John Ziegler Likes To Correct The Record
To be fair, he wants to correct the historical record about Palin and the way she was treated in the 2008 election by the media (egregious misquotes, attacks on family etc) I’m sure your personal opinion about her doesn’t matter whatever it may be.
Perhaps that's all too true it seems, though some might argue that allegedly outing a former co-worker, seemingly publishing private emails, among other accusations of former co-workers because you were fired might be going a bit too far. One record remains unclear to me, though.
What was the precise nature of comments he made on air of a former girlfriend's breasts, underwear, genital grooming and libido that once got him sued? While he won on First Amendment grounds, I did read coverage suggesting the jury may have wanted him punished, they simply didn't know how. There are several links to explore. However, I was unable to clear that one portion of the record. Given his penchant for setting the record straight, perhaps John will also clear that mystery up.
He [was] also involved in a very public romance with one Darcie Divita, a former LA Lakers cheerleader who is part of a morning news show on the local Fox TV affiliate. The relationship is apparently Louisville's version of Ben & J.Lo, and its end is not amicable. In August '03, prompted by callers' questions on his regular "Ask John Anything" feature, Mr. Z. makes certain on-air comments about Ms. Divita's breasts, underwear, genital grooming, and libido. Part of the enduring controversy over John Ziegler's firing, which occurs a few days later, is exactly how much those comments and/or subsequent complaints from listeners and the Louisville media had to do with it. Mr. Z. has a long list of reasons for believing that his P.D. was really just looking for an excuse to can him. As for all the complaints, Mr. Z. remains bitter and perplexed: (1) "The comments I made about Darcie's physical attributes were extremely positive in nature"; (2) "Darcie had, in the past, volunteered information about her cleavage on my program"; (3) "I've gone much further with other public figures without incident … I mocked [Kentucky Governor] Paul Patton for his inability to bring Tina Conner to orgasm, [and] no one from management ever even mentioned it to me."
On this website you read and hear compelling and exclusive evidence that:
The John & Ken Show is fundamentally fraudulent and makes professional wrestling seem credible in comparison
John Kobylt is the main reason that John Ziegler is no longer at KFI
John Kobylt made one of the most racist statements ever made by a person in his position and, in the opinion of John Ziegler, is a racist.
Ken Chiampou is presumed to be a homosexual by nearly everyone at KFI and why that should matter to KFI listeners.
There is a lot that John & Ken don't want you to know about how they do their show and determine what they are going to say
Bill Handel is a fair-weathered “friend” who hates John & Ken but who committed one of the most massive acts of hypocrisy imaginable after strangely going out of his way to defend John Kobylt
KFI management is utterly incompetent and corrupt
John Ziegler is hardly perfect and not talented enough to be a success doing KFI's brand of deceptive talk.
At the end of John Ziegler's tenure at KFI things got so absurd that they were absolutely comical
Ziegler's replacement is, according to industry observers who have worked with him, a boring, lazy, porn obsessed, phony who is "one of the worst people I have ever encountered in radio."
