2GO announces Shad Wicker for Breakfast in 2019

Former Assistant Editor

Shad Wicker will replace Akmal Saleh on 2GO in 2019.

The comedian and radio host joins Mandy Coolen on the Central Coast station’s Breakfast show next year.

After spending the last three years on Hit103.5 in Cairns, Shad is moving back to his hometown.

“I’m stoked to be coming back home to the Central Coast and kicking off 2019 with Mandy!” he said.

“But to be honest what really sold me was the free Hungry Wolf’s Garlic Prawn Pizzas and unlimited trips to the Reptile Park!”

“After an extensive search across Australia we’re happy to have found Shad who has the comedic flair and on-air experience to help continue to drive the 2GO breakfast show even more into 2019,” added content director Peter Yiamarelos.

Shad replaces Akmal who spent just one year at 2GO before recently announcing he’d be leaving the show to spend more time with family.

2GO Breakfast with Mandy and Shad kicks off on Wednesday, January 30, with producer Allan Sheppard and anchor Michael ‘Whitto’ Whittington.

Far and wide the coast is nauseous with familiarity, a true homecoming with lashings of persona and relatability.
