DENVER - KHOW Radio show host Peter Boyles has been fired by the station following a "heated physical exchange" with his producer, the 9Wants to Know investigators have confirmed.
"Peter Boyles is no longer with the company," Dan Mandis, KHOW Program Director said in an emailed statement Monday. "The KHOW morning show will continue to provide quality news talk programming and serve our loyal listeners."
Mandis said he could not provide any other information.
Boyles told investigative reporter Jace Larson he did not have a comment Monday night.
9NEWS previously reported how coworkers of Boyle observed red marks on producer Greg Hollenback's neck within minutes of the argument that occurred May 23.
The incident happened during the show's morning broadcast of the Peter Boyles Show.
Hollenback is known on-air as the "Sheik of Cherry Creek".
Boyles and Hollenback have worked together for about two decades. The sources wished to remain anonymous because they were not authorized to speak on the matter.
It's unclear exactly what led to the exchange.
Jon Caldera of the Independence Institute was the main fill-in host on Boyles' morning talk show radio since the incident.
Mandis said the show will have various fill-in hosts going forward.
