If you are a radio personality and are attending a news conference, don't bring your Florida Gator gear. This is what happened to one reporter who attened a news conference with Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino. Someone should have told that to former KAKS radio personality Renee Gork.

Gork has been terminated by KAKS. In fact, Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino even commented about her headgear. Gork, who's a Florida graduate, says she grabbed the hat without thinking because it was raining. She has written an apology to the university and Petrino.

KAKS officials aren't commenting but general manager Dan Storrs confirms Gork is no longer working at the station. The station supports the Razorbacks 100 percent. People can lose their job over what hat they wear, even if it's raining.
