Maddie Jarosz to depart Ballarat’s Power FM Breakfast show
Power FM in Ballarat is losing its second Breakfast host in as many months, with Maddie Jarosz deciding to move back to be closer to family in Canberra.
Radio Today understands she is rejoining the Canberra FM, which houses both Hit 104.7 and Mix 106.3.
Jarosz and co-host Josh Arthur came together in February to front the new show following Kris Kroemer’s departure and Julia ‘Jules’ Zass going on maternity leave.
Arthur, however, departed the program in September to instead pursue a career in real estate.
At the time, Radio Today understood Jarosz would remain on the show until Zass returned, and station owner Grant Broadcasters began recruiting for a replacement for Arthur.
Grant Broadcasters confirmed to Radio Today this morning that Jarosz had resigned. She was contracted until early next year, so it’s unclear whether timelines will line up with Zass’ return.
Jarosz has previously worked for Magic 93.1, but hails from Canberra.
