FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — An Arkansas radio personality who wore a Florida Gators hat to an Arkansas Hogs news conference says she's been fired.

Renee Gork announced on Twitter Monday that she had been fired by KAKS, a northwest Arkansas radio station that calls itself Hog Sports Radio.

Gork had worn a Gator hat Saturday to a news conference with Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino.

Petrino's team lost to the Gators last season 23-20 at Florida. He mentioned Gork's hat after answering a question she asked.

Petrino said, "And that will be the last question I answer with that hat on."

Gork is a Florida graduate.

KAKS general manager Dan Storrs confirmed that Gork was no longer working for the station but declined to comment further.
