Trenni Kusnierek went on a rant Friday morning on Kirk and Callahan about Colin Cowherd’s treatment of women in sports media, mainly in reaction to his response to Kristine Leahy confronting Lavar Ball this week.

“My theory’s always been on this is that we should give women opportunities,” Cowherd said. “When I left my former employer … and I was listening to all the radio out there and it was all guys. And I thought, you know, I finally have real power in this business. And the power is going to be to change radio.”

Trenni took issue with this statement and called him out on it.

Kusnierek called Cowherd a “lying sack of crap” because ESPN once hired Jen Lada, a friend of Trenni’s, to work on a show with Cowherd, but he ditched the show and moved to Los Angeles at the last minute.

“So don’t talk about how Fox has given you, has just given me this freedom to just lift women up from the bottom dredges of media,” Trenni said. “Screw you, you pretentious a-hole.”

“It’s so infuriating,” Trenni went on. “If I saw him right now I might punch him in the face.”
