News

CHICAGO — Longtime Chicago radio personality Eric Ferguson is leaving the morning show on WTMX-FM after a 25-year tenure amid allegations of sexual misconduct and abusive behavior towards female co-workers.

Ferguson, who has hosted the morning show since 1996, has been off the air since late September and has categorically denied the allegations against him, labeling them as a “smear campaign.”

In a statement issued Friday, Ferguson said that returning to the air would be an “unfair distraction” to his colleagues.

Hubbard Radio, the owner of WTMX-FM, has not issued a statement.
