Robin Bailey to depart Triple M Brisbane breakfast
Much-loved Brisbane broadcaster Robin Bailey has resigned from her breakfast radio post.
Radio Today understands that Bailey intends to finish at Triple M Brisbane next Friday and spend more time with her family and husband Sean Pickwell, who was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2017.
Talking to The Sunday Mail, Bailey says she holds hope for a “miracle”.
“This last week was tough and I thought ‘nope, that was it’,” she said.
“I hope this is a miracle and he [Sean] is here next year, but I need to spend time with my husband and not feel bad about the juggle.”
After losing her first husband in 2014, her relationship with Pickwell was rocked by the diagnosis.
Pickwell is a former Southern Cross Austereo executive turned brand consultant, through his agency Waterfront.
Bailey announced her engagement to Pickwell in July 2018, and the pair officially tied the knot four months later in November.
The wedding took place at Newrybar Hall in Nothern NSW just a few short months after Sean proposed at Movie World, with her three sons and Sean’s son and daughter in tow.
After a ten-year run and many survey wins, Bailey left 97.3FM in November 2016 after a shock ousting by Australian Radio Network.
Three weeks later it was confirmed she would join Triple M Brisbane Breakfast in 2017.
In the latest radio ratings, The Big Breakfast with Marto, Robin & Nick Cody was the #2 brekkie show with 11.2%.
