Josh Arthur leaves Power FM Ballarat’s Breakfast show
Power FM Breakfast’s Josh Arthur has left his co-hosting gig and is pursuing a career in real estate.
Arthur was part of a refreshed Power FM Breakfast line-up alongside Maddie Jarosz which was announced in February.
Arthur replaced Kris Kroemer who left to pursue his local coffee business, while Jarosz was taking over from Julia ‘Jules’ Zass, who is on maternity leave.
Radio Today understands Power FM’s owner Grant Broadcasters is recruiting for a new Breakfast co-host, and Jarosz will remain on the show until Zass returns.
Arthur has previously used the program to speak openly about mental health.
When contacted by Radio Today about his departure, Arthur noted he’d had a great time throughout his radio career.
“The almost four years that I spent at Power FM have been an amazing experience,” he said. “I worked with some of the funniest, most talented people, and I will miss them dearly.”
He didn’t rule out a return to radio down the track, however said he’s looking forward to what the future holds at his new job with Buxton Ballarat.
Power FM switched its on-air branding from ‘Josh & Maddie’ to ‘Power FM Brekkie’ on Monday, September 13.
Power FM Ballarat and Grant Broadcasters have been contacted for comment.
