Rove rules out radio return

Former Assistant Editor

Rove McManus isn’t considering a return to radio, despite speculation regarding the future of 2DayFM‘s Breakfast show.

Rove’s Breakfast show on the network with Sam Frost was abruptly axed after a year, after which the duo was moved to Nights for a further six months.

Asked by Yahoo Be whether he’d consider making a return to 2DayFM, he responded “Oh god, no.

“Look Grant’s in there, who knows, it’s probably done well for him. He’s got a Gold Logie nomination out of it,” he said.

Rove and Sam had improved 2Day Breakfast to a 4.3% audience share, the same share that Em, Grant and Ed fell to in this week’s radio ratings for Survey #4.

Although Rove says he doesn’t miss getting up at 4am to do Breakfast, he admits he misses working with his former co-host Sam.

“I do miss hanging out with Sam Frost everyday,” he says.

“But no I’m back on television now. I’m happy enough there now.”

Rove currently hosts light entertainment program Show Me The Movie on Network 10.
