Star goes Wild, gets Buc'd

UPDATE 5/12/06: Hip-Hop Radio D.J. "Star" Arrested... [AL BAKER, NY Times]

Original post:
Clear Channel, which owns Power 105, announces:
"As of late this afternoon, (Star / Troi Torain) is no longer with Power 105.1 or Clear Channel Radio. We sincerely apologize to those who may have been offended by his remarks."

On Friday, Star (of the Star & Buc Wild Morning Show) appeared to insult the wife of Hot 97's DJ Envy, & allegedly threatened the couple's 4-year-old daughter with explicit, sexual comments.

Full story from NBC.

Ironically (right?), the day before these on-air comments were made, a pro-Star article in the NY Daily News stated "In the world of radio, Star's position is solid."
