Changes at More FM ahead of 2014
Si and Gary (left), who have the #1 breakfast show in Christchurch and Nelson in NZ, are set to also pump their show into Auckland, Wellington and the Waikato in 2014.
More FM have moved their current Auckland breakfast show, hosted by Joe Cotton and Stu Tolan (below right), into afternoons and they will now be heard throughout NZ except Christchurch, Manawatu and Nelson.
Hayley Holt is leaving the station shortly and Clarke Gayford (More FM's current drive host) will move to a yet to be announced new role at MediaWorks.
Simon Barnett says: “We're really excited about the challenge – and meeting a bunch of new people from around NZ who are at the end of the day, the stars of our show.”
Gary McCormick says: “Simon and I enjoy working together because we are such different personalities. Simon is an upright, decent citizen with an outstanding conscience and high moral standards. I look after the other part. We have a lot of fun on the show, and are looking forward to sharing that with our new listeners."
Andrew Szusterman, Group Programme Director – Music, MediaWorks Radio says:
“Simon Barnett and Gary McCormick are two of our best broadcasters. They epitomise the MORE FM brand, and I’m really delighted to be bringing them to a wider audience. I know MORE FM listeners in Auckland, Wellington and the Waikato are going to love the show.
“With these changes and new programme director Christian Boston joining the team next year, 2014 is set to be a fantastic year for MORE FM.”
