Hot 30 replaced with The Bump

After the prank call controversy in December, and the subsequent dropping of the national Hot 30 Countdown on the Today network, SCA have developed a new show to replace it.

The Bump will be an interactive program hosted solo by ex-SAFM breakfast host Angus O’Loughlin, who has already been heard in the timeslot for the past couple of weeks.

See 'The Bump' website here.

The show will feature celebrity interviews with the music being programmed by listeners via social media with pop up countdowns and 'music battle' features. The listeners will have the capacity to 'bump' songs in and out of the playlist.

Ex-Nova Adelaide breakfast team of Dan Debuf and Maz Compton are still serving out their non-compete clause, and will start on-air in March doing a national 6pm-8pm show which will be followed by 'The Bump'.

‘The Bump’ airs weeknights on 2Day FM Sydney, Fox FM Melbourne, B105 Brisbane, 92.9 FM Perth, SAFM Adelaide, NXFM Newcastle, Sea FM Gold Coast and selected markets on Southern Cross Austereo’s regional network.

It is understood Mel & MC remain on leave and are still being taken care of by the network. Only time will tell whether they return and in what capacity. A decision we're sure SCA (and Mel & MC) will not be rushing into. More on that here.

This is the first blatently obvious rip off of DMG, more to come I'd say - it's the begining of what I call the bottom of the curve knee jerk! Good luck though bro. I can rememeber when getting nights was a big 'dont stuff this up moment' gone are those days. This could be the pipeline though, so thats a relief.

i noticed the Grill Team are being refered to as 'the grillers' (by themselves and anyone who gives themselves a nick name is to be watched seperate issue) Do you think in time this guy will be called, the bumper! It really rolls of the togue, like Fitzo and Dano and jimbo... etc?

"THE BUMP".. nice name.. named after Princess Kates 'bump'?

Fact: The Hot30 was always going to be replaced by a new show in 2013.

Fact: In August and September 2012, a group of 2DayFM'ers were charged with the task of naming the new "social media based show".

Fact: SCA publicised they were taking the Hot30 Countdown off air in response to the "royal prank", when it was always the plan to rest the tired brand.

Nice one Graham, I see what you have done there. Funny as cancer you are
Graham G(15:51pm 25 Jan 2013)
Interesting kinda of reminds me of hot 30 Jelli radio or choose the hits Jelli radio where you would rock or suck a song off air get where i am coming from ?
Now my question is where is MC and Mel what is going on with them are they still with SCA ?
Jeremy(16:40pm 25 Jan 2013)
Such a shame SCA hve to chase DMG like this.. Good luck to the kid though. He's in for a "bumpy" ride.
mrjojo(22:01pm 25 Jan 2013)
Same Graham. It was axed in four to five months. This sounds to be integrated more with social media, unlike Jelly.
Riddles(13:02pm 26 Jan 2013)
SCA chasing DMG...interesting point Jeremy. Pity you've missed the fact that Dan and Maz, DMG's best young show are now working for SCA.
If SCA is such a sad and lonely place to work why is that DMG's best people keep coming over??
Sorry to ruin the fun, but SCA still has the best programming culture in the country-just ask all the ex DMG staff who are now working there.

This sounds exciting and fresh to radio! have to laugh at people who say SCA are following DMG. SCA is McDonalds, DMG are Red Rooster.
Elton Furnish(19:25pm 27 Jan 2013)
Alot of misguided criticism here. Ive had funnier spam. Good luck to the new show

i really enjoy the bump
zac(23:44pm 04 Jul 2013)
Really sad that the Hot30 is gone, The "bump" is nothing like the hot30 that we grew up with sadly.
Pitty they let Ugly Phill go, as he set the benchmark for youth radio in the 90's and his pranks etc, were great and harmless fun,
The Hot30 was iconic.
Kyle later on did some damage sure, but it soon improved. Hard to believe Austereo was actually planning to axe the show (so they claim)
