David Pollack of the SJ Mercury News reports that the firing of KNBR’s Larry Krueger has dominated the sports-talk airwaves. And both the station and the Giants went out of their way to say the team played no role in KNBR’s decision. Krueger, program manager Bob Agnew and morning show producer Tony Rhein were dismissed late Tuesday night (Aug. 9). Earlier that day, Rhein put two comic sound bites over the air that station General Manager Tony Salvadore called an attempt to ridicule Giants Manager Felipe Alou. Krueger referred to “brain-dead Caribbean hitters hacking at slop nightly” on Aug. 3.
