Macquarie Media has appointed Chris Smith as its new Weekends presenter for 2020.

Smith previously hosted 2GB’s top rating Afternoons program for over two decades and currently hosts Chris Smith Tonight and Chris Smith & Friends on Sky News.

“I’m very pleased Chris is coming back to 2GB,” said Greg Byrnes, Macquarie Media’s head of content. “He’s loved by our listeners and knows how to create great radio. Chris’s weekend show will be a mix of news, opinion, lifestyle and entertainment.”

An experienced journalist, Smith worked as a senior reporter for Seven News and A Current Affair before becoming a long serving Afternoons presenter at 2GB.

He will also fill in for Alan Jones on his number one-rating breakfast program when he is absent.

“To return to Macquarie Media in this capacity is the perfect fit for me now that I have TV shows to host at Sky News,” Smith said.

“It’s a great thrill to be asked back and an honour to be tasked with filling in for the great Alan Jones once again in the prime breakfast shift.

“As for the weekends, bring it on. It’ll be a mix of breaking news, compelling issues, great lifestyle information and a stack of fun, with some of my great radio friends.”

Chris Smith will launch his new weekend show on Saturday, January 18, 2020.

Alas, 10's Gladiators has gone as quickly as it came. Should make for a very wild garage sale, however.
