Former radio host Dubay reveals family secret

Author:

Former – and prospective – Minnesota sports radio host Jeff Dubay in a new interview with Minneapolis-St. Paul Magazine offers a revealing detail about his life before it went into a downward spiral into drug addiction: His wife and brother had an affair.

"They’re still together and they have a kid," the former KFAN personality tells the magazine. "We can go on the record, but let me make this clear: It was not the cause of my addiction. The cause of my addiction was bad decisions. My addiction is my responsibility."

Since kicking his crack cocaine addiction in March 2011, Dubay has spoken publicly before, including to WCCO Radio in July, in which he spoke of a "difficult divorce." He also talked to KARE 11 about his long road back.

Dubay and Paul Allen had a show on KFAN for 10 years, but in 2008, he was arrested for having crack-cocaine, and he was eventually fired.

He says he is now clear-eyed and eager to get back to work, and this week he is trying out on the morning show on ESPN 1500AM.
