Fired Atlanta Sports Talker Hired by Dickey


Multiple local reports out of Atlanta say Chris Dimino has been hired by (680-AM The Fan) Dickey Broadcasting three months after being fired for being part of a tasteless on air prank by (790-AM The Zone) Lincoln Financial media. Dimino, Steak Shapiro and Nick Cellini were all fired after they aired a fake, mocking interview with former New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason, who suffers from the degenerative nerve disease ALS. Dimino has a non-compete until March but was spotted at an Atlanta Falcons press conference.

Dickey Broadcasting Company GM David Dickey replied to a Channel 11 e-mail and said, "It looks like Chris may be joining our company at some point in the future; that's about all I can say at this moment."
