CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KFAN-A/MINNEAPOLIS has fired 9a-noon "P.A. AND DUBAY" co-host JEFF DUBAY in the wake of his arrest for crack cocaine possession last week, reports the MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE's JUDD ZULGAD. CLEAR CHANNEL MINNEAPOLIS Pres./Market Manager MIKE CRUSHAM confirmed to ZULGAD that DUBAY is "no longer with the company," and KFAN's website has deleted DUBAY from the show's pages, listing PAUL ALLEN as a solo host.
DUBAY's attorney MARK D. KELLY issued a statement on his client's behalf saying, "JEFF would like to take this opportunity to express his sincere gratitude to everybody who has expressed their support in his hour of need. With every crisis comes opportunity, and JEFF believes that given time, things will work out for the best."
