Florida International University Hires Noted Sociologist Rick Sanchez

The AP reported — and a tanned portrait, complete with dapper summer hat, on the Florida International University sports site confirms — that former CNN anchor Rick Sanchez has been hired to be the radio voice of the FIU Golden Panthers football team. Sanchez has two sons at FIU.

Sanchez was fired by CNN last year after he went on satellite radio, complained that Jon Stewart was a "bigot" for making fun of his constant on-air bungling, and suggested that Stewart was part of the Jewish cabal that controls the media.


The president of Florida International, Mark Rosenberg, is a member of Temple Menorah in Miami Beach, FIU's website reports, and is "active with the Jewish Federation of Greater Miami," holding a seat on the board of directors of its Holocaust memorial. Rosenberg has a "tight relationship" with Sanchez, according to the Miami Herald.
