Adelaide is experiencing some musical radio chairs.
After two years on ABC Radio Adelaide breakfast with Nikolai Beilharz, it is speculated that Stacey Lee is departing the broadcaster and heading to take Jade Robran‘s afternoon seat on FIVEaa that she vacated a couple of weeks ago.
The Adelaide Advertiser has reported unsourced rumours that FIVEaa is trying to poach the ABC Radio Adelaide breakfast co-host. The article quotes FIVEaa station manager Craig Munn saying “There’s been no commitments made.”
Lee and Beilharz took over ABC breakfast from Ali Clarke who now hosts the Ali Clarke Breakfast Show on Mix 102.3. The ABC will also lose Peter Goers OAM, the long time evenings host, when he retires on November 30.
It was a tight radio race in Adelaide for GfK Radio 360 Survey 6 with 5MMM No 1 and sharing top spot with FIVEaa on breakfast. Lee and Beilharz were third. Survey 7 is out this Thursday the 16th.
As ratings surveys draw to a close and contract renewal time comes around, a range of changes are being made across commercial and ABC radio stations as 2024 lineups are put in place.
Survey 7 results are out tomorrow and survey 8 is late this year, with the final results for the year due for release on December 19.
