Rochester radio hosts fired for 12 minute transphobic rant on-air

Yesterday I posted about a radio morning show team in Rochester, New York, that went on a 12 minute transphobic rant after reading the news that the city would begin to offer healthcare benefits to transgender people.

The comments between the two radio personalities were extremely vicious and ill-informed. The hosts have now been fired:

“This morning Entercom fired Kimberly and Beck effective immediately,” Entercom Rochester vice president and general manager Sue Munn said in a prepared statement.

“Their hateful comments against the transgender community do not represent our station or our company. We deeply apologize to the transgender community, the community of Rochester, and anyone else who was offended by their comments.

“We are proud of our past work on behalf of the local LGBT community and we remain committed to that partnership.”
