Mike Williams, the poor sod who had to put up with psychic Sharina for three hours every Sunday, has left 2UE.
His replacement is not yet known, although I am hoping that Murray Olds gets a permanent shift out of this…not that I would want him to have to put up with Sharina, but I’m sure he would enjoy the other nine hours of Mike’s shift.
Update 5:08pm: Thanks to regular contributor Albona, who seems to read the 2UE website more carefully than me, we now know that Dale Sinden and Simon Foster, who until last weekend had an hour and a bit segment on John Kerr’s show, now have their own “At The Movies” program from 6pm-8pm on Sundays. Unfortunately Sharina has an extra hour and will be heard from 8pm-Midnight on Sundays. The Saturday night host is still unconfirmed. End Update
Update 12:34am 17 February 2007: Looks like Spencer Kirk is taking back his old job of dealing with Sharina. End Update
Update 5:00pm 17 February 2007: Radioinfo’s Ian McRae is reporting that Mike left over a pay dispute. Mike wanted more (and who can blame him…I’d want more if I had to listen to Sharina’s drivel), but Southern Cross Broadcasting continued their cost cutting. End Update
