Dave Andelman Steps Down as CEO of Phantom Gourmet

The head of a popular local food show has resigned.

According to a Facebook post, Dave Andelman of the Phantom Gourmet is stepping down from his position as CEO, while also resigning from the Mendon Twin Drive-In. The post says that he will not be on any future episodes of the television show and will no longer be involved in its day-to-day operations. Dan Andelman, who has been the host of the television show, will now be the CEO of the Phantom Gourmet.

The resignation of Andelman comes on the heels of  a series of controversial comments he made on Facebook concerning the Black Lives Matter protests, which led to WBZ putting the Phantom Gourmet show on hiatus.

This is a developing story, so stay tuned for more updates.
