St Louis radio host launches explicit rant at female colleague
New York Post
A radio presenter from St Louis, Missouri, has lost his TV job after a leaked recording saw him brand his co-host a “f***ing fat, nasty b****” during an ad break.
Former Fox 2 anchor Victor Faust directed the shocking remarks at The Edge co-host Crystal Cooper during the KFNS show on 13 September.
In an edited audio clip of the exchange released by the local paper, St Louis Post-Dispatch, Mr Faust can be heard telling Ms Cooper she “brought up a stupid subject” by criticising his computer skills and that “the problem is you think whatever you do is right”.
“You had no f***ing reason to attack me on-air yesterday, and you did … Your kids have a terrible f***ing mom, I feel sorry for them.”
Ms Cooper replied by saying Mr Faust was “not my boss” and “did not attack” her co-presenter.
Twitter users went on to condemn Mr Faust for the “ugly” remarks made towards Ms Cooper:

\u201c@victorjfaust Nope. A \u201cmistake\u201d is an inadvertent action. You repeatedly called her all kinds of horrible things. You disrespected her and all women everywhere with your hateful, entitled tirade. You acted like you are SO above her. That not a mistake\u201d
