Kidd Chris Is Canned, Fired, and Gone?

16 May

I thought something was amiss when I heard a ‘best of’ being played this morning:

WYSP/Philadelphia has fired morning show host Kidd Chris and program director John Cook due to the airing of a racist song. The song “Schwoogies” was originally performed by Lady Gash in the studio on March 21 and sung to the tune of Blondie‘s “Call Me.” The song aired a few times before it became an issue resulting in the terminations.

“We found the song to be highly offensive and completely inappropriate for broadcast on our airwaves. When senior management of the station learned that it had been played, they took immediate steps to prevent it from ever appearing on the station again,” CBS Radio spokeswoman Karen Mateo told FMQB. “At the same time, we launched an extensive internal investigation into the situation including a thorough review of the editorial controls and systems we have in place to prevent this type of content from airing. We instituted additional educational training for the station, and have taken appropriate disciplinary action, including termination of the individuals involved.”

It WAS pretty offensive. Didn’t it play months ago though? I wonder where Foley will end up. I never understood why he placated all the racist stuff from some of the regular callers. It wasn’t really needed for the show to be funny.

For fans of the show: Half-Ninja (Chris McDevitt) reports there’s a party at Levy’s Comedy Club tonight.

    Preston and Steve are funnier anyway.

      Preston and Steve thought it would be entertaining to roll marbles down steps. If you liked that, you are a bigger tool than they are.

  2. Chris May 17, 2008 at 11:02 pm #

    they have never been funny a day in their lives

    The finny thing is, a preston and steve fan took time to read about what happened to Kidd Chris and to leave a comment… FAG

    What’s even funnier…P n S are gainfully employed while Chris is soon to be deepthroating a dwarf so he can go grab a burger. He’s nothing more than an exagerrated Howard Stern wannabe…except not as funny…except to himself. When you build your entire radio broadcast around “Don’t listen to those other guys…they’re stupid,” you’re already complete shit. I guess 6th place in the ratings was making him desperate.

    Any male that listens to those morning zoo hacks preston & steve is a FAG, ’nuff said.

  6. Wiz May 27, 2008 at 10:30 am #

    wow…you’re quick-witted like a fat kid is good at dodge ball. Well-played sir. Well played. I should have known I was a fag. Thanks for telling me that. Your mother will be disappointed.

    preston and steve, them 2 homo fags from mmr?? from what i hear, chris is gonna be on air rite after them on mmr. NOW WHAT BITCHES???

  8. KidKrisIsaFatJitbag June 16, 2008 at 10:16 pm #

    Yeah…mmr wants all those ratings kk was soaking up. That fat fuck is a burger flipper at best. I think mmr will stick with the burnt out hippie after PnS. Aint it sad that a pothead fag can keep his radio job…but fat boy cant? I swear to christ…if I bump into you in a bar kris…your eating an elbow to the temple….you shit talking pussy!

    Philly radio is dead in any direction. In this day and age radio it’s all about good music. In all fairness Kidd Chris was a lot more entertaining than P&S. They were unpredictable and the best thing for WYSP. WYSP was dead the day Stern left!

  10. BullShitChris July 16, 2008 at 10:32 pm #

    Fuck you Joboo.

  11. GilNutz July 19, 2008 at 8:50 pm #

    com’on are you serious, people still listen to preston and steve? Honestly? wow…thats…thats amazing.. CUS’ THEY ARE GAY…..

    “its a candy bar,.” MOO, faggots

  12. KidKrisIsaFatJitbag July 25, 2008 at 2:36 pm #

    Yes….to answer your question flat out. Steve Morrison is fucking funny. Now…lets see you call him a fag to his big mutant ass…and he will punch you in your throat..ya pussy!

  13. Steve July 27, 2008 at 8:44 pm #

    I love how the only response KC listeners can give is, “Preston and Steve are gay!” or some other crap like that. Honestly, grow up. Get back on the Short Bus or crawl back into the womb for a few more months because you’re obviously not ready for the real world.

    WMMR wouldn’t let Kid Chris follow Preston and Steve on air. That means they’d get rid of Pierre, which they wouldn’t do. You KC listeners are just going to have to face facts. KC is gone, P&S are still here and that’s not going to change for a long time. You can say what you want, but it’s not going to matter. You’re still going to have nothing to listen to in the morning.

    Seriously, as a female, I would be embarrassed if I were a guy who listened to Preston and Steve. I gave them a chance when no one else was on back before Kidd Chris came to town, and it was just pathetic. You guys that listen to them must really have the most lame sense of humor. And those stupid Gadzooks! bumper stickers? Give me a break. NOT FUNNY. Chris is out of a job because he challenged the ridiculous rules that limit freedom of speech on the airwaves. Preston and Steve’s humor is just soooo sugary sweet and PG-13. I’ll say they are perfect for pre-teens and your typical females. But guys, I would seriously have to question you if you were tuning in and actually finding their wise-cracking funny. And is that awful woman still on the show? She is just nauseating to hear…ugh. So man up! You shouldn’t be enjoying the same comedy as your little lady. That is if you HAVE a lady…

    Shut up cunt and go fry me some eggs!

  21. Kid Kris Blood Fart August 31, 2008 at 10:19 pm #

    If I wanted to hear your opinion…I would have taken my dick out of your mouth so you could tell me!

