Former 92.9 Perth producer Alex Flack (left) will anchor and EP the show. He produced David & Tanya prior to moving to Perth so is no stranger to Newcastle.
Steve G's drive co-host Kristen Henry (right) will be returning to Canberra to co-host Mix 106.3 breakfast with Rod Cuddihy. Biggzy announced her departure from that show last month to follow her husband Matty White, who, coincidentally is the new CD of SCA Newcastle (NXFM / KOFM).
The station may look to take the new Matt Tilley / Joe Hildebrand drive show in 2014 but they say more will be revealed about the lineup in the coming weeks.
Wilks says, "As Kylie Minogue once sang…'better the devil you know' and given that we have known each other for almost forever, we are starting from a good place. However, we have NEVER worked together so I'm fascinated as to how it's going to come out of the speakers. Who knows what kind of fireworks could explode…."
Steve responded with, "Tanya and I have been good mates 'off air' for 20 years, so when she asked me, I thought 'this should be fun, why not' "
GM Steve Smith commented, "With the two powerhouse talents of Tanya Wilks and Steve Graham at the breakfast table, KOFM will be serving up an enticing mix of real Newcastle perspective with extra comedy twist in 2014. Better get a bigger coffee cup, you won't want to miss a minute…”
