By Jonas Lopez in Media News on
Bob Gallagher is stepping down from Brisbane 97.3FM’s breakfast show on 3 December.  He said the time had come to step back after 19 years of working the breakfast shift, the past 15 of which were alongside Robin Bailey and Terry Hansen on 97.3FM’s Robin, Terry, and Bob show. “I leave the show in great shape and I’m looking forward to a sleep in after so many years of early morning starts. I am still very passionate about the future of commercial radio and hope that after a break and enjoying some time with my family, I’ll be back doing what I love in radio,” he said. Gallagher is a well-known voice in Queensland radio, with stints in FM104 Brisbane, SEA FM Gold Coast, and 4KQ, where he was program director and later anchor for the Laurel and Mark breakfast show.

Roberts signs off from 96FM

By Jonas Lopez in Media News on
Gary Roberts is officially moving on from 96FM Perth, effective 10 December. Station parent firm ARN said he was leaving to take up a “major new event,” without elaborating further.  Roberts had been 96FM’s managing director for the past two years. He previously served at the station from 1980 to 1992 as program director and general manager.  “Success is always about the right people, in the right place, at the right time and that is what has been achieved at 96FM. This team is the best in the station’s history and will continue to deliver great outcomes for ARN. 96FM is a great heritage brand and I am delighted to have been part of the team rebuilding it in Perth,” reflected Roberts on his tenure.  “Gary has provided the leadership needed to build up and stabilise the Perth team. He has recruited some exceptional people, built a fantastic ‘can-do’ team environment and, from a ratings perspective, has delivered more for 96FM that we could have hoped,” added

Laurence returns to SEA FM

By Jonas Lopez in Media News on
Jack Laurence is rejoining SEA FM on the Gold Coast in 2022, as assistant content director and announcer. He is already set to stand down from anchoring the Morning Crew with Hughesy, Ed and Erin on 2DAY FM and is preparing with his family to resettle in the Gold Coast. They originally planned to go back in 2023, until a vacancy opened at SEA FM. Laurence had been away from the Gold Coast for five years, having worked as anchor of the HIT Network’s drive show and later at 2DAY. He previously spent six years with SEA FM. “In July this year my wife and I decided that we wanted to move our family home to the Gold Coast in 2023. We miss home and want our kids to have the opportunity to grow up on the coast and enjoy everything it has to offer, so when the role became available at 90.9 Sea FM it was perfect timing,” he said.  Follow Laurence on LinkedIn.
