DAMON BRUCE: SUSPENDED.
KNBR 1050 talk host, Damon Bruce has been suspended indefinitely by the station according to a reliable source.
Bruce , who co-hosts the 49ers pre-game radio show on KNBR was not on the air Sunday morning. He said some unflattering things about women in case you were on another planet.
UPDATE: 1: 59 PM PT:
A source close to the situation said the suspension went down yesterday. Both KNBR and Cumulus execs were said to have met privately and decided it would be inappropriate for Bruce to work the 49ers pre-game show given the nature of Bruce's anti-women rant last week.
The source said Bruce was "crushed"--the suspension is supposed to be two days but KNBR and Cumulus are said to be weighing in on public reaction. "You never know", said the source.
I'm also hearing that some 49ers officials were also "concerned" over the possibility of Bruce
appearing on the show this morning.
UPDATE 2: --4: 58 PM PT:
I've just been told by another source close to the situation that Bruce might be fired.
Supposedly, KNBR and Cumulus management will reportedly meet Monday to weigh the considerably negative reaction from Bruce's rant last week. What may have accelerated his fate was intense outrage from women who have flooded the e-mail box of Opps Mgr, Lee Hammer.
Moreover, says the source, KNBR has been inundated with complaints from a few advertisers. When that happens, bad things happen.
We'll know more Monday.
