Is imitation really the sincerest form of flattery?
Friday morning saw Fox FM’s Fifi, Fev and Byron debut a segment featuring producer Tim James, where he pitches a new idea to the show’s EP.
Deano’s Pitch has seen Nova 100 Breakfast anchor Dean Thomas successfully pitch ideas including Know Your Stefanovics, Hangin’ with Deano and Surprise Guest – all which have become regular segments.
Here is Deano’s Pitch from Friday, a new finance segment where he gets Toady from Neighbours (Ryan Moloney) to do his taxes, after Margot Robbie revealed in a recent Nova interview that she had previously done so.
And for comparison’s sake, here is Fox FM’s new segment featuring Tim James called ‘Hey Sickie’, where listeners call their bosses live on-air to chuck a sick day from work.
Fox FM have also made a number of similar choices to Nova 100 regarding their lineup, including the introduction of a former AFL player and the decision to start comedian Dave Thornton an hour later, at the same time as Sam Pang.
