I think in Brisbane’s sense, they don’t really need to bother with having a PG DAB+ station - they just need to start to working with the River 94.9 team to slowly start integrate that station into Pure Gold.

With Perth though, 100% agreed - KIIS was never a good fit for 96FM - and I think it’s better for the station to be a Pure Gold station, and for advertising purposes have a KIIS Digital station on DAB+ (closing down the redundant 96FM 80’s DAB station in the pointless considering 96FM’s music is very 80’s focused anyway)

Jase and Lauren will broadcast live from Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena next Wednesday morning (January 25), as part of KIIS’s FM radio partnership deal with the Australian Open.

I hope they are marketing it as Live from the AO, not the Margaret Court Arena, that name has a negative connotation to many listeners.

Guess I’ll be enjoying The Chrissie Swan Show on Nova then. Not interested in these two.

The new line-up starts Monday, January 30.

News Corp reports Brittany Hockley, Laura Byrne and anchor Mitch Churi had reportedly been courted since the original 3pm Pick Up was axed in November last year, and offered significant contracts with ARN. It was only just before year’s end they decided they could add to their hectic schedules. Mitch will also continue to host The Night Show on KIIS.

What do we all think of this? Interesting choice… Will Mitch continue to do the night show?

I think I will continue to look for music on the radio at that time of the day.

I just noticed on this competition, a new telephone number for Mix102.3.

RAGELAIDE (mix1023.com.au)

The number is 1300 22 1023.

It is not their main competition line, rather, it is a separate telephone number just for this competition.

I wonder if/why Mix102.3 don’t use it as their regular studio number? (Mind you, it is longer than 13 1065).

Is Clint Stanaway still presenting breakfast news on KIIS 101.1’s Jase & Lauren?

He has been presenting Weekend Today too.

I think so, Clint was hosting this morning’s show in the studio while Jase and Lauren went separately to their hiding place.
