OKLAHOMA CITY –
Oklahoma City radio host Ronnie Kaye says he’s been fired from 92.5 KOMA due to an on-air comment made on Oct. 9.
According to a Facebook post from Oklahoma County Accessor Larry Stein, Kaye was let go after saying, “It’s Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples Day. I don’t know what indigenous means, and I don’t care.”
Kaye addressed his comment in a post saying, “I had no intentions of offending the Native American Heritage.”
Kaye has been a fixture in OKC radio for decades and is a member of the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
