2DayFM replaces Grant, Ed & Ash with ‘Music For Breakfast’ show
2DayFM Breakfast is facing another shakeup, with SCA announcing that the Grant, Ed & Ash show is no more.
In its place, 2DayFM is getting a ‘Music For Breakfast’ show, hosted by Jamie Angel.
“Our promise to Sydney is an exciting and upbeat breakfast alternative for Sydneysiders on their morning commute where they can expect us to play just music for breakfast,” announced Hit Network head of content Gemma Fordham.
Denyer and Kavalee end just over 18 months on the Breakfast show, during which time 2DayFM was unable to turn around its position in the ratings.
London spent the last six months on the show in a full-time capacity, after filling in for Em Rusciano who departed in late 2018.
The most recent ratings survey saw 2DayFM Breakfast rating 3.1% (-1.1).
“A huge thank you must go to our breakfast show team, Grant, Ed & Ash, for the past 18 months – they are absolute professionals, have been a true delight to work with and have contributed to a culture of fun, community and inclusiveness we are proud of at 2Day,” said Fordham.
Fordham revealed that all three of Kavalee, Denyer and London will remain with SCA in other capacities.
“Ash London will continue to host Ash London Live nationally from 6.30pm weeknights,” added Fordham.
“Ed Kavalee will continue to fill in for Kate Langbroek, who is enjoying the European summer with her young family, with Hughesy from 4.30pm. Grant Denyer will continue making appearances around the Network.”
Jamie Angel’s new Music For Breakfast show will kick off next Monday, August 19.
