Wollongong’s i98FM on hunt for new Breakfast co-host as Crammy & Lyndal move on
i98FM is putting together a new Breakfast show in the wake of the departure of Ryan Cram and Lyndal Rogers.
The two departing team members are set to host Drive on Grant Broadcasters’ 96.5 Wave FM.
This leaves i98’s Marty Haynes without co-hosts, but the network said it’s already on the hunt for someone to join “the region’s most-loved and recognised Breakfast announcer”.
Haynes has been with i98 since 2002. pPrior to that, in the early 1990s, he was a mid-dawn announcer on Sydney’s 2DayFM, and then a Breakfast host on Canberra’s 104.7.
Tia Davis, the station’s manager, said the show’s revamp marked an incredibly exciting time for i98FM.
“It wouldn’t be i98 without Marty Haynes and we are very pleased that he will continue to be part of waking the Illawarra up each day,” she said. “I thank Crammy and Lyndal for their time with us and with them well in the future.”
She added that the station is in the process of implementing a lot of positive changes at i98 – both on and off the air.
“Our goal is to ensure that we are continually diversifying our product while maintaining the high standard of localism, entertainment and news that the Illawarra has come to expect of us. I look forward to the months ahead.”
