Twin Cities Radio: Former Sports Talker Avoids Jail Time

Jeff Dubay
Former KFAN 100.3 FM radio sports host Jeff Dubay was convicted Thursday on an assault charge and sentenced to 120 days in jail, but with the option to serve via a treatment program.

Dubay pleaded guilty in December to third-degree assault stemming from an incident last summer in which he was accused of physically assaulting a woman.

His sentencing record indicates Dubay could avoid jail with the successful completion of a treatment program through Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge. Should he opt out of the program, Dubay would have to report to jail.

Dubay was further sentenced to five years' supervised probation.

He was sentenced in August 2016 to about six months in jail and 10 years' probation for methamphetamine possession. In that case, he was ordered to complete a drug treatment program.

He was fired from KFAN after a 2008 arrest for cocaine possession. Dubay returned to the airwaves on KSTP 1500 ESPN but was let go after a year in 2014 in a cost-cutting move.
