The dulcet tones of Scott Kaplan will no longer be heard on San Diego’s XX 1090 after the longtime radio host was fired yesterday. Kaplan was terminated following comments he made recently about The Mtn’s Andrea Lloyd. Kaplan co-hosted a morning sports talk show with former NFL linebacker, Billy Ray Smith, cleverly titled “Scott & BR.” From UT San Diego:
Kaplan’s comments drew outrage after being reported last week in UT San Diego. On his daily sports talk radio show Jan. 25, Kaplan called Mountain West studio analyst Andrea Lloyd a “beast,” an “animal,” a “monster” and a “sasquatch of a woman.”
Lloyd is an analyst for The Mountain West Network, as well as a former Olympian and member of the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. It’s still not entirely clear what exactly prompted the insults from Kaplan.
Kaplan said, “I think that she is currently a woman. I cannot confirm for you that she has been a woman her entire life. My guess is that at some point she had some form of surgery. Have you seen this chick?”
He later said, “I’ll take Holly Rowe’s giant butt any day on ESPN, compared to this Sasquatch that they use.”
Holly Rowe must feel like a pretty special lady right now. And so close to Valentine’s Day too! In 2001, Kaplan was sued by a woman he called a “skank” on air after she had his car towed. I’ve never listened to the guy, but he seems like a real prize.
