Video: Kevin Kiley Announces Resignation from 92.3 The Fan

Kevin Kiley appeared on Channel 19's broadcast this evening to make an announcement. The simple version: After filling the airwaves with garbage for many years, Kiley will cease doing so.

He announced that back in November he had submitted his resignation to Top Men at 92.3, to be effective at the end of this month. Tony Zarella asks Kiley where he goes from here, and Kiley replies, "I go away."

The morning show host, of course, gathered national headlines last month when he said that there was no place for women to be coaches in men's professional sports. (This followed earlier comments where Kiley said he believed women also shouldn't be refs or Hall of Fame voters. So Cleveland had been blessed with a Grade-A class act.)

Anyway, no more.

"For reasons that were unrelated to this," Kiley says, he's out. Those reasons have to do with the fact that he doesn't think his principles of business match with the principles of 92.3. (For starters, Kiley probably thinks the station shouldn't hire any women.)

"I'll be ending at the end of the month, maybe at the end of the show," Kiley added, before bringing up Orson Welles and Howard Stern and, once again, attempting to defend himself for his absolutely ignorant comments. "I have no right to accept censorship," he says. "Demand the truth."
