Jordan Smith Out At XX 1090/San Diego
March 17, 2009 at 5:15 AM (PT)
The other shoe has dropped for BCA Sports XEPRS-A (XX 1090)/SAN DIEGO afternoon co-host JORDAN SMITH, who the SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE reports has been fired after a two-day suspension for what the station called "some very unfortunate and hurtful comments utilizing unacceptable language." VP/Programming HAL BROWN will take SMITH's slot alongside IRWIN EARL MILAN on the show, and producer TED MENDENHALL will also appear on the air.
SMITH and MILAN's show last WEDNESDAY involved comments ripping CHARGERS running back LADANIAN TOMLINSON, TOMLINSON's mother, the TOMLINSONS' annual THANKSGIVING turkey giveaway (with the SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE's JAY POSNER quoting SMITH as telling "MAMA LT" to "stick the turkeys up your ass"), and CHARGERS management.
