Fairfax Radio Network’s much-loved Magic 882 presenter Ian Keenan will host the station’s prime time Breakfast program in 2015.
Keenan is making the move from Mornings and will host Breakfast from Monday 12 January.
On his move to Breakfast, Keenan said: “I’m looking forward to presenting a feel good, positive Breakfast show to the listeners of Magic 882, as well as continuing to contribute to the station’s growth. I’ve loved hosting Mornings, but I’m looking forward to the opportunity of working with the Breakfast team to bring our audience a show that gets their day off to the right start.
“We’ll of course be playing more music than any other station and continue to run our ever-popular Breakfast contests, including the birthday wheel.”
Magic 882 General Manager Anthony Frangi said: “Ian brings more than 30 years’ radio experience to Breakfast, a rare achievement in the media industry, which has seen him forge a commanding career and loyal following throughout South East Queensland. His commitment and passion for the music, energised personality and loyal following makes him the perfect choice for Magic 882’s Breakfast program in 2015.”
“The Magic 882 team has a huge love for Brisbane and radio, so I’m looking forward to Ian presenting Breakfast and bringing our fresh and authentic offering, including the biggest selection of music to our listeners.”
Magic 882 will reach new audiences in 2015 via 882AM, digital radio, online streaming and its mobile app. Its combination of great music, friendly presenters, local news, information and entertainment ensures listeners feel connected and in touch with their favourite city, Brisbane.
Magic 882’s Breakfast program broadcasts from 6am – 10am Monday to Friday. A new host for Magic 882’s Mornings program will be announced soon.
