Temporarily…although the rumours suggest otherwise.
Clive Robertson will be filling in for Stuart Bocking on 2UE’s evening show tonight, tomorrow and on Good Friday while Stuart fills in for John Stanley on the drive show. Stuart will not be there on Friday, and to be honest, apart from John Kerr on New Day Australia filling in for Jim Ball and Clive Robertson on evenings, that day is a bit of a mystery to me.
Also on the fill-in list this week is Glenn Wheeler, who is filling in for Tim Webster on the afternoon show.
2UE are keeping their game of shuffles alive by moving gardening (and anything else that he feels like mentioning) presenter Don Burke from the weekend afternoon show to the weekend breakfast show. Don did have a segment on the Glenn Wheeler show between 4pm and 6pm on Saturdays, and he is now going to be heard on Saturday and Sunday mornings between 6am and 8am. By the sounds of it, Don will have his own show instead of being part of the existing George and Paul breakfast show, so how George and Paul will reschedule their regular segments is anyone’s guess.
And the rumours about Clive Robertson returning to a regular shift abound. There seem to be two versions of the rumour, one is that Clive will take over the afternoon show, and the other involves Stuart moving to afternoons and Clive taking over the evening show. The common thread in these rumours is the ratings, apparently any move would hinge on another loss for 2UE’s daytime programming in next week’s ratings.
