    I apologize if there is already a thread that explains this but I still don't know for fact why Nick was fired from Artie's show. I know some of the rumors mentioned Artie's suspected drug use but I have not read/heard any definitive facts. Thank you in advance for your help.

    No official word. If I had to guess, the higher-ups didn't like his politics and wanted Artie for a solo show from the beginning, so they kept him on until they could be sure Artie wasn't gonna kill himself on air and then let Nick go, paid in full, for his silence.

    The short version: They didn't get along. Nick may have given the producers an ultimatum because he mistakenly thought they would get rid of Artie before they got rid of him. He was wrong.

    That's part of it, and an employee from one of their affiliates claimed on a newspaper's comment page (after the affiliate was bought by CBS sports and everyone was laid off) that the advertisers were pissed at Nick (allegedly) for injecting politics into the show constantly, when they had bought time on a sports show (and right wing politics theoretically turns off 50 % of listeners). He also didn't help himself in their interview with Bonnie Bernstein: [video=youtube;SoMQXva-59U]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoMQXva-59U[/video]

    It had nothing to do with Artie's drug use, that was just assholes and Gunnar making shit up.

    It was actually Bonnie Bernstein who got Nick fired. She was a guest on the show right before Christmas break, and Nick and Artie "got into it" as the kids say, and that made Bonnie very uncomfortable.

    She complained to her jewish overlords and next thing you know, Nick was gone.

    Artie has stated that he and Nick are still friends, but has Nick ever stated it? If not, someone's a cunt, or someone's lying. There's no grey area there.

    Nick must have signed an NDA.

    And boy oh boy, Bonnie Bernstein sure is impressed with herself. :shit:

    From what I've seen of the Artie show it's barely one step above local access cable. Nick was not smart injecting politics into a lightweight show, though. It was about as funny as that Bill Maher guy.

    What did they "get into it" about. Politics? God forbid, someone attempts to inject some opinion into a discussion about baseball.

    maybe Nick wanted to be the drunken, sloppy, unorganized, and irresponsible member of the team but Artie already sat in that chair?

    Artie was clearly on drugs at the end of last year and I think Nick called him out on it

    From what I heard, Artie wanted to concentrate on Sports, Nick wanted to go more in to politics.

    That seems to be the general consensus.

    Nick tried to sell drugs to this dude who sometimes posts here named Ruffypup.

    Ruffypup refused, and called out Nick.

    Which resulted in Nick's firing.
