News has just been confirmed that the host of Between The Lines on 810 Sports, Kevin Kietzman, has agreed to part ways with the station. This comes following the national fallout regarding comments he made about Kansas City’s Chiefs head coach Andy Reid’s family life, notably the drug and legal issues surrounding his two sons, one of whom passed away from a heroin overdose.
The timing of Kietzman’s comments come at the tail end of an exhausting and dramatic offseason for the Chiefs that saw an entire overhaul of the defensive unit and the constant twists and turns of the Tyreek Hill investigation, which many believe to have largely been driven by the local media. In a bubble, he may have likely outlasted the outcry, but as is often the case his words were the straw to break the back of the camel that is the Chiefs fan base.
Its never pleasant to see someone lose their job, regardless of the circumstances. Arrowhead Guys understands the frustration and pain caused by his words and agree that removing him from the air was the correct decision. We wish him well in his future endeavors.
We will update this post if new information becomes available.
