John Stanley confirmed for 2GB Nights
Price recently moved to Afternoons, following Macquarie’s decision to part ways with Chris Smith.
Stanley’s Nights show will be heard across 2GB, 3AW, 4BC and network stations from Monday to Thursday.
He will also be heard on Fridays following the conclusion of the footy seasons.
6PR and Sky News broadcaster Jane Marwick will join Stanley nightly between 8pm and 9pm.
Macquarie says the show will combine John’s “vast knowledge and expert analysis of politics, business and sport, with his passion for lively, engaging and entertaining talkback radio.”
John Stanley hosted Macquarie Sports Radio Breakfast with Beau Ryan in 2018, before the duo were replaced by Mark Levy and Mark Riddell just over a year ago.
He recently hosted The Weekend Edition on 2GB with Erin Molan.
“Night-time radio is a very important part of people’s lives, with foundations laid by the likes of my good friend, the late Stan Zemanek,” he said.
“There’s nothing more engaging than live talkback radio, and I can’t wait to talk to listeners right across the country every night.”
Macquarie Media CEO Adam Lang added; “I am delighted to be announcing John Stanley as our permanent host of Nights on 2GB, 3AW, 4BC and network stations.
“Over more than 30 years, John has earned the trust and respect of the listening audience and has enormous credibility with clients.
“His affinity for his audience and his relentless capacity to work with advertisers made John the obvious choice to host the #1 rating Nights program in Sydney and Melbourne.”
John Stanley begins his new Nights gig from 8pm-12am on Monday, August 12.
