Marty Tirrell, Larry Cotlar Radio Argument Includes 12 On-Air F-Bombs

HuffPost tipster D.J. alerts us to this profanity-laced argument that was heard live on the air during a commercial break of a Des Moines radio show. Apparently the mics were still hot as the station cut to commercials, and what transpired was unfortunate. The Des Moines Register reports:

Listeners of Des Moines sports radio station KXNO heard a profane argument between broadcasters Marty Tirrell and Larry Cotlar on Friday morning that included Tirrell's use of the "F-word" at least a dozen times.

The argument -- apparently over media credentials used during last week's Iowa high school boys' basketball tournament -- took place just moments before the beginning of an NCAA basketball preview show.

The Reigster has much more on the backstory. Read it here.
