Radio host fired for Giants comments gets new job

SAN FRANCISCO -- Larry Krueger, the talk show host fired for making racially tinged comments about the San Francisco Giants, has been hired by another radio station.

Krueger was hired Thursday by KGO radio to provide commentary
during afternoon sports updates for the radio station.

Krueger had been a night talk show host on KNBR before
complaining on air about too many "brain-dead Caribbean hitters
hacking at slop nightly" and saying Giants manager Felipe Alou's "mind has turned to Cream of Wheat."

Krueger apologized and was suspended for a week without pay. He
was later fired before returning to the air.

KGO news director Greg Tantum said Krueger's experience and Bay
Area roots made him an ideal choice for the new job.
