More on Nestor Aparicio at the Super Bowl

My Baltimore Sun colleague Jamison Hensley caught up with Nestor Aparicio in Tampa and got his version of the confrontation earlier today between the WNST owner and Dallas radio personality Gordon Keith.

Aparicio said Keith came to WNST's spot on Radio Row and literally stuck his microphone in Aparicio's face as well as got face-to-face with him. Aparicio said he tried to walk away four times but Keith wouldn't leave him alone. Finally, he shoved Keith. Police later took a statement from Aparicio, he said.

"It's been 12 years of stalking," Aparicio told Hensley.

As for allegations of an anti-Semitic outburst from him in 2008, Aparicio said: "Last year, they crossed the line. It was a blatant lie."

A bit earlier today, I allowed a couple of comments about Aparicio to be posted on the previous blog entry. After rethinking it, I removed them. I'm not a big fan of his broadcasting style, but I have known Aparicio since I came to The Sun in 1985 and he was an editorial assistant for The Evening Sun and have dealt with him off and on ever since. I am Jewish, and I've never heard anything anti-Semitic from him.

As for Keith, I'd never heard anything from his show until today's audio clip (

), which is kind of boring, actually, except for the confrontation and the sophomoric "guy talk" about Lesley Visser.
