Sports Radio host Dan Sileo is no stranger to controversy. He was fired 11 months ago from WDAE in Tampa after referring to three African American NFL Free Agents as “Monkeys” and earlier this year he was suspended for two days for tweeting that Erin Andrews should “get off the sideline and do porn”.
Yesterday, Sileo was fired by Miami radio station WQAM and today we are finding out the reason. Sileo made a disparaging remark about himself, saying he was cheap because he is half Jewish. I contacted the people at the Anti Defamation League of Florida who stated that they received constituent complaints that Sileo’s remarks propagated a negative stereotype of the Jewish community. The ADL filed a complaint with WQAM management, and that complaint was the ultimate tipping point that led to Sileo’s termination.
With no prior history, the comment itself may have just resulted in a slap on the wrist, but when you factor in all his recent transgressions, the decision to terminate him was made.
Radio guys are like basketball coaches, no matter how many times they get fired they always seem to be rehired somewhere else. In this case it will be interesting to see if a guy with racism, sexism and antisemitism on his resume in the last year will be able to find work going forward.

In a move that should surpise no one, WQAM has fired Dan Sileo.
