ESPN’s Columbus affiliate 97.1 The Fan tweeted that controversial radio host Scott Torgerson, a Co-Host of “Common Man and the Torg,” is no longer employed by the station. Torgerson tweeted his wish that Desmond Howard would “get fired or die” so he could watch GameDay again. The comment, though not literal, was indecent. Free speech is a constitutional right. Remaining employed as a consequence of said speech is not. “The Torg” had been suspended indefinitely by the station and admonished by his colleague Kirk Herbstreit.
