Hear Audio Of The Fired Atlanta Radio Hosts Mocking Steve Gleason’s ALS
Three Atlanta radio hosts, Nick Cellini, Chris Dimino, and Steak Shapiro of ’790 the Zone’ were fired after they mocked former NFL player Steve Gleason who suffers from Lou Gehrig’s Disease (which is a nasty disease that gradually takes away every single motor function of your body, one at a time). How these guys thought this would be funny is beyond me but as a radio show host myself (much less a halfway decent human being), this is simply unthinkable, but guaranteed they’re not laughing now. Listen to the audio from their show which will be the last you ever hear from these guys on air ever. And don’t forget to click each host’s name for their Twitter accounts so you can see more of what makes these guys stellar individuals. Absolutely appalling. These guys should be made to do the ALS walk every single year for the rest of their lives…
My apologies to everyone. It was a stupid attempt at humor that backfired. Emphasis on stupid.

I have personally apologized to Steve Gleason & am profoundly sorry for the ill humored comments from today’s show.
