Mike Hammond returns to 2DayFM
Veteran broadcaster Mike Hammond has resurfaced at 2DayFM after leaving WSFM late last year.
He has this week been hosting Mornings on 2DayFM, taking over after The Morning Crew with Hughesy, Ed & Erin.
The announcing vacancy at 2DayFM has come about as Jamie Angel prepares to move to Brisbane to become creative director of Triple M as well as anchor of the city’s Big Breakfast with Marto & Margaux.
Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) didn’t make a media announcement about the appointment, however on Monday morning Breakfast’s Erin Molan asked her co-hosts Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes and Ed Kavalee: “Hey guys, is there someone new doing something today on our network?”
Hammond then briefly joined the Breakfast show before taking the reins solo.
Hammond and Hughes referenced the last time they saw each other at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards (ACRAs) when they “nearly had a fight”, however the full story was not disclosed.
An SCA spokesperson didn’t elaborate much on the appointment, but did tell Radio Today: “We have ongoing regular announcers who feature on 2Day and Mike will be joining that roster when we need him.”
Hammond’s shift is followed by Afternoons, which is helmed by Mike ‘MC’ Christian.
In the most recent radio ratings, 2DayFM had a 3.3% share in Breakfast, 3.0% for 9am to 12pm, and 3.8% for 12pm to 4pm.
