Signing Off: S.F. Sports Talk Show Host Ralph Barbieri Dropped From KNBR-AM
Published April 12, 2012
MOVES IN MIAMI: WQAM-AM Program Dir Lee Feldman confirmed that host Sid Rosenberg “has been fired from WQAM following an arrest and DUI charge late last week.” Rosenberg had been with WQAM “since September of 2009 after a three-year stint at 790 The Ticket” (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 4/11). In Miami, Barry Jackson noted WQAM “immediately hired former University of Miami defensive lineman Dan Sileo to replace” Rosenberg on the 3:00-7:00pm ET show, beginning immediately. Sileo was “fired by a Tampa station last month after referring to three black players” as "monkeys." Sileo generated “high ratings during his time as a morning sports talk host in Tampa.” Jackson wrote Tuesday was a “tumultuous day in local radio" with WAXY-AM host Jorge Sedano leaving the station "to concentrate on his job doing a fantasy sports show for CBSSports.com” (MIAMIHERALD.com, 4/10).
