UTV U.K. national Sports station TALKSPORT has fired talk host JON GAUNT for calling REDBRIDGE COUNCIL member MICHAEL STARK a "Nazi" and "ignorant pig" on its NOVEMBER 7th show. In the widely-reported incident, GAUNT ripped the councillor for the council's decision to ban smokers from foster parenthood, later calling STARK a "health Nazi," but apologizing before the show was over.
IAN GAUNT, who has been filling in since GAUNT's suspension, will continue hosting the show indefinitely.
