In the last set of radio ratings, the show, co-hosted with Tim Ross had a 3.9% share of the Sydney radio audience.
Among the commercial FM breakfast shows, The Kyle & Jackie O Show on Southern Cross Austereo’s 2Day FM is number one with a 12.1% share. Fitzy & Wippa on DMG’s Nova are joint second with a 6.4% share, along with ARN’s Jonesy & Amanda on WSFM. Fourth comes Triple M’s Grill Team on 4.5%.
Rosso & Claire were fifth.
The duo were brought together by ARN at the start of the year. Hooper had previously co-hosted the show with Andrew Rochford. The Tele suggests that Hooper and Ross struggled to build on air chemistry between them.
The Tele reports: “Radio executives have been secretly auditioning prospective partners for Ross for weeks and sources say they are currently putting their hopes on one of two women – either the multi-talented and over-extended Julia Morris or Yumi Stynes.”
ARN told Mumbrella that it was company policy not to discuss contract negotiations.
