Disgraced Dj Replaced
LATEST: Disgraced US radio DJ TROI TORAIN has been replaced after making on-air racial and sexual comments about a rival DJ's wife and four-year-old daughter. BIG TIGGER and EGYPT's LIVE WITH TIGGER + EGYPT will replace THE STAR + BUCWILD SHOW on New York City's Power 105.1. Big Tigger, who quit Power 105.1 in 2003 following a contract dispute, tells AllHipHop.com, "I am looking forward to the opportunity to do what I do in mornings. "Although the opportunity comes due to unfortunate circumstances, Egypt and I plan to make the most of it. I got nothing for respect for Star's talents and abilities and I hope he is able to rebound and get it popping again soon." Torain was fired and subsequently charged with endangering the welfare of a child after threatening to sexually abuse rival DJ ENVY's four-year-old daughter and offering $500 (GBP280) for details about where she went to school. He was sacked last week (11MAY06).
