I cannot beleive what I heard on John Stanley’s show about 45 minutes ago. 2UE are moving George Moore and Paul B. Kidd to weekend mornings.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, they have completely dumped the entire weekend schedule and made up a new one.
It would appear that the new schedule has dumped their gardening show, the other weekend “specialty” shows like their real estate show, the psychic show and whatever else they had. Murray Olds is gone, so is Stuart Bocking. Coming in to the new lineup, Mike Williams has taken over weekend nights, and Glen Wheeler has taken weekend afternoons.
The new schedule is the same on Saturday and Sunday and is as follows (according to the 2UE website)
- Midnight-6am: George Gibson
- 6am-Midday: George Moore & Paul B. Kidd
- Midday-6pm: Glen Wheeler
- 6pm-Midnight: Mike Williams
The Southern Cross Syndication website doesn’t seem to have much, if any information on this bizarre shakeup, the only change I can see on there is that George Moore and Paul B. Kidd have disappeared.
Why 2UE would make these sudden changes to programs that work and rate fairly well is beyond me…do 2UE management have some loose marbles doing the rounds?
I suppose the even more important question is how are the network stations going to handle this change. A lot of stations take the 2UE garden show, which has naturally disappeared, maybe 2CC should syndicate David Young….
