Missouri host who tweeted he'd 'ram a hot poker up' Parkland survivor resigns TV gig

A St. Louis radio host has reportedly resigned from one of his two broadcast jobs after tweeting about ramming "a hot poker up David Hogg's ass."

Hogg is one of the teenage survivors of the Parkland shooting in Florida who has become a vocal advocate for stronger gun laws.

Jamie Allman, whose "Allman in the Morning" show runs on conservative talk radio station KFTK, 97.1 FM, deleted the March 26 tweet and set his Twitter account to private. But the screenshot of the tweet made the rounds over the last few days and caused quite a stir.

As advertisers walked away from his shows, Allman resigned from his TV gig on Monday, the Washington Post reported Monday evening. In addition to his morning radio show, Allman appeared on a nightly news and commentary segment on KDNL-TV Channel 30, an ABC affiliate owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group.

Fuck you, Allman! Don't let the door hit you on the way out!

1. David and Goliaths, indeed.

He keeps kicking a$$ and taking names.

He's an amazingly strong individual and his attackers are vile excuses for human beings.

6. Calling them "deplorable" is being too kind!

I have much harsher words for scumbags like Allman!

10. It goes beyond simply being violent.

Since he's talking about a teenage boy's anal region, there's a bit of a sexual overtone in the sick fuck's threat as well. Probably should keep this guy away from schools.

19. Local St. Louis paper doesn't say he resigned.

A spokesman for the Sinclair Broadcast Group, which owns the ABC affiliate KDNL, confirmed Monday evening that Allman’s show is finished.

“His show is canceled and he is off the air immediately,” Ronn Torossian, the CEO of the PR firm 5W, said by email.

Torossian did not provide any other details.

<snip>

Allman could not be immediately reached for comment. FM NewsTalk 97.1 program director Jeff Allen did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


The story's most recent update was an hour ago. No mention of "resigned".

20. I Read Another Post Here Too (Pintobean)

The OP here says resigned, but your cite and another post basically said he got launched. Good.

Pintobean: sorry i meant to reply directly to your post and hit the wrong button.
