“To everyone asking… Yes, it is true that I am resigning from @magic899. Big decision and bigger things ahead. Will talk more about it soon,” he wrote, then he captioned his post, “End of an era #ygOUT.”

His announcement shocked many listeners of the popular radio talk show “Boys Night Out,” which he co-hosts alongside Tony Toni and Slick Rick, with Gino Quillamor, Jojo the Love Survivor, and DJ Suzy.

Why did Sam YG leave?

In a separate Instagram post, Sam YG clarified his decision to resign from the radio station and program, “Just to be clear. Walang nag-away. Walang magkagalit.”

He added, “I believe I’ve given my all these past 17 years, and I will forever be grateful for all the lessons I’ve learned and the lives I’ve touched.”

The radio and TV personality emphasized that “Boys Night Out” would continue “as usual” and believed that the show would be in “great hands” with his co-hosts.

Contrary to speculations, which could’ve stemmed from his recent travels, he also clarified that he’s not leaving the country.“I’m not leaving the country, and I’ll still be hosting corporate/TV shows, events, weddings, and everything in between. PS: Wag lang children’s parties,” he quipped.

What’s next for Sam YG?

Without going into details, Sam mentioned that he’s excited about what’s ahead for him despite being pained by his departure from the famous show. 

He revealed that he’ll stay until November and even jokingly denied joining Vivamax.

“Growth is often uncomfortable, messy, and full of feelings you weren’t expecting. But it’s necessary,” he ended.

Meanwhile, DJ Suzy and Slick Rick sent their well wishes to Sam through social media posts.

“He’ll be on til November but I’ll save that post til that day comes. But for now, let’s just sit back and enjoy the time we got left on air. That doesn’t mean you’ll never see us as a group again, maybe you’ll catch us hosting as a group, doing things online and much much more!” Slick Rick wrote.

“LET’S MAKE HIS LAST FEW WEEKS COUNT!” DJ Suzy captioned in her post.

Sam, whose real name is Samir Gogna, joined “Boys Night Out” in 2007 following the departure of the program’s original co-host, King DJ Logan. He also previously co-hosted “Eat Bulaga!” from 2009 to 2016.
