Apparently, from another post on Topix....

Someone said it all started because of a joke he did on the air. He said something about the worst pickup line in the world being, "Hey! I'm Magic Johnson!" or some crap. Someone got offended and called the radio station to complain, saying both his parents died from AIDS. Rusty (whose real name is Lee France) started calling the kid a 'faggot' and was telling him to get the dick out of his ass. The kid said that his parents weren't gay, that they received blood transfusions a long time ago and contracted the disease.
Apparently Coach and Libby were apologizing to the caller, saying that no one was meant to be offended by Rusty's joke, and they were taking up for the kid.
Rusty was fired.

I liked hearing his comical satire in the mornings but when you're wrong...you're wrong. People do mess up and perhaps he should have been given a second chance.

I don't think he should have gotten a second chance. He was clearly bashing the kid on the telephone and obviously didn't give a crap about harrassment. His behavior was innapropriate. Yes, some of his stuff was hilarious... But I think what he did (if this story is true) was uncalled for.

Actually... 102.7FM is doing just fine without him especially since they're one of the most listened radio stations in the area moreso than 96.1. Who really needs Rusty Bumper as being the new face for a radio station when he's not even funny? As for Losers comment, it was in the local paper... try picking up one sometime.

I was listening that morning and heard that caller. Rusty was wrong and deserved it. You can be funny, but there is a line when it comes to certain things. None of the stations here are really good, so I got XM radio.

I agree! Coach sounds bored and annoyed. I can't blame him at all. Maggie has the personality of a wet sponge. I listen to Bob and Tom now. I was never a fan of the nationally broadcast morning shows, but I just can't stand Maggie. I would listen to 102.7 if it were just Coach.

I agree I like coach but he has been very boring lately. Maggie is extremely immature maybe there is too much of a generation gap between them.
