Sports Talker Fired Over Tweet


Scott Torgeson no longer works for the ESPN radio affiliate (97.1 The Fan) in Columbus, Ohio. The station posted the following message on its Twitter page Wednesday afternoon: "Scott Torgerson is no longer employed by our company as of today. We appreciate his contributions and wish him well in his future endeavors." It was a Twitter post that originally got Torgeson suspended and eventually fired.

Over a week ago Torgeson tweeted, "I wish Desmond Howard would get fired or die so I can watch Gameday again." Today he was officially fired by the station. Torgeson was co-host of the afternoon show "The Common Man & The Torg" on the ESPN affiliate in Columbus. Now the show is simply called "The Common Man," hosted by Mike Ricordati.
