On Wednesday evening, Primedia Broadcasting released a statement to say that DJ Fresh and Euphonik would be released from their contracts…
Their last shows on 947 were aired on 15th January and 10 January 2021 respectively.
The decision was, according to the broadcaster, made "after careful consideration of the events of the last few weeks."
"This decision does not reflect a view on the veracity of any allegations against either Euphonik or Fresh. Rather it prioritises Primedia Broadcasting's business imperatives. We believe that this decision is in the best interest of our company and our various stakeholders," says Geraint Crwys-Williams, Interim CEO of Primedia Broadcasting.

The pair responded to Primedia's statement by releasing a statement of their own, saying that they would be returning to all public engagements.
"After extensive consultation, legal and otherwise, we have concluded that it is in our best interests to resume all of our public engagements," said the statement.
"We look forward to our names being cleared. Unfortunately, we can't find common ground with Primedia and have agreed a release from our obligations to the broadcaster, with immediate effect. Thank you to Primedia for all the great broadcasting opportunities and moments."
