Hat with gator instead of hog costs woman her job

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Wear the wrong hat, find another job. Northwest Arkansas sports radio personality Renee Gork found that out Monday after she wore a Florida Gator hat Saturday to a news conference by Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino following a scrimmage by the Razorbacks.

Petrino, whose team lost to the Gators last season 23-20 at Florida, commented on Gork's choice of headwear after answering a question she asked.

He said, quote, "And that will be the last question I answer with that hat on."

Gork, a Florida graduate, was an on-air personality for Springdale radio station KAKS, which calls itself Hog Sports Radio. She said she was fired Monday by the station.

KAKS general manager Dan Storrs declined to comment on personnel matters, confirming only that Gork was no longer working for the station.
