Reality TV Show Costs Him Two Jobs
He went by the name "Crazy Ray" on the radio, and Crazy Ray was a self-proclaimed racist and woman hater. He worked at 100.7 WRXQ-FM in Coal City and seemingly wasn't in trouble at his radio station, despite his "character" talking like that on the radio.
It wasn't until a CNBC show came to profile his day job, and broadcast some of Ray's views nationwide that his station got rid of him. It also cost him his day job.
