Speculation of changes at 96FM has been confirmed by ARN, with the announcement that following a review of the station’s strategy and direction, 96FM will soon have a new Breakfast show.
As part of this review Paul Hogan and Lisa Fernandez won’t be returning after the mid-year survey break.
Of the change, Paul and Lise said “We have had a great time at 96FM and are fully supportive of the new direction that the station’s taking and we wish 96FM much success.”
ARN’s National Content Director Duncan Campbell thanked the departing team for their hard work “We would like to thank Paul and Lise for their contribution to 96FM and our Perth listeners over these past 18 months. Since they started, the station has recorded its highest ever cumulative audience. Paul and Lise are talented professionals and we wish them well for the future.
“We’ll be announcing a new Breakfast show soon in line with our renewed strategy.”
