Marcus Paul moves to Starter FM
It was in early February this year Marcus Paul penned an open letter exclusively for Radio Today, addressing his departure from 2SM.
The talk radio host was sacked after an inappropriate reference to the tragic death of a schoolgirl in a news quiz and subsequently apologised for the “completely inappropriate” giveaway quiz, which mentioned an alleged murder victim.
Now on Starter FM, the program will focus on a modern take of today’s news and politics.
Speaking exclusively to Radio Today on his appointment Paul said, “After I left 2SM Daniel and Alex from StarterFM approached me to see if I wanted to bring my show to their online station – and as they had just got themselves on the iHeart Radio platform.
“I thought it was a good fit … a two-hour show of news, opinion, and interviews (similar to what I did on 2SM).
“We will initially air for two hours and then podcast the content too. Hopefully, we will be able to raise some sponsorship to enable the show to run longer – and eventually include live callers.
“It’s exciting, and I’ll be working my backside off to make it successful! I think there is a market for this kind of show – providing a modern take on politics and news aimed at the 18- to 50-year-old market.”
Marcus Paul in the Morning kicks off Monday, March 7th from 7 am until 9 am weekdays.
