G.R. Anderson out at MyTalk107.1

Former City Pages and MinnPost journalist G.R. Anderson, one of the boys on MyTalk 107.1’s “Colleen and the Boys,” is no longer with the station, general manager Dan Seeman confirms, adding no other details.

Anderson isn’t saying much, either. Here’s what he emailed me:

“I have no comment as to why. I will say that working for the Hubbard extended family — and especially Ginny [Hubbard Morris], Dan and Amy — was the best bunch of folk I’ve ever worked for, and that Colleen and Reuvers are amazingly talented people, generous co-workers and good friends. I never expected to be in radio, so by that standard, it’s been a great, fun run. I was fortunate to be a part of the company and the station and the great people I met there.”

In any event, there are a lot of distraught Facebook fans, including one lamenting the loss of her 10 a.m.-1 p.m. “radio boyfriend.”

Also, the “Colleen and the Boys” web page looks kinda weird right now with only one “boy” (Chris Reuvers) remaining.

    So sad to see this news. G. R. has been a favorite of mine at a station that frankly has been making some poor choices lately.
    I can only hope that G.R. is onto bigger and better things that FM107 or mytalk or whatever name they give themselves currently can support, endorse and give publicity to. The loss of Kevyn was hard enough, and now you take away one of the members of the funniest team on radio? Poor choice. I’d forgo the crappy “nutrition” shows as well as the awful Gayle King show and keep a local, intelligent, relevant host such as G.R.
    FM107, I’ve listened to you since the day you hit the air, and I am SO disappointed in you right now…

    I have been a long time listener of this station ( about 6 years ) and wasnt really able to settle into a show until colleen and the boys. It is a huge upset for me and many others to hear that G.R. is no longer with the station. Hopfully in time the reason he left or was asked to leave will come to light.
