4KQ’s former breakfast team gets a lifeline at 4BC

Laurel Edwards, Gary Clare and Mark Hine are bringing their top-rating breakfast show, Good Times and Great Hits, to Brisbane’s 4BC 882 from 5.30am on Monday, July 11.

Current Breakfast host Neil Breen is moving to the Drive shift with his new show Brisbane Live, while Scott Emerson will take up a new role as political contributor across 4BC and Nine Radio’s other talk stations.

Announcing the new 4BC lineup, Content Manager Max Dudley says “We now have an even stronger local lineup with deeper connections to our audience, through Laurel, Gary and Mark, Ray Hadley in Mornings, Sofie Formica in Afternoons and Neil Breen in Drive.”

Laurel Edwards, who recently clocked up three decades on Brisbane Breakfast airwaves, an Australian radio record, is thrilled to join the 4BC family.

“Back in primary school, 4BC’s Murray Shoring visited to give a presentation about radio, and that’s when I knew I wanted to be an announcer. This is a station with such a great Brisbane legacy, and it’s a privilege to be welcomed here, wherever our new and old listeners are tuning in from. It’s a full-circle moment for me, and it’s even better to be doing it with my radio brothers Gary and Mark.”

New Drive host Neil Breen says, “I think it’s a masterstroke to bring Laurel, Gary and Mark to 4BC. I’m happy to hand them the alarm clock and I can’t wait to get cracking on my new Drive show. How good!”
