Star 101.9 FM announce new radio hosts for breakfast show

Hosts of Mackay’s breakfast show, Sam and Rach, will host the breakfast show on 101.9 Star FM from Monday September 28 2020.

The announcement:

Grant Broadcasters is pleased to announce that Mackay’s number 1 Breakfast Show hosts ‘Sam and Rach’ will now cross the road and host the Star 101.9 Breakfast Show from Monday the 28th September.

Previously, both hosted Mackay’s HIT FM Breakfast’s Show prior to sweeping redundancies across regional Australia of the HIT breakfast crews by Southern Cross Austereo.

Star FM Mackay General Manager, Paul O’Connor who has recently started in the role couldn’t believe his luck and stated “We are excited to welcome Sam and Rach to the Grant Broadcasters family. Their love of Mackay is evident and while other companies are reducing their local on -air presence, we have expanded our strong on-air line up to create these new positions for them”.

Rach said, “I’m very excited for this new chapter in my radio career and so grateful that I get to continue being on air in the community I call home”.

Sam also stated “Now that we’ll be back on air, we’ll get to continue with our big stunts. I am worried that Rach is going to want our next project to be something that lets her sing”.

Group Content Director Ryan Rathbone has been inundated with exceptional talent looking to work with Grant Broadcasters in Regional Australia.

Ryan stated “Local content creators like Sam and Rach that genuinely connect with their local community don’t just appear. Lots of hard work has gone into developing Mackay and The Whitsundays #1 breakfast show and the entire team at Star 101.9 will do their bit to ensure Sam and Rach have all the support needed to continue to dominate ratings in the region”.

Grant Broadcasters continues to deliver local content across its Regional assets including radio, digital and online.

Sam and Rach commence on air with Star FM on September 28th.
