Ian “Blackers” Blackley for 6iX Breakfast in 2019
Forever Classix 6iX has announced that Ian ‘Blackers’ Blackley is returning to Breakfast in 2019.
Blackers has spent the second half of 2018 broadcasting on Sunday Mornings with John Burgess.
Now he returns to the Breakfast chair.
“6iX staff have finally decided they can put up with me,” he said.
“Which is great news as I was getting sick of buying them alcohol and Friday lunches.
“So looking forward to 2019 back in the breakfast chair on Perth radio. If you get the chance, please join me and a few other regular voices that you’ll know.”
“We couldn’t be happier having the motorcycle mad Blackers hosting breakfast next year,” added GM Evan Broadway.
“With arguably the smoothest voice in Perth Radio we’re pumped to have Blackers on board along with a few new regular guests that might surprise too.
“We’d also like to thank Tim Gossage for the last 3 years, we’ll miss the big man around the corridors!”
“We’ve trialled Blackers on Sunday mornings with Burgo for the last few months and he hasn’t slept in or taken us off air much, so he should be fine,” said program director Brad Pottinger.
“He is a natural fit for our station with his back catalogue of music knowledge, history on Perth radio and his receding hairline.
“He adds to our strong local live line up with Mike Parry and Leo Nelson.”
