KFI said today it is suspending the popular talk show pair "for making insensitive and inappropriate comments about the late Whitney Houston." Gary Lycan of the Register says they called Houston a "crack ho." Lycan puts the audio online.
KFI's announcement said, "Management does not condone, support or tolerate statements of this kind."
In the suspension announcement, Kobylt said, "We made a mistake, and we accept the station's decision. We used language that was inappropriate, and we sincerely apologize to our listeners and to the family of Ms. Houston."
John and Ken will be back on KFI Feb. 27, the station said.
