Julie Goodwin leaves Star 104.5 Breakfast

Staff Writer

The Central Coast’s Star 104.5 is losing Breakfast host Julie Goodwin, who will step back from the show in 2020.

Goodwin has spent four years on the show with Dave ‘Rabbit’ Rabbets, and will wrap up her full-time role after the first quarter of next year.

She’ll continue to be heard as a regular guest over the rest of 2020.

“It’s with real sadness that I’ve made the difficult decision to step away from my breakfast role, but I’ve had to weigh up my family, my cooking school and life balance priorities, and hope I’m doing the right thing,” Goodwin said.

“My time at Star 104.5 has been a pleasure and a privilege and I’m proud to have worked with such a great team. I’m indebted to Rabbit, my partner and mentor, for teaching me everything about radio and for the wonderful laughs and fantastic times.

“I’m also awed by our listeners for sharing their stories and for their kindness, generosity and humour.

“I’m thankful to my husband Mick and our three sons for their support and good sportsmanship while I shared our stories on air and I look forward to our lives being more in sync.

I can’t wait to return in the new year while we transition to something wonderful and look forward to remaining a part of the Star family.”

Star 104.5 program director Shayne Sinclair said; “Julie’s unique chemistry with Rabbit will be missed by the Central Coast but Rabbit and Julie always look the bright side of life and this will not
change.

“Rabbit and the team’s commitment to creating a great breakfast show for our listeners will continue and we are excited about the new opportunity that 2020 will bring for the show.”

“The last four years have been a ridiculous amount of fun and we’ll be mates for ever!” added Rabbit.

“Whilst I’m gutted that Julie has abandoned me and ruined Christmas, I have to say that I’ve got so much admiration and respect for her making this decision. Hopefully this “cooking” thing works out for her.”

Goodwin’s replacement is yet to be announced.

I suppose since Paddy has gone back to Triple M to replace Mandy who had replaced him ?!? Perhaps there’s a spot for Sarah King back on Central Coast morning radio
