Mark Gibson to replace Stan Shaw on ABC Radio Perth Breakfast
After Stan Shaw said on Friday he would be leaving ABC Radio Perth Breakfast after less than a year in the role, Mark Gibson has today been announced as his replacement in 2024.
Manager of ABC Radio Perth Danielle Benda said:
“Mark will bring great energy to Breakfast. He knows Perth, knows our issues and is very engaged in our community. He is curious about people and loves a chat and I know is really looking forward to getting to know our audience well as he keeps us company and brings us everything we need to know to get the day off to a good start.”
“To present ABC breakfast is a dream job and an absolute honour, especially when I think about some of the exceptional broadcasters who have gone before me.
I intend to bring a mix of news, sport, music and fun to the breakfast show, keeping our listeners across everything happening in Perth and what matters to us here in WA.
I love a great story and I firmly believe that everybody has one, so I really look forward to engaging with our audience and telling the stories of Perth in 2024.”
Perth born and raised, Gibson has worked in news for more than three decades, two of them with Channel 7. A former state tennis player, Mark regularly MC’s events, has volunteered for many charities and is a national ambassador for Dementia Australia.
