Rove McManus To Return To 2DayFM Sydney Breakfast As Struggling Dan And Maz Get The Punt

Sydney’s 2DAY FM has announced that comedian Rove McManus is set to return in its new breakfast slot. However, Southern Cross Austereo is so far sketchy about the exact details save to say the program will be from 6am-9am and in Sydney only.

Guy Dobson, executive director – metro operations (SCA) said: “Sydney needs a big show, with a big name and it doesn’t get much bigger than Rove. We’ve got a superb plan in place to make sure the new show is everything you’d expect from one of Australia’s greatest entertainers. But…why would we tell you everything now? We’re holding some of the show-and-tell for later. Watch this space, all will be revealed very soon!”

McManus’ appointment also appears the end of SCA’s incumbent breakfast show – Dan and Maz – that has struggled horribly in the ratings despite a valiant effort to take on the likes of Kyle and Jackie O in Sydney’s hotly contested youth breakfast slot.

Dobson added: “Dan and Maz are a fantastic radio show. We’re committed to continuing to nurture and develop their infinite talents. They’re definitely a show for the future and remain an incredibly important part of the SCA family.

“We look forward to welcoming Rove to the Hit Network and are confident he’ll add further strength to what is already Australia’s number 1 commercial radio network with 18-39s.”

Rove said of his return to Australian media: “Sydney has been my Aussie home for a number of years now and I very happy to be making it a more permanent arrangement, even if it will mean waking at 4am.

“The immediacy of radio has the same electricity of live television – anything can happen and the best shows are the ones that go off script but unlike TV you can eat while you work and who doesn’t want to work with the smell of fresh toast.”
