Wearing Florida hat to press conference gets Arkansas radio host fired

Petrino commented on Gork’s choice of headwear after answering a question she asked.

“And that will be the last question I answer with that hat on,” Petrino said.

Gork, an on-air personality for Springdale radio station KAKS, which calls itself Hog Sports Radio, said she was fired Monday by the station.

“Was hoping to publicly apologize to coach Petrino and UA fans on the show today … but I won’t get that chance,” Gork wrote on KAKS’ Twitter account. “I’ve been fired.”
