University of North Dakota Radio Announcer Suspended Two Games For Using the Phrase "Choke Job" in Interview with UND Coach After Loss

Team loses basketball game due to late collapse. Radio announcer for the losing school interviews the losing coach after the game. Radio announcer uses the phrase “choke job.” Radio announcer gets suspended.

Ralston interviewed UND coach Brian Jones shortly after North Dakota’s 74-72 overtime loss to Northern Arizona at the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center. UND held a narrow lead in the final minute of regulation, but Northern Arizona rallied to force overtime and eventually won the game.

Ralston used the words “choke job” in his interview session with Jones.

This sounds like it has the makings of a “fair or foul” segment on PTI. My $ 0.02, even though you didn’t ask – guess this means if you work for the school in a media capacity, you must be a shill.

Because you want to see it first!
