The former CNN anchor, fired after going on a controversial rant late last year, will become a football radio announcer for Florida International University.
NEW YORK - Former CNN anchor Rick Sanchez, who was fired last fall after calling The Daily Show host Jon Stewart a bigot and saying that Jewish people run the media, has a new job.
According to the Associated Press, Florida International University has hired the Miami native as a radio announcer for the new football season that kicks off this fall. He will serve as color analyst on WMCU-1080 AM alongside play-by-play announcer Tony Calatayud.
