Tanya & Steve ink new three-year deal at Triple M Newcastle
Fresh off taking out the ACRA for Best Sales Promotion (Non-Metro) over the weekend, Triple M Newscastle’s Tanya Wilks and Steve Grahame have signed a new deal with SCA.
The Breakfast duo, #1 in the Newcastle Radio Ratings for the past 11 surveys, have signed for at least another three years.
Tanya & Steve have been on-air together for over 20 years and remained with Triple M Newcastle when it rebranded from KOFM in 2018.
“Being asked to sign on for another three years was an absolute no brainer for Steve and I. As a loud and proud Novocastrian, there is no place I’d rather be than in the Triple M studios waking up our wonderful listeners and having a laugh with my bestie,” Tanya said.
“The intimacy and immediacy of radio allows us to connect with the community we love and that’s a huge privilege I don’t take for granted.”
Steve added; “Not sure what you mean, Tanya told me I was signing a get well card and I trust her with my life…”
As of the most recent ratings survey (August 2019), the duo have an 18.5% share of listening (+0.2) among People 10+.
“There was no other decision but to re-sign Tanya & Steve, they are two extraordinary broadcasters that have woken up Newcastle and the Valley for over 20 years and will continue to do so for at least the next three and hopefully many more to come,” said Jase Allen, SCA group content director for NSW & ACT.
“Our listeners and clients love Tanya & Steve, their connection and love for this city is unrivalled and I look forward to them on air in 2020, beyond and continuing their ratings dominance.”
