Craig Silverman, a previous chief deputy district lawyer in Denver and chat-display host on the conservative 710 KNUS radio station, mentioned he was sacked mid-present Saturday right after criticizing President Donald Trump.

Silverman also wrote a Facebook post in support of former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, who was testifying in impeachment hearings on Friday.

He called Silverman's claims that he was removed for speaking negatively about the president "misleading".

Silverman, who had hosted his show for five years, says he voted for Trump in 2016 but has soured on the president since.

Taylor also said Silverman's claim that he was sacked is false because he works as an independent contractor and "that agreement still remains in effect".

But after committing a false start on a third & one, Winston had a pass intended for wide receiver Mike Evans fall incomplete. "Last week, for the first time ever with Drew Brees under center at home , the New Orleans Saints didn't score a touchdown".

Associates from KNUS did not promptly reply to a request for comment. I have seen countless witnesses testify and she was one of the all-time finest. "He made up our minds it became once important for him to look all over city, and acknowledged so on his program Saturday". The belief that he became once relieved of his program resulting from he criticized President Trump is most ceaselessly false. "We've never told Mr. Silverman the position to take on his impeachment".

"These reports are misleading to our listeners and how we pride ourselves on a free thoughtful opinion on our radio stations", Taylor said. On Tucker Carlson's Fox Data repeat Wednesday, feeble train division senior manual Christian Whiton acknowledged Kent and Taylor "locate like of us that sat by themselves at recess". Later in the week, Carlson said, "by the end, the hearings sounded like a therapy session or an extended meeting with the HR department, the definition of hell".

Tom Tradup, vice president for news and talk programming at Salem Radio Network - a 24/7 national news and talk network run by Salem Media Group - told CNN Business in an email that the network "has nothing to do with personnel decisions made by individual radio stations ... whether (as in this case) Salem-owned or not".

"Pathetic", Walsh said on Twitter. However (Salem Media Community) & nearly all of conservative discuss radio don't desire honesty. But the host of another KNUS show on Twitter Saturday said the cancellation "had nothing to do with anyone's politics". "They want Trump worship".

"I are unable to and will not toe rigid Trump occasion line".
