Brady made his weekly appearance on WEEI radio’s Kirk and Callahan show as scheduled but he made it clear that he is not happy with the station. He cut the interview short and left the window open to re-evaluate his weekly appearances on the station.
Reason why? On Thursday, a WEEI host Alex Reimer commented on Tom vs Time documentary which is airing on Facebook Watch and called Vivian Brady, Tom’s 5 year old daughter (who appeared on the beginning of the first episode of the documentary), “An Annoying Little Pissant”, given a chance to apologize on his show after a caller asked him to, he didn’t take the opportunity to do so. He knew what he was saying and he meant it.
Tom Brady cuts his weekly interview short on WEEI, saying he was disappointed to hear of news that host Alex Reimer made a disparaging remark about his daughter when discussing the "Tom vs. Time" documentary. Brady said he is evaluating if he wants to be on the show again.

Brady has every right to be upset at the station. You want to criticize Brady over the documentary go ahead but his daughter? Really? So disrespectful. What was Alex Reimer thinking. Not only what he said was not funny but also completely false. She’s an innocent 5 year old. What’s so annoying about her?
“Well, I think that — I’ve tried to come on this show for many years and have showed you guys a lot of respect,” Brady said Monday morning on WEEI. “I’ve always tried to come on and do a good job for you guys, so it’s very disappointing when you hear that, certainly. But my daughter or any child, they certainly don’t deserve that.”
WEEI host Kirk Minihane promptly apologized to Brady.
“I’ll obviously evaluate whether I want to come on this show again, so I really don’t have much to say this morning,” Brady said. “So, maybe I’ll speak with you guys some other time.”
WEEI producers find themselves either firing Reimer or potentially losing Brady’s weekly interviews. What’s taking them so long? It’s a no brainer. Fire Reimer and while you’re at it, get him out of New England. He doesn’t add anything of substance to the station anyway.
