Too opinionated… you’re gone
KIIS 106.5 Breakfast Newsreader Krista Thomas has been dumped for “being too opinionated for a woman” according to Sydneys Daily Telegraph today.
Krista had been the Breakfast Newsreader with Kyle and Jackie O in 2014 and was let go 2 weeks before Christmas according to the paper.
Krista has told the Tele: “I feel I built up quite a rapport with listeners over the year so it is disappointing and I’m sad to leave,”
She went on to say: “I went up against Kyle quite a bit but it was all in fun. This came from management, not Kyle. Sometimes management make decisions that are hard to understand but I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities that Kyle and Jackie O have provided me over the past year.”
Krista had been with ARN for 3 years and the last 12 months on KIIS breakfast. She is reportedly being replaced by Brooklyn Ross.
Sydney Confidential also reported that ARN refused to comment on the story. You can read the full story in the Daily Telegraph here.
