The Em Rusciano Radio Show with Harley Breen “We hope to excitify Sydney?“
Southern Cross Austereo have made a move on 2Day FM Breakfast, taking out Rove & Sam and putting in Em Rusciano and Harley Breen.
SCA say the decision came after Rove & Sam along with SCA executives took some time off over the Summer and after review, decided that the best route forward for all was to move their show into another time slot.
That “slot”, will see Rove & Saml move into a nightly national show from 7pm-8pm across The Hit Network’s 43 metro and regional radio stations from Jan 30th.
Em Rusciano and Harley Breen as the new 2DAY FM Breakfast will kick off from 6am on January 23rd, positioned as The Em Rusciano Radio Show with Harley Breen.
Gemma Fordham, Head of Content, Hit Network says “The feedback we’ve received around Em and Harley has been incredible. Nothing is off limits and Em connects with her audience brilliantly, her humor and honesty is obviously what’s driven her to have a combined social media following of over 350K and we look forward to Em and Harley waking up Sydney each day.”
Having just stepped off the Summer breakfast show and after successfully hosting a Sunday night show for The Hit Network, Em Rusciano says “I’m excitified at the thought of hosting breakfast radio in Sydney, that’s a combination of my two resting states: excited and terrified. I love radio, I’ve been in and out and in and out again for 12 years! I’m like the herpes of radio… wait, I probably don’t want those words near my name for all of time do I? This job is the holy grail, the philosopher’s stone- the one ring of Mordor! I’m bringing along one of my favourite comics and humans: Harley Breen and together we hope to excitify Sydney! “
On Rove & Sam’s exit, Rove McManus says “One of the pleasures of 2016 has been working with Sam so I am looking forward to continuing working with her in 2017 at a more civilized time of day”. Sam adds “I’m pleased to move on with my friend Rove to our next gig, as well as undertake other commitments outside of radio.”
On SCA commitment to Rove & Sam, Gemma Fordham adds: “Rove McManus and Sam Frost continue to be key members of The Hit Network with their national show which will have a larger focus on entertainment content.”
