Former Brimfield Township Police Chief David Oliver’s radio show on WNIR has officially been canceled.

Bill Klaus, CEO of the station, released a statement Thursday saying, “The weekend program ‘Breaking Good with Chief Oliver’ on WNIR has been discontinued. A variety of programs from the Talk Radio Network will air from 7 to 10 p.m. while we restructure our Saturday and Sunday night program line-up.”

Oliver’s show, which had been on the air since July 2014, was placed on hiatus Jan. 15, as the result of a two-week suspension from the Brimfield Police Department following claims of gender discrimination.

On Jan. 16, Oliver announced his retirement on the department’s Facebook page, which he made famous. Acting chief Chris Adkins has since disabled the page.
