Straney into Breakfast as Wave FM makes talent changes
Wave FM has reshuffled its Breakfast lineup again, with Adam Straney replacing Chris Lee on Breakfast.
Straney joins Jade Tona and Travis ‘Trav’ Winks, while Chris moves to a 12pm-3pm Afternoons shift.
Trav is set to take more of a news-based role alongside his new co-host and Jade, who herself replaced Mel Greig in the back half of 2018.
The changes follow another ratings survey at the back end of 2018 which saw Wave FM comfortably defeated by close rival i98.
Wave GM Tony Williams told Illawarra Mercury that Straney was a great fit given his history at the station.
“He’s a local guy and has heaps of energy; he’ll continue on the great work that the team have been doing,” he said.
“Him and Jayde have good chemistry as well.”
Straney last worked at Wave FM in 2013 as the Breakfast EP, but has more recently been working as media adviser for the member for Gilmore.
