 One of the country’s most controversial radio talk show hosts has been fired. ESPN’s Pittsburgh affiliate, WEAE, fired Mark Madden following his comments last week about Senator Edward Kennedy.

After it was discovered that Sen. Kennedy has a malignant brain tumor Madden said (live on the air),

 

“I’m very disappointed to hear Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts is near death because of a brain tumor. I always hoped Senator Kennedy would live long enough to be assassinated. And I wonder if he will receive a get well card from the Kopechne family.”

Madden also once served as a color commentator for WCW wrestling.
