Dan McNeil fired by Entercom after ‘unacceptable’ Maria Taylor comments

0



Now, Dan McNeil has an actual job dilemma to think about.

McNeil was let go by Entercom on Tuesday after The Score radio host sent out a crude tweet about ESPN’s Maria Taylor during the network’s “Monday Night Football” coverage.

“NFL sideline reporter or a host for the AVN (Adult Video News) annual awards presentation?” McNeil tweeted before deleting around a half hour later.

The longtime Chicago host was out of a job less than 24 hours later.

“For each one of us our words have power,” Rachel Williamson, regional president for Entercom, told Deadspin in a statement. 

“For our brands and on-air personalities that is amplified and brings increased responsibility how we choose to use our voices. (Monday) night’s tweet, and its degrading and humiliating tone to a fellow female broadcaster, was unacceptable.

“We have the best teams in Chicago, and we must continue to hold ourselves to high expectations to continue to be leaders in our organization, our industry and our community. We apologize to all who were offended by Dan’s words, especially Maria.”

Taylor is one of the rising stars at the network, working Monday night broadcasts while also being a part of their NBA playoffs coverage.
