ABC Radio Adelaide audiences will wake to a new morning line up from Monday 7 August.
This morning David Bevan announced after 6 years in Breakfast with co-presenter Matthew Abraham, including finishing off with 14 consecutive surveys as #1 Breakfast show, the time is right for a change.
From Monday 7 August, Ali Clarke will present Breakfast from 6am and will be joined by David Bevan from 8.30am for Adelaide’s key agenda-setting half hour.
David Bevan will then present Mornings from 9am through to 11am.
David said,“It will truly be a joy to spend the mornings with our listeners. The best thing about radio is the audience. Talking with them, sharing with them, laughing and sometimes crying.
And Mornings is the best time. Ali and I will set the news hounds running after 8:30 and then our audience and I will enjoy exploring the issues – big and small – after 9.”
Ali said: “I still can’t believe I’ve been asked to start off Adelaide’s morning on the ABC – Mum will finally be proud of me!
“The last year and a half has been incredible getting to know the listeners and team, and the fact I can keep doing that alongside David is a privilege and will be a lot of fun.”
ABC Radio Adelaide Manager Graeme Bennett said, “South Australian audiences have come to rely on ABC Radio Adelaide’s Breakfast program for an informed and highly entertaining start to the day.
After 6 years, Matt and Dave make way for Ali Clarke and you can expect something new, but also something you’ll recognise – intelligent, entertaining, Adelaide-focussed radio”.