  22. Kid Kris Blood Fart August 31, 2008 at 10:21 pm #

    Who pulled your string? I thought that was for your tampon.

  23. Kid Kris Blood Fart August 31, 2008 at 10:23 pm #

    Hows that for pg-13? Now turn the vacuum back on and STFU!

  24. cc September 3, 2008 at 2:08 pm #

    Oh wow, I’m so hurt. Your comebacks are really creative and I’m sure the three people reading are very impressed. I can see that it takes you a few minutes between posts to come up with something witty to say. Well, I shouldn’t even say witty, although I’m sure that is what you were desperately struggling to achieve. I will say though that it’s wonderful that you spelled vacuum correctly…I wouldn’t have expected that. Perhaps your two minute delays were for spell-check.

    Thanks for sharing your opinion about me, since I obviously made my previous post a personal attack against you. But I really didn’t expect anything less! This has been quite amusing, so thanks. 🙂

    Your parents must have had a crystal ball CuntCunt. They could have gone with TwatTwat or BitchwhoreBitchwhore….but CuntCunt says it all.

    The spaces are called comedic pauses. You being a Kid Kunthead fan, I understand you not knowing from fucking funny.

    Kitchen and the bedroom cc…kitchen and the bedroom. Stick to what you were born for. But dont forget to clean the turlit every so often too.

    So I was bored and wanted to see what Kidd Chris was up to. Does everyone really think the firing is all about some racist song?? What big news story hit right before Foley was fired?? This has more to do with Kidd Chris’s buddy Larry Mentde, and a news anchor Kidd hated.. Alycia Lane.

    Foley so knew what Mendte was doing, they hung out together and he was probably pimping Larry for dirt.

    Your going to keep Kidd Chris on the are when CBS is being sued for millions…I don’t think so. Kidd Chris will never work in Philly again. Get use to Preston and Steve suckers.

    Yeah…it has nothing to do with the fact that he SUCKED! When you are unfunny…and have no ratings…then have your station fall into the FCC’s eye….and your a fat slob. You lose your job. 215-ti6-1212 has better ratings then that fat dickhead. And is more entertaining.

  29. RYEN December 11, 2008 at 12:32 pm #

    These guys were the funniest fuckers on radio! Nothing against Bubba, but I hope Howard 101 picks him up (pipe-dreaming, I suppose). Miss these fucking guys!

  30. Chriss December 12, 2008 at 1:19 am #

    Fuck Preston and Steve, Kidd Chris will be back. Preston and Steve will eventually take their washed up overused jokes and go off the air. The only people that listen to those idiots are borderline gay construction workers that only enjoy working because it keeps them away from their fat, disgusting, over-used wives. Kidd chris knows that everyone has a racist side no matter who you are. He’s just trying to portray it in a funny way. If you dont like it then simply change the station. He brings everything to the next level. Thats what some people need in the morning while we’re spending half of our lives sitting in traffic on the blue route for over an hour every day. the last thing i want to listen to is Steve trying to impersonate a chicken while Preston is reading the bizzare files. Either way i listen to satellite radio, if i ever listen to those old, washed up fags ever again i’m personally going to firebomb kacey’s house. Screw the FCC. Kidd Chris will be back.

  31. RYEN January 14, 2009 at 5:48 pm #

    PRESTON AND STEVE ARE THE WORST MORNING SHOW HOSTS! My entire office hates those assclowns! I listen to Bonaduce now, who is surprisingly funny. I would listen to old ladies shitting in a public bathroom before I’d ever listen to Preston and Steve–the biggest posers in Philadelphia!

  32. M.J.S. March 2, 2009 at 2:27 pm #

    If Kid Kunthead comes back….who will make the donuts? GTFO of here man! The only way dickwad will end up back on radio is if he stands on his boom box to change a lightbulb! For not listening to PnS….you sure know alot of the segments…what happened? To many fat chicks turn you down at the mixers make you bitter? Stern said alot more racist shit then Kris did….the difference is….Stern was funny….made his stations money…and knew when to get out while the gettin was good! KK was on a sinking ship…and his fat ass just made it go down faster! Pussies!!!

  33. Jersey Prophet August 7, 2009 at 7:46 pm #

    Opie and Anthony and Kidd Chris are the only two talented shows to do radio… p and s suck my left nut and everyone on there show is a jizz bucket. Wacky horns and shiity safe bits are for faggots…stern is an over rated tool bag also, who rapes his followers by taking months off and plays replays on satellite..What Kidd did was nothing more racist then what rev al dose all the time…Opie and Anthony and the K.i.d.d

    Funniest talk show ever!!!! Where did u go???

  36. Julie August 30, 2012 at 4:40 pm #

    Bring back Kidd Chris. You’ve ruined my mornings by firing him. Its stupid, that song was played months ago, why fire him now? He’s an amazing radio host and deserves his muthatruckin job back. Plus where will they play the hardcore shit that I like to listen to? Not on the Bert show that’s for damn sure. Give KD his job back.

  37. DontCareWhosjabbin September 10, 2012 at 8:40 am #

    I dont give a fuck about kidchris…I just hate that fuckin pop music! WTF ARE WE SUPPOSED TO LISTEN TO NOW?! There are already too many pop stations..I just want good music again!
