Today was Ian Blackley’s last day as part of the 96FM Breakfast show.

ARN have announced a restructuring of the show as part of their plans to re-launch 96FM later this year. With Ian’s departure it will now be a duo “Carmen and Fitz.  

An ARN Spokeperson said:

“As part of a broader strategy to drive ratings growth, we have decided to reduce the number of key talent on the show from three to two which will result in Ian Blackley leaving the show as of today.

“The structure of the 96FM breakfast show going forward will be the duo of Carmen and Fitzi who have been on-air together on 96FM Breakfast for the past 4.5 years.

“We’d like to thank Ian for his contribution to 96FM over the past 3.5 years and wish him the very best for the future.”

In our chat post survey chat with Duncan Campbell yesterday, he shared with Radio Today that 96FM was still: “A work in progress.. the breakfast show remained very solid with a good 1.1 percent increase for us… we are yet to unveil our full plans for 96FM, that will come later in the year”.

The 96FM audience is ramping up their comment on the 96FM Facebook page as well. A repeat similiar to when Hughesy & Kate arrived?
