4BC Brisbane has announced that the successful 4KQ brekky trio Laurel, Mark and Gary team will take over the 4BC Breakfast show. For Gary this is a return to 4BC after a stint in the 4BC newsroom.
On October 8, Brisbane’s 4BC flipped the switch and swapped frequencies with sister station 4BH, moving to 882 AM in a move designed to give the audience a clearer and better listening experience. 4BC Breakfast presenter Neil Breen was joined in the studio by the “King and Queen of Brisbane”, rugby league legend Wally Lewis and former Olympic swimmer Hayley Lewis, who together had the honour of flipping the switch at 8.08am.
