Liz Cantor & Jason Mathews cover Gold Coast Breakfast

Channel 7’s Liz Cantor and Gold FM’s Rush Hour Jason Matthews will take over the breakfast show while Richard, Bridge and Spida are on hols.

Liz Cantor said: "I'm looking forward to singing along to the songs I love on Gold FM and working alongside Jason Matthews. Although he can be a scrooge at times, he provides plenty of deep belly laughs with his quick wit and is a wonderful person to discuss social issues, current affairs and sports with. There's a lot of love and respect there for him and I think you need that with your co-host, when you're spending every day together at 5am."

Christmas Shenanigans – Present 2

As the year starts to wind down, it's time to put your feet up (perhaps) and spread some Christmas cheer.

Here’s something uniquely local from HOT FM Townsville's Cliffo and Bec

Cliffo and Bec kept it real simple asking listeners to submit their pics:

STEP 1 - Get a pic kissing under a toad
STEP 2 - DM it to us or simply upload with the #mistletoad

Bec told us: "It both appalled and delighted our listeners".  See some of the pics and reactions below:
