Stephen Cenatiempo will host local Breakfast show on 2CC Canberra

Assistant Editor

2CC Talking Canberra has announced Stephen Cenatiempo as the host of its new local Breakfast show, to commence from July 13.

6x ACRA-winning host Cenatiempo was a casualty of Southern Cross Austereo’s mass redundancies at the end of 2019, but now he’ll revive local Breakfast in Canberra. He hosted Australia By Night across the Triple M Network for several years.

He pledges to bring a hard-hitting program to Canberra, firmly focussed on local issues. “I’m looking forward to moving to Canberra and really shaking things up, especially with the ACT election just around the corner,” he says.

“My local breakfast show will put the listeners first.”

Part of the Capital Radio Network, 2CC GM Michael Jones says content remains a priority investment despite the current media environment.

“With recent cutbacks in other media, across radio, newspapers and television, we are proud to be investing in and growing our radio stations,” he says.

“This return to local breakfast in Canberra comes on the heels of 2 new local radio stations we’ve launched this year in My Canberra DAB and Snow DAB+ and our continued investment in Forever Classic 2CA.”

Cenatiempo will broadcast out of Radio Canberra’s new 2CA and 2CC headquarters and studios which opened a year ago.

2CC broadcasts on AM 1206, on DAB Digital Radio, smart speakers and the 2CC website.

What a shame 2CC is not bringing back Tim Shaw. He was an excellent talk show host for Canberra and a lot of his faithful listeners deplored it when he was replaced by Alan Jones, for whatever numbskull reason. I liked Alan but he did not get involved in the local scene or offer local political comment. No doubt Canberra was just not in his orbit.

Fordham was a brilliant replacement for Jones and lead into Hadley, Canberra is far to small to carry its own breakfast program with relevant content or access to the right guest.

Lets give Stephen a fair go. He is young, fresh, and Canberra has enough political fodder to keep the conversations going, plus outside issues will no doubt dominate from time to time. I for one like to think that this bloke will hold his own, and make us the independent, and strong city we should be instead of the constant bagging that seems to come from other states.
