    'Fat lesbian' remark gets talk jock DePetro fired


    Sources have confirmed that WRKO-AM radio talk show host John DePetro has b[​IMG]een fired from the station. DePetro, who has been with WRKO since 2004, came under fire yesterday after he referred to Green-Rainbow party candidate for governor Grace Ross a "fat lesbian" during his talk show. Four months ago, the shock jock was suspended for two days after calling former Turnpike chief Matt Amorello a "****" on the air. Jimmy Kiesling, DePetro's board operator, was also fired.


    ...Sources say Julie Kahn, vice president and New England market manager for Entercom, owner of WRKO-AM (680) and WEEI-AM (850), is "furious."
