With only days to go before the deadline passes for entries to the first ever Women in Media Awards, B&T can reveal that Mix FM’s female breakfast duo will be presenting the awards on the night.
Sami Lukis and Yumi Stynes (pictured) made Australian broadcasting history this year as Sydney’s first ever all female FM breakfast radio hosts on Mix106.5, taking their lead from Chrissie Swan and Jane Hall in Melbourne on Mix101.1.
Their popular morning show offers breakfast listeners a unique perspective to the lifestyles of the 25-44 year old female demographic.
Stynes previously co-hosted Network Ten’s The Circle, with the show winning a Logie for best light entertainment in 2011. Last year she was nominated for best newcomer at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards for Mix FM's weekday radio show The 3pm Pick Up.
Lukis previously co-hosted the drive show on Mix FM for Sydney and Melbourne, while also enjoyed stints working at Nine Network, Foxtel, Network Ten and Triple M.
