89x Dave and Chuck the Freak pulled off the Air..


89x Dave and Chuck the Freak pulled off the Air

FYI,

For the last few days, hosts Dave Hunter, Chuck the Freak and Lisa Way have been involved in something called "Operation Dark Stall," a microphone-driven "investigation" that began Monday after Chuck said he found an unidentified station employee lurking in an employee restroom -- where it was completely dark.

On Tuesday's show, Chuck gave an eyewitness account -- he said he took off after being startled by the ominous shadowy figure -- and then the jocks (and callers) followed up with humorous speculation about what one might do in the dark loo.

They also called other 89X personalities and station employees and questioned them on the air, employing, of course, their usual brand of sarcasm. But the employee who was the target of their fun apparently didn't take too kindly to the ongoing grilling and complained to management.

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. The possibility of the "Morning X" team getting fired over the incident suddenly became a hot topic.

The plot thickened Thursday when a member of the "Morning X" team told Names & Faces that the show would not be live today. Others at the station wouldn't comment, and a call to general manager Eric Proksch didn't turn up any info. He is reported to be out of the office until Monday.

If anyone is to get disciplined or fired should be the guy in the restroom, doing who knows what in the dark.

Support the Morning X Team and light managements phones up.
