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.

Sometimes our resident ANU arts grads need to have some of the hot air let out of them…

So I’ve noticed

62421063 isn’t a hard number to remember, between 6a and 9a, always happy to hear from the people themselves about why we’re not good enough.

Hell, here’s a question for them now:

Go ahead guys – “what would you do if you were sitting behind the mic?/What do you wanna hear from a new CANBERRAN based breakfast show?”

And where do you guys work? Canberra’s a quiet town and I like to make noise, you wouldn’t even have to leave your desks, I’ll come to you with a mic

Pete is funny.. and at least this thread somewhat clears up what happened to Cam and Lisa… I was confused when I woke up and there were different announcers doing the show.

If only they would get rid of the gotcha calls… I always turn my radio off for them.

That picture doesn’t do her any favours in making me want to listen to her!

Frots – no idea why but Lisa declined the offers and resigned, she is currently on a trip to Egypt.

It is sad how radio treats women in this day and age.

Cool – thanks for that.

hahahaha brilliant, I love a challenge.

Good to see the tradition of armchair bloggers who have been the cornerstone of what is now a generation of critics instead of people who work hard to become leaders is still alive and well – even if you are a minority.

You are however, the people I most enjoy hearing from, cos you are a challenge, and I see we have a long way to earn your respect.

Which is perfect – cos it gives me yet another goal to achieve.

As you can see, I’m not anonymous, this is Pete Curulli from Mix 106.3.

I want you to know who I am, I want you to know what I think, why I think it, and how it’s thought, because I want the exact same from you – it’s why I watch the RiotACT forums, because I for one enjoy the fact that people have an opinion – even if it is premature.

btw – @Frustrated – I’d be sticking with the iTouch with a username like that too

Who cares for radio anymore.

Itouch all the way for me.

So I was patiently waiting for the end of Pete. But apparently that’s not going to happen. So time to find a new station.

Good to see they’re sticking to the tradition of not allowing the hosts more than three syllables between them.

One lot of inane drivel replaced by another, “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.”
