Shock-jock Jon Gaunt, fired from talkSPORT for calling a councillor "a Nazi", has snapped today and hit back at Independent media columnist Matthew Norman in his Sun column. "Gaunty" describes Norman's media column, which has baited him for weeks, as "pathetic" adding: "He seems to think it's funny to poke fun at my radio sacking rather than supporting me in my right to free speech." And he suggests a motive: "I don't suppose his lack of support is anything to do with the fact that he has been trying out for a gig on TalkSquawk these past few weeks." This feud will run and run.
Meanwhile, Gaunt is still promising a to announce "big news" on his website gaunty.com. He's not joining another radio station is he?
