Jodie Oddy resigns from Mix 102.3 Breakfast show
Jodie Oddy is leaving the Mix 102.3 Breakfast show Jodie & Soda.
Station owner Australian Radio Network (ARN) said Mark ‘Soda’ Soderstrom will be part of a “new direction” for the Adelaide-based Breakfast show, and an announcement about the rest of the talent lineup would be made soon.
Oddy has been with Mix 102.3 for 13 years, collecting over 80 survey wins in the competitive breakfast slot.
The show was momentarily surpassed by Nova’s new breakfast lineup of Ben & Liam in Survey 6, however regained its top FM breakfast position in Survey 7 with a 12.5% share to Nova’s 10.7%.
Oddy wasn’t quoted in ARN’s press release and her next move is not clear, however ARN’s chief content officer Duncan Campbell was full of praise.
“Jodie is an exceptional broadcaster who has played a key role in the success of the Mix 102.3 Breakfast show over the past 13 years. She is leaving on a high and can be proud of the difference she has made to the lives of so many Adelaide families and we wish Jodie all the best for her next chapter,” he said.
Last year, when Oddy was on maternity leave, fill ins included Mix Daytime announcer Michelle Murphy, as well as 7News presenter Jessica Adamson.
When Oddy’s maternity leave was extended, AFLW star and Olympic basketball silver medallist Erin Phillips filled in.
This is just the latest shake-up in lineups across the country as 2020 comes to a close.
