Current host, Lee Dixon has been re-united with Dayna Sayer who has returned to Tasmania after seven years in Canada. “Dayna and Lee have been great friends for several years so it’s been a matter of great timing for us that she decided to return to the North West Coast. It’s a natural fit and a definite win for us and the Coast!” SEAFM’s Lee and Dayna can be heard weekdays from 6am across the North West and North East Coasts of Tasmania on SEAFM Devonport, SEAFM Burnie, and SEAFM Scottsdale.
Adam aka ‘Straney’ has accepted the position of WAVE FMMorning Announcer 9am-1pm. Straney has been part of the Grant Broadcasters family for some time now, including the past few years putting together the breakfast show at 2ST Nowra, plus doing weekends at WAVE. Station PD Dean Kesby says: "With WAVE’s ‘bookends’ of Jade & Travis on the Hot Breakfast, and Clarky on Drive now in place, the addition of Straney into Mornings I believe gives us a super strong on-air platform for success this year." Straney’s start date is still TBC, but it's expected to be mid-March.
