Dave and Chuck the Freak, 89X, Fired over Operation Dark Stall?
Dave Hunter, Chuck the Freak and Lisa Way, Morning X talk jocks from CIMX-FM (88.7, 89X) may have been fired over their latest on air prank called 'Operation Dark Stall' as their show was pulled off the air Thursday morning, but on one seems to know what's happening and no one is talking.
The three hosts started this segment on Monday, when Chuck the Freak talked about how he found an unidentified employee in an employee restroom, in the complete darkness. What followed was a microphone investigation and callers speculating about what someone would be doing in a dark bathroom by themselves.
The trio then called other 89X personalities and employees live on the air and asked them if it was them and what they could be doing., all live on the air. The employee who was the target however, did not take too kindly to the incident and complained to the management team.
A station boss reportedly then issued a memo telling the "Morning X" team to cease discussing the incident immediately or face disciplinary action. Team members then proceeded to read the memo on the air. Perhaps that wasn't the best job-preserving move, but it generated dozens of calls and e-mails and filled up plenty of entertaining air time.
On Thursday morning, it was announced that the morning show would not be live that day, and no one at the station would comment on the incident.
At this point, it is not known if any of the trio were fired or what has happened, but fans are asking for the show to be brought back.
