Dan Sileo let go by South Florida radio station

Former Tampa Bay sports-radio host Dan Sileo has been dismissed from another job. Sileo was let go by WQAM 560-AM in South Florida after less than a year on the job. Sileo, the former University of Miami football player, was fired a year ago from his morning show on WDAE 620-AM, in part because he referred to three African-American football players on the air as "monkeys.'' In January, Sileo was suspended for two days in January by WQAM for sexist insults aimed at Fox broadcaster Erin Andrews. WQAM did not elaborate on the reason Sileo was let go. On Twitter, Sileo said, "FIRED FOR SPEAKING MY MIND BABY!!!! Love it!!''
