In an announcement that changes the history of Hobart radio forever, Heart 107.3 is preparing to sadly farewell its breakfast sweetheart Kim Napier from Heart Breakfast with Kim and Dave!
After opening up behind the mic to Hobart audiences for over two decades in news and breakfast radio, the dynamic on-air host told Hobart this morning that she is looking forward to freeing up her mornings and spending time with her family back in Adelaide.Saying goodbye to years of early starts with breakfast co-host David Noonan on Heart 107.3, Kim will finish up on air on Friday 19 December – at the end of the radio ratings year. Dave is set to continue in the breakfast shift and it’s anyone’s guess as to who will step into the studio beside him!
Kim Napier said, “I will miss the Kim and Dave Show, our listeners and the city. It’s my home town but I am excited about the next chapter in my life and whatever that brings, it will always include Dave. We are like family having invested 20 years in each other’s lives so I can’t imagine that not continuing.”
Southern Cross Austereo Hobart General Manager Damon Wise said, “Kim is a longstanding member of our on-air family and will be missed by staff and listeners alike! We’re looking forward to her final shows this year and will soon announce what’s next for Dave and Hobart’s much-loved Heart 107.3.”
