Former KFAN host Jeff Dubay, who used to be Paul Allen's morning show partner, is working with Judd Zulgad this week on AM1500. Many people think the week is an audition for future work at the station, which has recently juggled its lineup.
He did a Q-and-A with Steve Marsh of Mpls St. Paul magazine about his addiction and recovery, which knocked him off the air a few years back and made his name an unfortunate part of police stories as opposed to being part of the local sports scene.
Dubay told Marsh that the last time he smoked crack was 20 months ago: "If I took crack right now, I wouldn’t feel good for a second. I would have a stomachache instantly, I’d gag, I’d be scared to death, I’d be under that table thinking that somebody is coming to get me. I mean, there literally wouldn’t be 10 seconds of enjoyment"

After the outcry over a University of North Dakota committee voting to eliminate continuing to play without a nickname, the school's president said he'll reconsider adding that option when a vote is taken.
