Radio Host Fired Over Comment

Nancy Perkins, Deseret Morning News (Salt Lake City), Oct. 27

ST. GEORGE — A part-time Cedar City radio host who was fired last week for an on-air comment is seeking legal advice.

“I think what they did was very unfair,” said Paul Fice, host of KSUB radio’s morning merchandize trading and selling show. He was fired this past Thursday by station owner Cherry Creek Radio of Denver for joking with a caller that a “Mexican roping saddle” being put up for sale might be useful to “rope Mexicans” trying to cross the border.


Whoever complained about Fice also apparently has a lot of pull in the community, he said.

“I don’t know who the lady is, but she apparently started calling sponsors and I was told she got five of them to pull their ads,” Fice said, adding that fans of “Tradio” upset about the firing have been calling the station and his house.
