ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WKBW) — Two talk show hosts in Rochester have been fired after using a racial slur live on-air.

During their daily talk show on 95.1FM, the "Kimberly and Beck" team said, quote, "the N-word," while discussing how people behaved during the weekend protests in Rochester.

They did not say the word itself.

The station's parent company, iHeartMedia, promptly fired them.
