Darwin’s Mix 104.9 ‘reshaping’ Breakfast show

Editor & Content Director

Grant Broadcasters’ Mix 104.9 has revealed it is “reshaping” its Breakfast show.

To assist with the transformation, it is seeking an announcer with at least three years of on-air experience.

“This is a rare opportunity to be part of a ratings winning show, currently Darwin’s #1 35+ and we expect you to grow that audience with a survey this year,” Grant Broadcasters said.

The show was previously helmed by Ali Burton and Greg Vincent.

Vincent stepped down at the end of last year.

Burton has been absent from the airwaves recently, however remains a part of the program. Grant Broadcasters told Radio Today she was on personal leave and they were unsure  when she would return.

Radio Today understands numerous candidates were previously offered the role to replace Vincent, however each fell through for various reasons, including the remoteness of Darwin. The new job ad, spruiking the opportunity to be part of Mix 104.9’s “exciting new offering” in an “amazing location with a winning team” is an attempt to attract more suitable candidates to the role.

Applicants can send their CV, a recent aircheck and cover letter to Ryan Rathbone, Grant Broadcasters’ group content director.

“Radio Today understands numerous candidates were previously offered the role to replace Vincent, however each fell through for various reasons”

What management forget is that we do our own reference checks the same as they do.

Speak to any former(or current) employee and you’ll quickly find out why this place is being avoided.

It’s way too expensive to live in Darwin on the wage they’re offering. I’ve also heard from ex staff that management is terrible.

It’s one of the duopolies forgotten about by grants coz it’s so far away from anything else…

I’ll show you mine if you show me yours (reference checks)

All I can say is, call current and past employees before signing.
