Was A DFW Air Personality Fired For His Race?


In March 2015, Cumulus Media made a change in afternoons at one of its Dallas-Fort Worth FMs by hiring a nighttime personality previously with KCAQ-FM 104.7 in Oxnard-Ventura, Calif., who had made a name for himself with his “Block Party.”

Today, the air talent known to listeners as Crisco Kidd — legally known as Josh Carmona — is no longer a part of the air staff at KLIF-FM “Hot 93.3” in Dallas. He says he was wrongfully terminated because of his race. Cumulus dismisses those claims.
