Sacha Barbour finishes up as KIIS 101.1 Breakfast newsreader
KIIS 101.’s Breakfast show is undergoing even more staffing changes, with newsreader Sacha Barbour not moving across to the new program.
Barbour had been with the Jase & PJ Breakfast show since 2018, but revealed on social media she won’t be returning for the new Jase & Lauren in the Morning show, which kicks off in August.
“I’m gutted that I won’t get to say goodbye to you all properly on air, it’s not the way I wanted to go out,” she said on social media.
She said the program had been a huge part of her life, and thanked listeners and the show’s community for its love and support.
The Australian Radio Network (ARN) confirmed Barbour’s departure and thanked her for her amazing work and contribution to Jase & PJ. The network revealed Barbour would be moving to sister station GOLD 104.3 as Workday newsreader.
ARN also said the move for Barbour was part of wider shifts and changes for the show.
“KIIS 101.1 are launching a new breakfast show – Jase & Lauren in the Morning on Monday August 9. The refreshed show will see a number of changes to the content and contributors on the show,” a spokesperson said.
The show also recruited a new executive producer, Caitlin McArthur, earlier this year.
Earlier this week, it was revealed the show had dumped former AFL player Dane Swan as a contributor.
