Southern Cross Austereo’s the Hit Network has announced that its Adelaide breakfast show Amos, Cat & Angus will finish up next month.

The show will air for the final time on Friday 21 September, with the new hit107 brekkie line-up to be announced in the coming weeks.

Angus O’Loughlin will stay within the Hit Network, while Amos Gill will pursue his stand-up comedy career in the US, and Cat Lynch will use the opportunity to travel.

It’s not exactly a surprise that the show has been axed, having gone from 8.0 per cent market share in the first radio ratings survey of 2018 survey to 6.7 per cent in the latest survey.

Gemma Fordham, head of content at the Hit Network, said: “Amos, Cat and Angus have been an incredible asset to our network.

“However, with the shift in our target audience, we’re excited to deliver a local show in Adelaide that will line up with our variety music strategy and that will also complement our two existing drive shows.”

Commenting on his departure, O’Loughlin said: “It’s the right time. I helped launch hit107 when I was 22 and have been very lucky to be here for four years.

“It’s a big part of my life, but I’ve always wanted to live in America and do stand up. I will also never wake up at 4am again. Ever!”

Lynch said: “I’m sad but looking forward to what’s next. Adelaide has been great to me and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. I may never get this chance to travel to South America for an extended period ever again.”

Gill said: “I’ll be staying within the Hit Network and I’m extremely excited for the role 2019 has for me.

“Until December, I’ll be sticking around Adelaide to develop a house at Christies Beach and drinking copious amounts of Tomfoolery Shiraz. I’ll be melancholy at leaving what I call home.”
