Recall that the reason for this departure is that Mr. Fillion rejected the offer renewal of his agreement, which ended in August, offered to him by the radio station owned by RNC Media.
“For a few months, I have informed RNC of the plans I had in mind for my future and RNC did not comply with my requests and my conditions and chose not to offer me a new contract. I consider that at this stage of my career, I have the privilege of knowing what I am worth and I deserve to be able to choose the conditions that suit me and that is what I have decided to do. -he commented in a short audio document published on his social networks on April 14.
Faced with legal proceedings and numerous complaints to the CRTC, Jeff Fillion left CHOI FM for the first time in 2005. However, he returned to it in 2016 after a two-year stint at Énergie 98.9 that ended in controversy.
