The Perth legend,  Fred Botica is back where he started his career when 96FM was the only FM station in the market.

Botica, who held the Number One Breakfast show for many years in Perth at Mix 94.5, pulled the pin back in May after 21 years straight.

96FM Content Director Brad McNally said: “I have worked with Freddie at the original 96FM. He is a really passionate music guy and will totally fit with the 96FM brand and persona."

“Fred will be our ‘fill in guy’ and we will see what happens after that.”

 Botica said: “It’s such a thrill to return to 96FM, being my first radio gig in Perth.”

 He will broadcast his first show on Sunday 14 September from 9am – 12pm.

Botica has  45 year career in the biz  spanning Australia and his native New Zealand. Botica kicked off his career at 3KZ, before moving to Radio Hauraki, then onto 89FM before moving to Perth in 1986. Most recently he was with Mix 94.5 on the Breakfast program.
