Australian Radio Network (ARN) has announced that it will not be renewing the contracts of GOLD 104.3’s current breakfast hosts, Jo Stanley and Anthony ‘Lehmo’ Lehmann, for 2018.
ARN’s national content director, Duncan Campbell, thanked the duo for their service: “Jo and Lehmo are professional, talented and entertaining broadcasters who have made a significant contribution to GOLD 104.3 over their time with the station.
“Jo & Lehmo will remain on air until the end of 2017, with further details of the plans for GOLD 104.3 to be announced shortly.”
The news comes as Jo & Lehmo topped the FM stations in the Melbourne brekkie slot in the latest radio ratings, which were released last week, with 8.4 per cent market share – up 0.7 per cent from the previous ratings survey.
However, an ARN tweet celebrating its radio ratings success failed to feature a photo of the duo amongst the network’s other teams, and Lehmo let them know about it.

Lehmo has been with ARN for roughly six years, with Stanley joining the network in 2016.
