Congratulations to Capital Radio’s Duncan McCrea (Update: Spelling corrected, sorry Duncan) who yesterday had his first (as far as I can recall) hosting gig on 2CC. Duncan did what Kris Mckenzie would have done before he left, and filled in for Mike Welsh on the drive show. The show only went for an hour and was probably on par with the first hour of Peter Higgins on 2UE’s middawn program on Friday morning. Both of them are pretty much new to hosting talkback, and Peter was sounding pretty good by about the third hour, I wouldn’t be surprised if Duncan puts in an even better performance next time he fills in.

For those of you wondering, last time I checked Duncan was the local panel operator for the John Laws Morning Show, and occasionally works in the Capital Radio newsroom. He previously worked for the now defunct Radio2.

Over at FM 104.7, Sarah Robinson, part of the “Chris and Sarah for Breakfast” program, is leaving the station at the end of the show on May the 1st (Tuesday next week). Mason Edwards left the breakfast show at the end of last year for sister station NXFM in Newcastle, leaving Chris Welldon and Sarah behind. A replacement show will be announced shortly, and Chris will remain with the station.

    I turned the radio on yesterday afternoon and heard football on
    2CC, so I switched it off.

    Duncan was on after the ANZAC Day NRL match. He was on from 5pm-6pm.

    I was surprised to have a live show, on previous occasions 2CC have run a “Best of Mike Welsh” hour under those circumstances.

    Duncan was one of our guys at 2RDJ for a little while too.

    Pity he didn’t fill in for Mike Welsh before our interview Frankster…he could have come up as part of the chat about 2RDJ then.

    True, I had no idea he’d end up 2CC.
