If there is one thing which I can give Fairfax a lot of credit for in the time since they bought 2UE et al, it’s being very efficient when it comes to advising of format and presenter changes to networked programming.
The Christmas/New Year schedule has been confirmed:
Jim Ball will be taking all of December and a third of January off. John Kerr will be taking his place. No word yet on who will be taking over the weekend version of New Day Australia as yet, although Clinton Maynard would probably be a fair guess, unless he is also taking time off. Perhaps a return to air for Glenn Wheeler who has been lurking around the off-air wings of 2UE of late?
Somebody who I think really should be given a permanent shift, Steve Liebmann, will be filling in for Steve Price on the morning show from the 15th of December until the 9th of January inclusive.
The Buzzard, Murray Olds, will be filling in for Tim Webster on the afternoon show during the same period.
Sadly I’m going to have to skip the night show during this period though. There is no way known that I can stomach A Current Affair’s Ben Fordham. It’s bad enough hearing him during Steve Price’s show.
No word on the weekend schedule as yet, although it would be good to hear Bill Woods and Deborah Knight paired up again. And one does have to wonder how long Mike Munro will stay in retirement…I’d love to hear him on talk radio.
