Arkansas Razorbacks Broadcaster Fired for Wearing Florida Gators Hat

August 17, 2010

Broadcaster Renee Gork has been fired after she was spotted wearing a Florida Gators hat at a recent news conference with Arkansas Razorbacks football coach Bobby Petrino.

They sure do take their football seriously in the SEC!

From ESPN:

Gork, a Florida graduate, said it was an innocent mistake to have the hat on in the first place and that she sent a letter of apology to Petrino, who remarked during the press conference that he wouldn’t be answering any more questions from her while she was wearing that hat.

“It wasn’t a stunt I was trying to pull, and I wasn’t trying to get any attention. It was just a dumb mistake,” said Gork, who added that her station (KAKS Hog Sports Radio) fired her because it didn’t appear that she would be allowed to cover practice any longer.
