I agree with those.
The original version was messy, but the edited version seems easy enough for the reader to follow. Local breakfast, national drive, nights, Christmas Day.
I’d personally prefer to hear a local breakfast program in all metro markets during Summer, even if that means only having one locally based announcer in the studio/on-air. For the sake of 4-6 weeks, I think most people wouldn’t mind listening to a predominantly music-based breakfast program with minimal chit-chat during a traditionally more “laid back” time of year.
Also I’m not sure about everyone else but I personally wouldn’t want to listen to networked and outside of Sydney/Melbourne, likely delayed content (due to time differences) at breakfast time over Summer.
Regardless of the network, national breakfast programs over Summer really should be a last resort for smaller regional markets without sufficient resources to run a local show of their own while the regulars are away and maybe the period between December 24 & January 1 when almost everyone wants to be on holidays.
