Author:

myTalk 107.1 morning radio co-host Ian Punnett is leaving the show, he announced on the air on Tuesday. He and his wife host the "Ian and Margery Show."

Punnett battles tinnitus, which results in a constant buzzing in his ears and headaches. He cut back his hours in August, but now plans to leave for good, after a decade with the station, the Pioneer Press reports.

His last day will be Dec. 21.

Fans posted lots of encouraging words for Punnett after the station posted this on its Facebook page:

"This morning myTalk 107.1's Ian Punnett announced that he would be leaving regular hosting duties on the station as a result of his ongoing battle with tinnitus. His doctor has advised him to pull away from radio and its constant audio assault and focus on the therapies that will benefit him most. We plan to have Margery remain with the station and will announce a new line-up very soon."
