Radio host Patrick Connor fired by KNBR for Chloe Kim comment

Patrick Connor

Radio host Patrick Connor has been fired by KNBR for his inappropriate comment about 17-year-old Chloe Kim.

Connor just started a job on Barstool Radio on SiriusXM, which is separate from his duties on Bay Area sports radio station KNBR. While co-hosting “Dialed-In with Dallas Braden,” — a show that was two days old — Connor called Kim a “hot piece of a–.”

“She’s fine as hell! If she was 18, you wouldn’t be ashamed to say that she’s a little hot piece of a–. And she is. She is adorable. I’m a huge Chloe Kim fan,” Connor said.

His comment came the day after Kim won gold at the Winter Olympics in the women’s halfpipe. Connor initially showed no remorse for his comments, but he apologized on Wednesday morning.

KNBR initially said Connor had been suspended, but then program director Jeremiah Crowe came down even harder, saying that Connor is no longer with the station.

Though his comments cost him his job with KNBR, Connor does not look like he will lose his gig at Barstool Radio. Sticking true to what fans have come to expect from Barstool, the company’s founder says they won’t let “crybabies” dictate their actions.

Braden addressed the remarks during his show on Wednesday. He called Connor’s comments “an egregious professional error. It is nothing to make light of. We understand the severity and seriousness of the comments made. … that is not who we are.”
