Canberra’s Boutique Real Estate and Property Management

Pete & Biggzy for Breakfast replaces Cam and Lisa on Mix 106

While most of you cool cats are listening to podcasts and your carefully tailored playlists as you undertake the morning commute it appears some rioters persist with the quaint early 1900s tradition of listening to the radio.

But a lot of people were interested when we broke the news that Mix 106’s Cam and Lisa were being bundled out of the building.

Today the station has sent in this statement on a replacement:

Radio listeners in the ACT will wake up to a fresh start in the morning from Monday July 4th with the newly formed breakfast show ‘Pete & Biggzy for Breakfast’ on-air from 6am to 9am.

Pete Curulli is already well known by Canberra radio audiences since his on-air debut on MIX 106.3 in mid-2010 in the Drive-time slot, and more recently covering the vacant Breakfast shift. Carla ‘Biggzy’ Bignasca will be familiar to some listeners from her time co-hosting the Hot 30 Countdown and on the screen as a regular contributor to Channel 7’s Morning Show, Channel Nine’s Morning’s with Kerri-Anne Kennerley and 20-to-1. More recently Biggzy has been working behind the scenes producing both radio and television.

Canberra FM Radio Program Director, Drew Chapman says, “It’s always very exciting bringing a new on-air partnership to life but this time it’s all the more thrilling as we get to welcome back to the airwaves such a vibrant and switched-on personality as Biggzy.”

Eoghan O’Byrne, Canberra FM Radio General Manager adds, “Longtime and loyal listeners to MIX 106.3 will be pleased to know that the station will retain its live and local focus through the new Breakfast Show and will continue to appeal to families and carry on to act for the grass roots of the wider ACT community.” O’Byrne also says, “We will continue to serve Canberra as we are already famous for doing, but with a newly reinvigorated and fresh approach.”

‘Pete & Biggzy for Breakfast’ will air weekdays between 6am and 9am from Monday July 4th on MIX 106.3 Canberra.

In my 4 years living in Canberra I ahve despaired of ever finding a breakfast radio program that I could really enjoy
Scotty and Nige = 2 norty boys playing in the sanbox
Cam and Lisa = boring and banal
Pete and Bigsy = droll and fake and boring

Mix 106 could take a leaf out of NX FM’s Steve and Kim – these 2 had me roaring with laughter most mornings – seriously good fun and not at all pretentious….

I’m one of the old time radio listening brigade, and my car radio hasn’t moved from ABC News Radio since I discovered it a couple of years ago. Marius, Glen et al provide the most intelligent and occasionally dryly ironic news commentary that there is to be had.

And listening to Penny Wong calmly (always calmly) slice wotsername Nash, deputy leader of the Country party…excuse me…the National party… into tiny strips of bleeding meat recently was a true delight.

Off topic I know, but if there weren’t a few minor barriers (I’m a bloke, she’s a lesbian, I’m married, so’s she etc) I reckon I’d propose to Penny Wong.

Best part of 5 years, different hosts, and yet mornings are still taken up with the secret sound. It’s literally the headline attraction of their show. Bigzy’s endless boring chatter sure hasn’t done anything to improve things. Not sure changing co-hosts will either, they seem to just be picking blokes of increasing dishevelment. They’re not the worst, and I’m not expecting some NPR style discussion on Wittgenstein but “Joe & Bigzy: an even more inbred way to start your day” isn’t going to make me tune in either.
