    Radio personality fired for Gators hat
    Associated Press
    August 17, 2010

    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- An Arkansas radio personality announced that she was fired Monday, two days after wearing a Florida Gators hat to an Arkansas Hogs news conference.

    Renee Gork announced on Twitter that she had been fired by KAKS, a northwest Arkansas radio station that calls itself Hog Sports Radio. Gork had worn a Gator hat Saturday to a news conference with Arkansas Razorbacks football coach Bobby Petrino.

    Petrino, whose team lost to the Gators last season 23-20 at Florida, commented on Gork's hat after answering a question she asked. "And that will be the last question I answer with that hat on," Petrino said.

    Gork, a Florida graduate, said she grabbed the hat without thinking Saturday because it was raining outside. She also said she sent a letter of apology to the university and Petrino.

    "Was hoping to publicly apologize to coach Petrino and UA fans on the show today ... but I won't get that chance," Gork wrote on KAKS' Twitter account. "I've been fired."

    Gork could not be reached Monday for comment. There was no telephone listing in her name in the Fayetteville area.

    KAKS general manager Dan Storrs confirmed in a telephone interview with The Associated Press that Gork was no longer working for the station but declined to comment further, saying it was a personnel matter.

    However, he added, "This radio station is Hog Sports Radio. We are very biased. We support the Razorbacks 100 percent."

    She might have grabbed the hat by accident,(might have) but I'll bet someone mentioned it to her before the press conference,so I'm sure she had time to remove it.
