Bianca Dye replaces Robin Bailey on Brisbane’s 97.3
After a horror week of publicity, ARN have confirmed that SCA’s Bianca Dye will be joining Terry and Bob on the 97.3 Breakfast show next year, replacing Robin Bailey. Duncan Campbell, ARN’s National Content Director shared: “While this announcement has come earlier than we’d have liked, we are happy to announce that Bianca has just been signed to 97.3FM and will be joining Terry and Bob on the Breakfast show next year.
“Our preference was to re-sign Robin however based on the information ARN was consistently given throughout the negotiation process, we were led into a position where we were unable to proceed with contract renewal.
“Contrary to media speculation that this appointment happened last month, Bianca was only signed very recently, and only once it was made clear that we couldn’t meet contract expectations with Robin’s management. As we’ve said since we made the announcement on Monday that Robin won’t be returning in 2017, we’re all very sad to see her go and wish her all the very best.”
“Bianca is a fantastic, experienced broadcaster who began her radio career almost 20 years ago in Queensland’s Gold Coast. She’s since worked in Sydney on NOVA and is currently back in her home state where it all began at GOLD FM. She’s a three time winner of Australia’s Best Radio Personality and is a warm and cheeky voice. We’re very much looking forward to Brisbane listeners getting to know her next year alongside Terry and Bob.
Bianca re-joined SCA on the Gold Coast in what started out as a four week run on the Gold Coast, that turned into a permanent gig for Bianca Dye in February this year.
