Mike Van Acker joins 97.3FM Breakfast

Former Assistant Editor

ARN has revealed 97.3FM‘s new Breakfast team, with Brisbane local and comedian Mike Van Acker to replace the outgoing Terry Hansen.

The news was announced this morning on the show and follows Terry’s revelation earlier this month that he’s to depart the show due to health and family reasons.

Mike joined Bianca, Terry and Bob in the studio this morning, but will officially begin his role from July 16 after survey break.

“Terry is a great comedian and broadcaster, and has contributed so much to the breakfast show over the past 15 years and while I am sad to see him leave I totally support his decision to focus on his health and spend more time with his family,” said ARN national content director Duncan Campbell.

“I know his loyal listeners will welcome Mike and his sense of fun when he joins Bianca and Bob for breakfast from July 16.”

Mike made his stand-up comedy debut in 1992 and has become a staple of the comedy scene since, but he’s no stranger to radio.

He has appeared on radio segments for 612 ABC and Triple M, as well as part of B105’s Gabby, Mike and Stav Breakfast show.

“It was never going to be easy to fill Terry’s huge shoes, but I know Mike will quickly become a morning favourite for our 97.3 listeners all over Brisbane. He is passionate about Brisbane and his family, and I’m sure he’ll bring a lot of laughs,” said 93.7FM content director Barry Drinkwater.

“I join Bianca and Bob in welcoming Mike to the breakfast team and look forward to July 16 for Bianca, Mike & Bob’s first breakfast show.”
