“The Worst Hot dog I’ve ever eaten” but he will never forget it.

If Jules got smashed last week on the ice with the 2Day BlackOut Challenge, then Merrick got hammered by of all things, a Hotdog.

But no ordinary dog, Merrick ate Australia’s hottest hot dog layered with 'XXXXX sauce', which is 900 times hotter than a jalapeño.

“Just don’t stuff it up”

Todd & Sami have kicked off their brand new Drive Show on 92.7 MIX FM on the Sunshine Coast.

Since they have been off air, leaving the breakfast show on HOT91, a few things have happened, well in Sami’s life, with the arrival of her son, “August Louie".

Todd seems pretty happy to be working the opposite end of the day saying, “Nicer time of the day to be alive”

The headline “Just don’t stuff it up”?  A few encouraging words from owner Glenn Wheatley.

You can hear their first break below.

Is it EVER okay?

She puts herself out there every day. 

She sees it as her job, she is completely and totally professional. As Brad March highlighted a few weeks back, Robin Bailey from ARN’s 97.3 in Brisbane is a breakfast superstar.  But where do you draw the line when it comes to social media and the open forum it brings?

Robin posted this picture of herself last Friday on the Robin, Terry and Bob facebook page.

That was “Quick”

A few weeks back we told you about the new QuickHitz format. A format that delivered super-low commercial inventory and 24 songs an hour – simple, the music was sliced in half.

90.3 AMP Radio in Calgary was the first station in the vast Newscap Group in Canada to launch the format. It wasn’t long before the station copped a spray from Canadian Artists and musicians for chopping their works in half. The most vocal being Jann Arden.

90.3 AMP Radio dropped the format Tuesday and has gone back to its original format – and full songs.

"Will I be subjected to this every week?”

It all started off nicely, but took a turn. Erin Molan, Channel 9 sports reporter and regular on the NRL Footy Show, recently quit after appearing on Kiis with Kyle and Jackie O.

Last week on the show, Kyle and Jackie did their “Getting to Know You” segment but it fast went down a line of questions and comments that Erin wasn’t comfortable with including:

“I noticed that your chest area has got a little bit bigger, just wondering whether you’ve done a boob job recently.”

She answered the caller saying, “That is an incredibly personal question. I’m going to take the fifth on that one and just say I’m happy with my rig how it is. That is a weird opening question.”
