|PED Comments Cost Jack Clark, Co-Host Jobs
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Former St. Louis Cardinals star Jack Clark is out of his sports talk radio job, and so is his co-host, after Clark's on-air comments alleging that Albert Pujols took performance-enhancing drugs.
Clark said on the air on WGNU Radio in St. Louis that Pujols' former trainer told him 10 years ago that he injected PEDs into Pujols.
Pujols responded with a strong denial on Friday night and said he planned to take legal action against Clark and his employers.
Early Saturday, the company that owns the show, insideSTL Enterprises LLC, said in a statement that the show hosted by Clark and Kevin Slaten has been cancelled.
A telephone listing for Clark could not be found. Slaten says he plans to sue the radio station, insideSTL and its owner.
