Brendan Fevola from Fox FM’s Fifi, Fev and Byron will be on air one hour less per day for the last week of the radio ratings year, after his partner Alex gives birth to their fourth daughter next week. He will be on air from 6am to 8am before taking his kids to school.


I swear 2Day FM are sounding more like Non-Stop Pop FM from GTA V every day…


Lise Carlaw from Hit Network’s national pre-breakfast show ‘Those Two Girls’ will join Stav and Matt on hit 105 through to their summer break in January. http://radiotoday.com.au/lise-carlaw-joins-hit105-as-abby-coleman-takes-maternity-leave/


Sarah Wills and Lise Carlaw from Those Two Girls will be heard around the country for Summer Breakfast from December 10 to December 21. http://radiotoday.com.au/those-two-girls-confirmed-for-hit-national-breakfast-in-december/


Peter Helliar will be filling-in for Brendan Fevola on Fifi, Fev and Byron while Fev takes paternity leave


According to a 2DayFM Breakfast Facebook post it says they play, “more music when you get up”.

Can anyone confirm what this means? Are they playing back to back songs with less talk?


Could be their “over Summer” breakfast programming while the regular presenters are on holidays.


The official radio ratings for 2018 finish this week, but Fifi, Fev and Byron have already gone into “best-of” mode.


This week is the last surveyed week, results are out on the 18th.


Yes, https://onlineradiobox.com/au/2dayhit/playlist/?cs=au.foxhit1019 tells us they are playing 8 songs an hour, branding is 2Day FM Plays More Music When you Wake up with Grant Denyer and Ed Kavalee (instagram).

No this is the last week, and how? FFB have been and will be live all week.


Pretty sure they are still live in the studio (until Friday).

Fev is working 6-8am and Fifi was away sick today.


I tuned into the show today just after 8am and it was playing a segment from a few months ago.


Prob cause they were live 6-8am not til 9. Dave Hughes was filling in from his home as well.


Hasn’t been mentioned yet - but Hit105 did one of their “listener selected” music features yesterday morning. They played nothing but Christmas songs during Breakfast. They had to reach a goal of 3,000 likes on a Facebook post to do it.

Some of the playlist included:

Ariana Grande - Santa Tell Me
Destiny’s Child - 8 Days Of Christmas
Justin Bieber - Mistletoe
Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You
Michael Buble - Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
Pentatonix Ft. Tori Kelly - Winter Wonderland / Don’t Worry Be Happy
Sam Smith - Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
The Vamps - Jingle Bell Rock
Wham! - Last Christmas


Tommy Little filling-in for Fifi Box on Fifi, Fev and Bryon this morning


Why is Brisbane not running an end of year appeal for the children’s hospital? This was a fixture in Nov/Dec with 105.3 bfast remaining on longer than other metros to finish the appeal.


2014 appears to have been their last one after 20 years. The 9 Telethon took over the appeal in October 2015 and is statewide. The glory days of the appeal are over! I recall Channel 7 doing telethons in the early to mid 80’s with phone rooms set up in QLD regional TV stations along with live crosses to them.



The Hit Network will continue to be home to Australia’s biggest and most-loved radio shows, music and stars in 2019 with all your favourites and more set to return across all 42 FM stations.

After filling in for the last few months, to the delight of Sydneysiders, the talented and adored Ash London formally joins 2DayFM breakfast with Grant Denyer and Ed Kavalee in 2019. With her unrivalled knowledge and passion for the music industry, Ash will also continue to host her nightly national music show – Ash London Live weeknights 6:30pm-8pm.

The Hit Network’s unrivalled national drive time line-up dances on in 2019 with Carrie & Tommy, from 3pm - 4:30pm, and Hughesy & Kate, 4:30pm – 6:30pm, returning. Carrie & Tommy are the most-listened to FM Drive show in their timeslot and Hughesy & Kate are Australia’s #1 tune-in for women 18-54. Collectively they have over 2.5 million and growing listeners around the country*

Danny Lakey, new to The Hit Network in 2018 with his outstanding national overnight show, will host late nights, 8pm-11pm, in 2019. Danny is a star on the rise and brings his own, unique vibe to late night audiences around the country.

The riotous Those Two Girls will return to the early morning breakfast slot from 5am-6am. The Brisbane based Lise Carlaw and Sarah Wills have become popular for their open, honest and entertaining conversations around everyday life.

The laugher and fun doesn’t stop there with Collective Noun moving to a slightly later time slot, 11pm-1am. Mid-dawns will be announced in the new year.

Gemma Fordham, Head of the Hit Network said, “We are so thrilled Ash has agreed to join our 2DayFM breakfast team full-time next year. She is the real deal, connects authentically with audiences and brings a fun, fresh and frank take on the day. The chemistry she has with Grant and Ed will only continue to flourish and we are excited about what is ahead for them!

“2DayFM breakfast is committed to playing more music when you wake up because we know that’s what our audience wants and that’s the 2DayFM difference.”

“In all dayparts the Hit Network has never been stronger and continues to grow with the best of the best leading our shows across the country. Audiences love our line-up of talent and our ever-evolving music strategy that sets us apart from the pack. We will kick off the year with a brand-new breakfast show for Adelaide with local icons and darlings Andrew ‘Cosi’ Costello and Rebecca ‘Bec’ Morse which we know will resonate with South Australians. We can’t wait for another cracking year in 2019!”

Kate Langbroek told the Herald Sun yesterday she would broadcast Hughesy and Kate from Italy next year. She is planning to move her family to Bologna for a year from March. She said she was going to stop working while in Italy, but Hughesy convinced her to stay on the show.

Is the show pre-recorded, or live on air in Sydney and Melbourne?


Big commitment for Ash London to do brekky radio and then a reduced night program as well.

Though it’s probably not much different from Bec doing brekky in Adelaide and then evening news on 10 News First or Carrie with afternoons and then The Project etc.
