HERRIN, Ill. - The man behind HerrinFesta Italiana is now out of a job.

The festival's committee members and Chamber of Commerce eliminated executive director Jim Gentile's position.

Gentile has been a part of HerrinFesta for more that two decades.

HerrinFesta president Chris Traponi said the organization of the festival was being restructured for two years and Gentile was involved in that process.

Gentile had no comment.
