It seems the Sydney breakfast slot at the Hit Network’s 2DayFM remains a poisoned chalice since the axing of Rove McManus and Sam Frost, with the latest ratings not good news at all for hosts Em Rusciano And Harley Breen.

GfK, the official provider of radio ratings for Commercial Radio Australia, today released its third survey for the year, which showed a 1.0 per cent drop in market share for Rusciano’s show in the competitive Sydney brekkie slot to 3.1 per cent.

The poor result makes you wonder how much more patience 2DayFM has, as McManus and Frost had a 3.8 per cent share of the Sydney brekkie market when they were dumped last year.
