Abi Benaud moves to 2DayFM as Breakfast EP

Former Assistant Editor

Abi Benaud has landed a new gig at 2DayFM.

She moves from her most recent role at Hit105 Brisbane where she was at the helm as Stav, Abby & Matt hit #1 in multiple surveys.

Abi now takes on the challenge of being executive producer for Grant, Ed & Ash on 2DayFM Breakfast.

“I have truly enjoyed my time as the executive producer of Stav, Abby and Matt working alongside an amazing team in Brisbane, it’s been a lot fun!” Abi said.

“As much as I will miss the Brisbane people and our hot hot weather, I’m looking forward to joining the Sydney team and everything 2DayFM has to offer. It’s a great opportunity!”

Abi has also spent time as a guest, entertainment & senior producer for the Kyle & Jackie O Show, as well as at 4KQ as an EP.

She’ll have her work cut out at 2DayFM, where the Breakfast show has struggled in recent years.

Abi is one of the best EPs in the country and we are thrilled to secure her to take the reins of 2DayFM Breakfast with Grant, Ed and Ash,” said 2DayFM CD Jase Allen.

“Abi has a proven track record on some of Australia’s biggest radio shows and most recently taking Hit105 breakfast to multiple number one survey results.”

Abi commences her new role on Monday, April 15.

This is a missed opp for Kiis. No doubt Duncan will be dodging Kyle’s calls as to why she’s not returning to head up their show.

Can you check if there are any Black Thunder jobs going and give me a bell?

Why are my emails to Matthew Eggleston not working?

Mind blown that ARN couldn’t win her back to fix the sinking 97.3 ship. I’ve been told Duncan Campbell has been brought in for daily coaching sessions. Surely they look at the number 1 breakfast show in the city and get a pretty good idea of where they went wrong!!!

Best EP in the business! Abi your a superstar and we are going to miss you so dearly but it’s well deserved. Are you going to be honest with the team on your first day and tell them your the sort of person who gets a rescue cat then takes it back a week later cause you’ve changed your mind? Best not to

Hit105 plays too much new music and too much Australian music.

Just play the HITS like the network name we came up with suggests…
The new one from Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper / Panic @ The Disco / Lunch Money Lewis, it’s easy

Well she has a job ahead of her. Is she based in Melbourne with the talent ? Will be very lonely in Sydney.

ARN could have used her in Brissie good talent. 973 has gone off the rails, the show has gone from first to worst. Its atrocious and has become an embarrassment for ARN. I hear they might be looking to put the Smooth format in. Sooner the better and they might get back to number one again but will need to change breakfast personnel.

One t, Liam. That’s why.

Let me be very clear, 97.3 is not a sinking ship, Duncan is not doing any coaching, and as was stated during the winner moment of 97.3’s secret sound, half of Brisbane tune into 97.3 cause they play Brisbane’s widest variety.

Duncan, can you please approve this comment I’m making?
