Controversial Radio Host Get New Gig

Dec 30, 2005 4:51 PM EST

Larry Krueger, the talk show host fired for making racially tinged comments about the San Francisco Giants, has been hired by another radio station.

Krueger was hired Thursday by KGO radio to provide commentary during afternoon sports updates for the radio station.

Krueger had been a night talk show host on KNBR before complaining on air about too many "brain-dead Caribbean hitters hacking at slop nightly" and saying Giants manager Felipe Alou's "mind has turned to Cream of Wheat."

Krueger apologized and was suspended for a week without pay. He was later fired before returning to the air.

KGO news director Greg Tantum said Krueger's experience and Bay Area roots made him an ideal choice for the new job.
