BOSTON (CBS) –WEEI morning drive host Gerry Callahan has left the radio station after more than two decades on its airwaves.

Callahan broke the news on Twitter, saying that he did his last show on WEEI Friday morning.

“Thanks to all who listened. Unfortunately, this ain’t a movie,” Callahan tweeted. “Sometimes the bad guys win.”

Parent company Entercom confirmed the news.

“Callahan has been a dominant force and a big part of WEEI over the years,” Entercom said in a statement. “While it is now time for a new chapter, we thank him for his many contributions and the indelible mark he has made at WEEI, including his tireless work on behalf of Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund.”

The Boston Globe reported this week that rival sports talk station 98.5 The Sports Hub and its morning show finished well ahead of WEEI’s “Mut and Callahan” in the ratings.

Morning co-host Mike “Mut” Mutnansky will return to hosting evenings on WEEI.

Entercom said Greg Hill from sister station WAAF’s “Greg Hill Morning Show” will take over the morning drive slot.

    Hey, Mr. Giant Forehead: you lost the moral high ground when you agreed to co-host with that hateful d-bag Kirk Minihane. You’ve gotten exactly what you deserve.

    show was great when it was D/C.
    when the show went to three it lost something.
    why were you behind 98.5.?
    when the station protected reamer after that horrible comment and
    his open gayness.
    I not against gays,
    one of favorite is steve buckley.
    bye weei . hello 98.5

  5. Kevin Macdonald says:

    I’m done with eei. The only reason I could stomach the show after Reamer came on board was Jerry.
