Monroe GM Canned

Missed this by a week or two but.....Ed Oretelli is no longer General Manager at KNOE/Monroe, LA....He was fired in late September due to an email he sent to Bill O'reilly's show on Fox "News" Channel.  FTV Live reported the news on September 25th.   In August Oretelli had his email read on Fox "News" that read ā€œIā€™m aggravated when I see smug liberals like Kirsten Powers and Alan Colmes on the air. Enough already with these leftists.ā€
