From the San Antonio Express News’ Richard Oliver :
The fallout from last week’s controversial skit on KTKR-AM 760, which included a fabricated interview with Denver Nuggets guard Allen Iverson, came down hard Monday when an executive producer was let go by the station.
The dismissal of Eric Gray (above), who oversaw “Sports Talk San Antonio” and created the inflammatory segment, was announced to employees in one of two internal e-mails obtained by the San Antonio Express-News.
The skit, which involved an Iverson impersonator answering questions on the air, included references to drugs, seeking sex from “Mexican” women on the River Walk and the accidental shooting of a homeless man who turned out to be an “illegal alien.”
The program’s co-hosts, Walter Pasacrita and Jeff Vexler, who also have control of on-air material, received no apparent discipline from the station. Both were on the air for Monday’s talk show and avoided mention of the controversy.
The Spurs, however, have cut all ties with Pasacrita and Vexler, including forbidding their involvement with any of the team’s programming for postseason games. Additionally, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has pulled out of his weekly call-in sessions with the station.
