Filling in for conservative talk-show host Michael Berry Tuesday morning, Houston lawyer Geoff Berg was direct with KPRC radio's listeners.
"I am a moderate," he announced. "Michael is a right-wing fanatic. We are going to disagree."
He was on point.
Listeners -- and apparently advertisers -- disagreed so much that KPRC/950 AM fired Berg after one day on the job, ending his brief stint as a talk-radio host.
"Right after the show, the producers told me that I'd done a great job as host," Berg said Wednesday.
"(But) later in the day, they said don't come back."
Berry, when asked for comment, sent the following reply via e-mail: "Geoff is a personal friend. I also think he can develop into a good talk-show host. He is quite to the left of me, but I think there is an audience for him. 950 is not that place."
Berg said he does not have any ill will toward Berry or KPRC, joking that the station fired him after "one day of diverse opinion."
