ABC Newcastle has announced changes to its lineup for 2019, which will include Dan Cox and Jenny Marchant presenting a double-header breakfast program from 5.30am to 9am on weekdays.
The broadcaster has not yet confirmed its morning presenter, but said Aaron Kearney would take the helm on weekday afternoons from 3pm to 6pm.
“Treasure Hunter will move to a seasonal format to make way for Craig Hamilton, who'll bring a bigger mix of local news and sport to Saturdays,” ABC said in an email to its listeners.
Paul Bevan will hang up his headphones next Friday after eight years presenting the afternoon Drive program and a total 32 years at the station.
Garth Russell will complete his final breakfast shift on air on December 21.
