Prue Macsween to have a show on 2GB evenings shortly

July 29th, 2009 at 05:28am

Further to the recent story about changes to the 2GB evening lineup, word reaches me that Prue Macsween is about to get her own show on 2GB, weekdays between 7pm and 8pm.

Apparently Prue has bought the timeslot, and will on-sell it to the clients of her media agency. This would explain Prue’s appearance on the presenters list on 2GB’s website a few years ago. MediaSpy are running the story as speculation, saying that she will be running a “small business show”. They’re calling it speculation…I have reason to believe that my source knows that the story is fact.

This also means that Luke Bona’s 7pm-8pm show which was recently halved to make room for an Alan Jones and Ray Hadley highlights show (see linked story above) will now get the axe.

Now, moving on to speculation, based on the Pyrmont bunker rumour mill. Brian Wilshire’s show to be extended to 1am, making it a 9pm-1am show. Andrew Moore’s show to start at 3am instead of 3:30am, making it a 3am-5am show, and the David Oldfield show to be dumped…presumably to be replaced by more highlights shows, as mooted in newspapers earlier in the year (I think it was the Daily Telegraph which came up with that one, can’t be sure though).

    How do you feel about ‘highlights’ shows?

    Personally, I can’t stand them and always change station whenever they come on. I just assumed they only ran them at times when nobody was listening (e.g. 5-5.30 in the morning).

    But if they are running them at 7pm, people must be listening to them. I just find that by the time they go to air, the news is old. (Or, alternatively, they run non-‘newsish’ segments which are usually time-fillers.)

    I’m not a fan of them davky, especially not in primetime slots. An 8pm highlights show plus a 7pm sold hour just sounds like a station trying to cut costs to me.

    I don’t mind the 5am Alan Jones highlights show as it is somewhat interesting hearing a replay of Alan’s main editorial, and his chats with UK and US correspondents, but I wish they would podcast it on the day that the stuff is current, and not after it airs. I’d still prefer a live show during that timeslot though.

    I think Sundays are a good time for highlights shows. It’s nice to have some form of “here’s what happened during the week” on a Sunday, especially when you’ve missed a bunch of things…but nightly/daily highlights shows are overkill in my view.
