Steve Price to take over the 2UE Morning Show, Tim Webster to Afternoons, John Stanley to Drive

December 15th, 2007 at 01:59pm

I’ve suspected it for a while because, quite frankly, who else could 2UE offer the morning show to if they wanted a serious and “hard hitting” newstalk program. According to The Daily Telegraph, Steve Price will be taking over the 9am to midday slot next year.

The Daily Telegraph also confirms my fears, namely that Tim Webster will be taking over the afternoon show, and John Stanley will move to Drive, effectively removing John Stanley from the airwaves in Canberra. I’m very happy that Steve Price will be a permanent fixture of the Canberra airwaves, but I will miss John Stanley.

I like Tim Webster, but I do have to wonder if his arrival on the afternoon show will herald the end of the mostly fun and frivolous format of John Stanley’s afternoon show, and its replacement with a more serious news based show.

These are big changes, and will be interesting to see how the hosts perform in their new shows.
