Hot Tomato’s Sean ‘Flan’ Flanagan hangs up the mic
Hot Tomato‘s top-rating Breakfast show will lose Sean ‘Flan’ Flanagan at year’s end.
Flan has announced he is retiring, and will depart the Flan, Emily Jade & Christo show which rated #1 on the Gold Coast as of the most recent GfK Ratings Survey.
The show has rated #1 in every survey since Grant Broadcasters acquired the station at the back end of 2018.
Hot Tomato content director Brendon ‘Whippy’ Dangar confirmed the news to Radio Today, revealing that Flan has decided to look at new opportunities outside of radio.
“Flan has decided that he can no longer set the 4am alarm and will finish up with Hot Tomato on Friday Dec 13,” Dangar told Radio Today.
“He is looking at new challenges outside of radio and concentrating on his family and health.”
Dangar revealed that #1 Drive show host Paul ‘Galey’ Gale will replace Flan on Breakfast, with an announcement on Gale’s Drive replacement yet to come.
“Obviously we are very sad to see [Flan] leave the Hot Tomato family, but we are also super excited to bring Paul Gale one of the Gold Coast’s biggest breakfast radio personalities back to breakfast.”
