Radio host Kevin Kietzman has been pulled off-air indefinitely by WHB over his comments about Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and has issued an apology.
On Monday, Kietzman, the longtime host of “Between the Lines” on Sports Radio 810 WHB in Kansas City, got personal in his criticism of Reid. Kietzman discussed the issues Tyreek Hill is facing and combined Hill’s disciplinary issues with the problems Reid’s sons have had. He concluded Reid has problems disciplining people. Keep in mind that two of Reid’s sons have had drug problems, including son Garrett, who died in 2012 of a heroin overdose.
A day after the controversial comments made headlines and received attention, the station’s owner, Union Broadcasting, issued a statement sayingthey were pulling Kietzman off-air for now.
“We are aware of the controversial comments made by Kevin Kietzman during yesterday’s broadcast of Between the Lines. We have decided to take the immediate step to take Kevin off the air until further notice as we review this matter.
