Longtime FREE BEER AND HOT WINGS cast member ERIC ZANE has parted company with the syndicated morning show.
In a post on the show's website, the remaining members share, "The time has finally come for us to address the extended absence of ERIC ZANE. We can now confirm that ZANE is no longer a part of the FREE BEER AND HOT WINGS SHOW. Our parent company and he have severed ties which means that it is impossible for us to carry on with him. We had some truly great times together and hoped that it would stay that way until the end, however we’ve been in this game a long time and that’s often the nature of the business. He is still our friend and brother and always will be.
"Details are still being worked out between all parties involved which means as of now, we quite literally are not at liberty to give specific details beyond confirmation of his departure. This is not a scenario we ever hoped we'd find ourselves in and obviously didn’t ask for, but here we are. This has been incredibly difficult and weird for ALL involved and we appreciate your understanding. Right now, we ask that you let us handle this like the internal family issue it is. We are all real people with real emotions dealing with real things that affect us all directly. Finger pointing, blame, attacks or misguided speculation are not helpful.
"So that’s it. For now. The FREE BEER AND HOT WINGS SHOW goes on. We’ll tell you more when we can...unless we can't. Forward we go. We hope you come with us. We can’t do it without you."
