Sean Savoy has come out gay after a Fox
Radio affiliate in Reno, Nevada canceled his public affairs program,
House of Savoy.
Savoy told gay website LGBTQNation.com
that the reason he was given for the cancellation of his one-year-old
show was an August 12 interview with Will Kolb, a Dallas-based gay
On the show, Savoy, an ordained
minister, commended Kolb for his gay rights advocacy. (A portion of
the interview is embedded on this page. Visit
our video library for more videos.)
“I have always appreciated the
variety of viewpoints expressed on my program. To think I could be
removed for having a conversation about the LGBT community in America
baffles me. I have conducted a variety of interviews with a wide
range of people over the past year, and yet this was the topic that
got my show canceled,” said
The incident prompted Savoy to publicly
announce that he is gay.
House of Savoy is currently
looking for a new home.
