Hot FM Townsville help out the ladies

The new Breakfast Show on Hot FM Townsville, 'Cliffo & Bec' haven't wasted any time getting out and about in the market.

August 5 was, would you believe, National Underwear Day and Cliffo & Bec took calls from female listeners on the dreadful state of their male partners underwear, in order to win some new ones for him.

Marto's weather worries

Last week Red Symons made a break to do the weather on the ABC News 24.  This week Marto from  The Grill Team on Triple M Brisbane is set to debut on Channel Ten.

Weather the way it should be presented – The Red Symons way.

We don’t think Red is heading back to TV fulltime and leaving his breakfast shift on Melbourne’s 774 ABC but he popped up and even photo bombed the ABC TV News 24 Breakfast program this week.

You can see Red’s no-nonsense weather presentation skills below.

All fun and games?

Already doing the rounds are the "quirky" things seen during this morning’s Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony in Scotland. (replay tonight on tv...don’t ask what is behind the kilt).

On our side of the biz, the ABC Grandstand team have ramped up the coverage with The Full Scottish Breakfast with Francis Leach and his team on digital radio, online and mobile.

 

But Sam and Dom at b105 have taken a different tact. The boys who do late nights are having some fun around the office with the Office Commonwealth Games.

Today’s event – Lawn Bowls.  See it now.
