… at least during the holiday season.
The mostly male dominated talk radio format at 2GB changed during the holiday season.
In an unheard-of precendent, 2GB aired 10 hours of female hosts on some nights during December and January.
When radioinfo checked the schedule on several nights over the past two months the lineup was:
- Heidi Armstrong presenting the finance show Money to Love
- Followed by Miranda Devine filling in for Steve Price
- Then Natalie Peters presented the mid dawn shift
Highlights of the overnight show included good news stories, expert advice and helpline talkback.
4BC, 2CC and 3AW also relayed the female hosted programs.
As well as her newsroom duties, Natalie Peter regularly presents a weekend show on 2GB with Michael Pachi, Miranda Devine is a regular relief presenter and Heidi Armstrong is a regular co-host of the money show with Steve Price.
