Song Parody Gets Santa Clara Basketball Voice Fired
May 15, 2007 at 5:48 AM (PT)
The radio voice of SANTA CLARA UNIVERSITY men's basketball has been fired over a song parody he sang at a fundraising golf tournament/banquet last TUESDAY in SAN JOSE.
The song parody (of BEYONCE's "IRREPLACEABLE") by 12-year BRONCOS radio voice DAVE LEWIS, lampooning the way coaches get fired and hired, was interpreted as a slap at the way the school handled the possibly forced retirement of coach DICK DAVEY in FEBRUARY and the hiring of UCLA assistant KERRY KEATING.
BRONCOS games are aired on SALEM Talk KNTS-A/SAN FRANCISCO. LEWIS continues as a sports anchor on crosstown CBS News KCBS-A.
