“They called me, I think it was after my Tweet, when I used the word c**t. I think maybe it showed up drunk or didn’t show up at all or showed up on a Monday morning with my sunny disposition at 6:30 a.m.,” he said.
“To be honest, I enjoyed the five minutes I was on the air with them, they were all very nice people, but at the end of this football season I would tell my manager’s manager I can’t go on Monday morning. ‘
Dane also claimed that “the juice wasn’t worth squeezing” because the breakfast radio “is ruining your weekend.”
