Audio: 790 The Zone's offensive Steve Gleason bit

106.1 The Ticket in New Orleans has obtained and uploaded the audio from 790 The Zone in Atlanta's ill-advised Steve Gleason bit from Monday morning. We have embedded the audio for you below.

The hosts of the segment appear to realize immediately that the bit was a terrible idea, but they continue with it for several minutes, forcing laughter and poking fun at ALS. It is certainly a tough listen regardless of your comedy tastes.

The station has already apologized for the bit, which mocked the former Saints player and has sparked outrage nationwide. You can follow the entire saga of the sketch and its fallout by visiting our StoryStream.

Although the hosts of the morning show on 790 The Zone have been suspended in response to the bit (within hours of the show's airing), many fans and media personalities are calling for a boycott of the station, including Alex Marvez of FOX Sports.
