Think You've Had It Rough? Morning Host Stabbed, Fired Twice And Booked For Assault

Easily the year's winner for any "what else could go wrong file" award has to go to former CLEAR CHANNEL Sports WCWA-A (1230) morning host TROY NEFF. After being stabbed three times during a road rage incident on DECEMBER 10th, NEFF got out of the hospital and was let go by the station for what was reported to be "an internal dispute between NEFF and CLEAR CHANNEL administrators."
Soon thereafter, the TOLEDO FREE PRESS dropped a regular column he was writing due to plagiarism. To top it all off, the local ABC-TV affiliate website now reports that NEFF is facing assault charges over the road rage incident. His attorney told the TOLEDO BLADE newspaper his actions were in self-defense.
