After working at Hope 103.2 for nearly seven years, Ally Barnes is leaving the Christian station on December 22. She says: “After seven years of being part of the Breakfast show, and a 3:50 am alarm clock, I’m tuckered out. And my husband and beautiful sons are not getting the best version of me,” Barnes reportedly stated to RadioToday. Her journey with the Sydney-based Christian community station began in 2013 when she joined as the Events and Promotions Coordinator. In 2016, Ally took on the role of the first producer of Hope Breakfast before she assumed the position of co-host alongside Brendan Jaensch in 2021.
Jase & Lauren will kick off their new show on Friday, March 8, on Nova 100. Speaking about their radio return, Lauren shared in a statement, “We’ve been genuinely overwhelmed by the response over the past few months and, in particular, the excitement of the last few weeks.”
