Whilst Erin Phillips lives a busy life with her sporting career and all, I wonder if ARN management have had any say in this as ever since Ali Clarke started on Mix 102.3 their ratings at breakfast have gone from a competitive 1st or 2nd to a distant 4th or 5th behind ABC, 5AA, Nova and even MMM.

No. They’ve been on air all week (except today)

Are you sure? The last full podcast was Tuesday which usually means they were off the rest of the week.

Also, no Monday podcast.

Edit: I just checked iHeartRadio and all the podcasts are there. I wonder why Apple podcasts don’t have them on?

It was the best bits of Life Uncut radio show this morning on KIIS. They replayed the interview with Rebel Wilson.

Also, KIIS 1065 had an announcer few weeks ago on the 6am saturday morning slot.

Currently Head of Content for KIIS Sydney and Melbourne, the new role will see DB expand his remit across the network to include KIIS 97.3 in Brisbane and Mix 102.3 in Adelaide.

Notice that 96fm Perth isn’t included there. I wonder if it will move over to the Pure Gold Network from July 1? :thinking:

96FM seriously makes no sense as part of Kiis and I feel it is still lost in the Perth market. It’s not consistent with ratings. They need to rebrand as a Gold network station. It also feels tired, especially the imaging.

Clearly more to the story as to why he left SCA.

Nothing too sinister I don’t think. I think it came down to him not being fulfilled in the anchor role. He’s always been more of a music presenter and wanted his own profile - at Fox breakfast he was creatively stifled and not a main element of the show.

He tried to get some of that by starting his podcast when he left SCA. I’d say with not a huge individual public profile that was very tough going and didn’t pay the bills all that well. (Not to mention his intention to run for a senate seat which never ended up happening).

At KIIS he’ll get a regular paycheck and will be able to do his own thing during the day with minimal oversight.

Having a personality is necessary in breakfast radio.

I don’t think we will be seeing 96FM rebranding or joining the Gold Network. They recently launched new advertising.

KIIS 1065 line up for 2 weeks:

530-9am Winter Breakfast with Mitch Chur
9am-4pm Gordie
4-6pm Will and Woody
6-7pm KJ hour of Power

as someone who has worked in marketing in a past life - if the decision comes down it will happen. when i interned we launched a multi million dollar campaign, ran it for 6 of the 8 weeks we booked, only to be told on week 7 the company was changing its name, and all the work we did was for nothing
