Ex-Michigan TV broadcaster fired after off-air attack on radio co-host


Former Michigan broadcaster Vic Faust was fired from his job as an anchor on the Fox affiliate in St. Louis after a recording of him berating a female radio colleague last week was leaked.

Faust co-hosts “The Edge” morning show on KFNS-FM (100.7) radio station in Missouri with Crystal Cooper. He used profanity several times while insulting Cooper in the leaked recording just after the radio show finished recording on Sep. 13.

“Vic Faust no longer works for Fox 2, KPLR (Channel 11) or Nexstar Media,” station general manager Kurt Krueger told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Wednesday morning. 

Faust apologized on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.

“My words hurt Crystal, my colleagues and family,” he wrote. “I made a huge mistake and I’m ashamed. As I work to earn trust again, I hope we can have an open dialogue about respect in the workplace and forgiveness.”
