As a protective parent, he also tweeted that he will not let his son join football because it is a matter of high risk and thinks that it's not worth it.
Kirk, age 44, is having a very hard time in recent years. He had to lose both of his parents due to cancer last year. His father lost the battle with Multiple Myeloma, and his mother had to fight with Pancreatic Cancer.
The biggest tragedy a son could probably have is to lose his parents one after another in a very short interval. He was very close to them and was very hard for him to bear with this pain.
Along with the loss of his parents, he also had to go through conflicts with the management of his show. These downturns in his life resulted in depression, and suicidal thoughts ruled his mind. He was ready to give up on his life, and with that thought, he was in Wedgemere train station prepared to jump in front of a train.
“Suicide” was the only thing on his mind; everyone in his family was happy except him. He tried hard to get the burden out of his mind and pulled himself to the nearest hospital. He took help of many doctors and nurses to get out the situation.
How Much Is Kirk's Net Worth?
Kirk accumulates his net worth working as a host for WEEI. According to sources, the average salary at WEEI is $58K, to be more precise the average salary of a radio host in America is $44,066 annually. He has summoned a decent amount of fortune as a sarcastic and acerbic host.
He entered the radio station as a WEEI’s weekend host and ended up hosting many programs later on in 2009. He also worked as the “third man” in John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. The host also works as a weekly columnist for WEEI.com.
Kirk has been on the news for his straightforward comments. He says that he tries to talk as casually on air as he talks off the air. He believes that this is what makes him different from other radio people. But for some people, it is difficult to digest his casualness.
Last month, he was absent from the show. He says it is because of his mental health and needs some time to think about his conflict with the management.
