Paul Steinbach Headshot

A public address announcer for Newkirk (Okla.) Public Schools was removed after calling names in the starting lineup for Crooked Oak "disgusting" into his open mic before a Class 3A girls' basketball game.

The announcer, who as of this writing had not been identified in the media, prefaced his introduction of Crooked Oak players by saying, "Now, their names are pretty disgusting, but I'm gonna try to call them out."

Reaction was immediate. "What did he just say?" a spectator can be heard asking. "No, he didn't say that."
