Tony Bruno has been suspended for a week, beginning Monday night, for making inflammatory remarks on his Twitter account last week, according to a reliable broadcast source close to the situation.
Bruno, on local radio, (KNBR, 1050 7-10 PM), and whose show is syndicated over the Fox Sports Radio network referred to SF Giants pitcher, Ramon Ramirez, as an "illegal alien" on his Twitter page, (he has subsequently apologized) and called manager Bruce Bochy a "coward."
Bruno has been vilified by the local San Francisco Bay Area sports fans and Bochy called his remarks about Ramirez "racist." In response, Bruno said he regretted the "alien" remark, but stood by his stance about Bochy.
Bruno has worked for ESPN Radio, Sporting News Radio, and Fox Sports Radio. He has been on KNBR since 1992. He was recently let go from the "Gary Radnich Show" last week, but his national show still airs on KNBR 1050.
