Jay is gone

This happened a month ago, but I didn't find out until now:

"Effective today Jay Marvin is no longer a member of the WLS on-air staff. For the past two-plus years, Jay has co-hosted the 9am-11am program. We wish Jay the best and thank him for his contribution. Eileen Byrne will continue to host the time slot."
--John F. Gallagher President and General Manager WLS-AM 890/WRDZ-AM 1300 Chicago IL 60601

There's more information about his departure in this article.

Jay Marvin was my favorite radio personality, even though I didn't agree with his opinions all the time. I even got a chance to meet him, and always thought I'd see him again around town. But he's leaving Chicago because he's gotten job offers at radio stations in other states.

What a bummer.
