Hit107’s Amos, Cat & Angus show to wrap up
Hit107 will have a new Breakfast team next month, with the station announced that Amos Gill and Cat Lynch are departing the country.
The Amos, Cat and Angus show will finish up, with Cat going travelling overseas and Amos leaving to pursue his stand-up career in the US.
Amos revealed in an Instagram post that he’s been signed by an American management company.
Well Adelaide, it’s with mixed emotions that I let you know I will be finishing up at hit107 on September 22. Over the last few years, I’ve spent a great deal of time in the USA, pursuing stand up. That’s always been my dream (‘dream’ yuck). Last month I was lucky enough to get signed by a US management company and they have given me the push I need to move. Over the next year I’ll be spending most of my time in the states and am already looking at buying a firearm. It’s been 4 years at hit and it’s time. There will be plenty of thank you’s to come, but for now, let’s enjoy our final 5 weeks.
Angus will stay with the Hit Network, and a new Adelaide Breakfast show will be announced in the coming weeks.
“It’s the right time,” said Angus. “I helped launch hit107 when I was 22 and have been very lucky to be here for four years.
“It’s a big part of my life, but I’ve always wanted to live in America and do stand up. I will also never wake up at 4am again. Ever!”
“I’m sad but looking forward to what’s next,” said Cat.
“Adelaide has been great to me and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. I may never get this chance to travel to South America for an extended period ever again.”
“I’ll be staying within the Hit Network and I’m extremely excited for the role 2019 has for me,” said Angus.
“Until December, I’ll be sticking around Adelaide to develop a house at Christies Beach and drinking copious amounts of Tomfoolery Shiraz. I’ll be melancholy at leaving what I call home.”
“Amos, Cat and Angus have been an incredible asset to our network,” surmised Hit Network head of content Gemma Fordham.
“However, with the shift in our target audience we’re excited to deliver a local show in Adelaide that will line up with our variety music strategy and that will also complement our two existing drive shows.”
The final Amos, Cat and Angus show will take place Friday September 21.
