STORY UPDATE 3PM: 89x has reportedly closed their American office, according to The Detroit News. It's also noted that not only Cal Cagno and Gillian Reilly have been axed, but also Reed Petitpren and Mark McKenzie, as well as promotions and sales.
Just after Jay Hudson resigns 8 months ago at 89x, another big name is off the roster. Today, the Cal & Co. page announced that Cal Cagno and Gillian are no longer a part of the 89x team. There is no other further explanation as of yet, and the only information comes from the Cal & Co. Facebook page from Cal & Gillian, and a tweet from Cal Cagno, which by the tone sounds like it wasn't his choice to go.
I no longer work at 89X. After 18 years..it's over. I hope to be back on the air soon but if not...thanks to the listeners for a great run— Cal Cagno (@Cagno) March 30, 2017
