i98 Lyndal and Crammy defect to Wave FM

i98 radio announcers Lyndal Rodgers and Ryan Cram are defecting to rival station Wave FM. The Illawarra Mercury reports: “Ryan Cram and Lyndal Rodgers have both been longstanding employees of the WIN Corporation who own i98 and C91.3. Cram having started with the company two decades ago and Rodgers 10 years.”

They will host a new local Illawarra drive show on 96.5 Wave FM 3pm – 7pm weekdays.

“We’d intended to build a new show from scratch but when Ryan and Lyndal became an option it just made sense to hire them immediately.” said Grant Broadcasters Group Content Director, Ryan Rathbone.

Ryan and Lyndal have enjoyed ratings success on i98 breakfast with Marty Haynes for a number of years and will trade the early mornings for the more family friendly drive time slot.

“I have loved working with Lyndal and Marty, but after being on-air in the Illawarra for 21 years at the same radio station, I felt it was time for a change and to challenge myself. When this opportunity popped up at Wave FM in the town I have always called home and with Lyndal by my side, I couldn’t resist” said Ryan Cram.

“Banter has always been at the heart of our friendship and I know that will continue at Wave FM. I can’t wait to be able to spend more time with my family in this new time slot and I’m super excited to reconnect with our listeners at our new home 96.5 Wave FM.” said Lyndal Rodgers.

Due to contractual obligations Ryan and Lyndal will start on-air at Wave FM from Monday 8th November 2021.
