Two days after the incident and one day after his suspension, midday producer and weekend host MIKE BACSIK has been fired by CUMULUS Talk KTCK-A (SPORTSRADIO 1310 THE TICKET)/DALLAS. BACSIK's offensive posts on TWITTER during the DALLAS MAVERICKS-SAN ANTONIO SPURS game on SUNDAY drew national attention MONDAY, leading to the firing.
CUMULUS Market Manager DAN BENNETT told the DALLAS MORNING NEWS' BARRY HORN that the suspension was to allow an investigation and, "When we got all the facts and were able to look at the entire situation, we made our decision."
BACSIK has apologized for the comments, which culminated in his post reading "congrats to all the dirty Mexicans in SAN ANTONIO."
