John Ramsey & Mike Rutherford apologize for accusing PR firm of leaking UofL scandal news to Matt Jones

Remember when the UofL scandal news broke in February and John Ramsey (aka Captain Suntan) accused a Louisville PR firm of leaking news to Matt? The PR firm, RunSwitch LLC, sued Ramsey and his cohost Mike Rutherford for defamation in March, and this afternoon, the two apologized for the matter on air:

Rutherford:“I’d like to take a moment to revisit a matter we discussed on February 16 regarding the PR firm RunSwitch. In response to an inquiry on Twitter that day about a rumor that RunSwitch had something to do with a leak of the UofL postseason suspension news to a Lexington radio host, we made some comments. In retrospect, we should not have done that.”

Ramsey: “As it turns out, after the show, RunSwitch contacted us and adamantly denied being the leak. The Lexington radio host stated that while he had a total of three moles on the story, RunSwitch was not one of them. We regret and apologize for any role we might have played in repeating rumors about RunSwitch PR and its owners Scott Jennings and Steve Bryant.”

The suit is still pending, but one would imagine this apology is part of a settlement. Here’s Jennings’ reaction on Twitter:

And the audio so you can hear it for yourself (the apology starts at the 1:23 mark):

    Can it become a thing that anytime someone recognizes John Ramsey on the street in Louisville they stop and salute him while calling him “Captain Suntan”?

    I don’t think any of the folks down at u of l consider it a scandal so it had to be hard to apologize. When you lay in dirt constantly you don’t consider yourself dirty.

    A friend of mine called Capt. ST a bottom feeder. I of course, corrected him. It’s not the bottom he feeds on, it’s the scrotum.

  6. Funny thing is, MJ is a Louisville talk show host (or at least was…has he moved to Lexington yet?).

    He really needs to see a doctor about his skin. That is not even close to normal or or natural. People shouldn’t be walking around looking like they just attempted their max bench press and their blood pressure is 200/140.
