Sam Mayes and Cara Rice fired after leaked audio reveals racist, disparaging jokes about Native Americans…

On Thanksgiving night, while you were probably about to eat another turkey sandwich, someone from an anonymous email account blasted the local OKC news networks with a five-year-old audio clip of a conversation between The Franchise's Sam Mayes, and his at-the-time cohost, Magic 104 morning DJ Cara Rice.


In the clip, (primarily) Cara and Sam are heard making some disparaging and racist "jokes" about Native Americans during a station commercial break, and then – in an epic and ironic case of foreshadowing – joking about how the conversation will probably get them fired someday.


As is the way in this town, the email and audio eventually found their way to the Ogle Mole in-box. By the time I shared it on Twitter on Friday afternoon, Tyler Media – which owns The Franchise and Magic 104 – had already fired Sam and Cara.


Here's the audio:
