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.
