Russell Brand Resigns Position As On-Air Host

Russell Brand has resigned from his position as an on-air BBC radio host as complaints have flooded in and the BBC, Ofcom, and government officials have all expressed concern over the calls he and Jonathan Ross made to Fawlty Towers actor Andrew Sachs. Mr. Brand has already apologized for the calls and says he takes "complete responsibility for the incident." Mr. Brand may be familiar to American TV audiences, if at all, as host of the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards.
