The Canberra media community is abuzz with controversy after the quick departure of Mark Parton from the Mix106 breakfast slot… Only to be replaced by FM104.7 personality (I use the term ‘personality’ extremely loosely) Cam Sullings as if we would never notice.
I guess Mix 106 are presenting more than one ‘Cheap Trick’ to the people of Canberra at the moment.
If you think that all reports of things being amicable regading his departure are fact, think again. These sort of affairs are ususally pretty messy. I have heard runmours of a suspension that lead to a massive row between hosts, of which Parton was on the losing end.
Due to the fact that Canberra FM Radio Pty. Ltd (owners of both 104.7 and 106.3) will not shell out any decent cash for a proper breakfast show – thus giving no incentive for decent or fresh entertainers to apply – listeners are yet again stuck with a second-rate program. It’s all about making those advertising dollars though right guys?
Here’s a quaestion to those who think they’re in the know, what do you think happens when those ads come on anyway?
I can tell you right now we don’t pull over, or turn the radio up or stop what we’re doing to hear that important message from your sponsor, WE SWITCH OFF!!!
Any clarification or fuel to this little fire is of course, much appreciated.
