Abe Kanan 95.5 Exit

The Angi Taylor Show executive producer and co-host Abe Kanan has quit the program due to problems with contracts on WCHI-FM, also known as Rock 95.5 Chicago.

Many radio personalities have been going through significant changes at a time when networks are losing money, making layoffs, and adding new shows. While other people have received pink slips, in other situations the talent has chosen to advance their careers elsewhere. As a result, it’s simple for people to assume that the status of the industry is to blame when news of well-known radio personalities departing their networks makes headlines.

But many contract disputes are the result of disagreements over the “green,” or money. After The Angi Taylor Show co-host and executive producer Abe of Chicago’s 95.5 radio station wished the program farewell, fans demanded information about her leaving. This is the 4-1-1.

Abe of Rock 95.5 Chicago, who spent three years as an executive producer and co-host, gave his reasons for leaving The Angi Taylor Show in an Instagram post on July 25, 2023. “After negotiating with Rock 95.5, we could not come to an agreement on a new contract,” Abe said in his statement online. “I loved every minute of working at this station and with Angi. Angi is the best. There are too many people to mention, but I worked with many wonderful people. Our listeners are amazing. Thanks for spending your mornings with me for the past three years. Thank you to everyone. My compliments.”

Abe Kanan New Job

While Abe Kanan was quite transparent about his intention to leave 95.5 in his social media post, he withheld information regarding his plans for the future of his radio career. So, the new job details are not public yet. Fans who have been curious about his future will probably not have to wait long for him to secure another position.

After all, according to Radio Insight, Abe has a very impressive background that includes working at WLUP Chicago, WIIL Kenosha WI, and WDYL Richmond in addition to anchoring Howard 101 on SiriusXM. In addition, from 2019 to 2020, Abe did morning shifts at Cumulus Media Rock X93.9, WNDX Indianapolis, and later discovered he had been fired from WKQX Chicago due to COVID-19 cuts.
