Lenihan, KTRS/St. Louis Reach Settlement
March 30, 2006 at 5:12 AM (PT)
Former KTRS-A/ST. LOUIS talk host DAVE LENIHAN and the station have reached a settlement deal over the host's MARCH 22 firing for a tongue-slip that had him calling Secretary of State CONDOLEEZZA RICE a "coon" instead of calling her potential hiring as NFL Commissioner a "coup."
The deal was reached shortly after the local chapter of the NAACP held a press conference announcing that the group would try to convince KTRS to rehire LENIHAN, calling for the station to forgive the host. LENIHAN is being replaced by returning host MCGRAW MILHAVEN.
