Unhappy 89x Dave and chuck no longer

https://www.facebook.com/daveandchuckthefreakfans

Unfortunately we can’t go into detail, but as of today the Dave and Chuck “the Freak” show is no longer a part of the 89X line up.
We greatly enjoyed our time at 89X for over a decade, made some great friends, and are so thankful we got to be a part of your lives every morning.
We have the best listeners in the world, and you guys entertained us as much as we entertained you.
Stay in touch with us here on our facebook page, or at

I liked 89x when they played a lot of alternative music but now they are too mainstream.

From what I understand they quit. I'd like to hear the reason behind it all.

I haven't really been able to listen to them since I started my new job 2 months ago. I loved their show tho.

When I read the FB post it had 1500 comments and was blowing up as I read. Almost all said they would no longer listen to 89x.

I started listening when I was in HS many many years ago because their programming was what I liked. Since that has changed and Dave and chuck are gone I doubt I will anymore.

Over the last 1-2 years there seemed to be a lot of tension between them and the station. Guess something finally gave way.

Time Warp with Christina on Sunday mornings is, IMO, the best program on 89x.

Time Warp and Morning Show are the only tolerable segments on 89X, they have become way too mainstream, overplaying the same 10 songs. Dave and Chuck(and Lisa Way) will be picked up very soon. We can only hope it's by a local station.

Damn, that sucks. I remember a few years ago when they were off the air for almost an entire month. I hope Lisa Way goes with them as well. It was one of the main reasons i didn't dread a 45 minute drive into the shitty every morning.

I've read several reports that they are going to another station. No one is saying where yet. Only that they were offered a deal that 89x couldn't match.

Eric Proksch, vice president/general manager of Bell Media Radio Windsor Detroit, the company that owns 89X, said today that the duo decided to leave the station for another gig. He said confidentiality agreements prevented him from learning where the pair is heading. "They've accepted a job offer from another radio station," Proksch said. "We're disappointed. That's the radio business."
