The upheavals in Radio have continued with ARN's 96FM announcing that it will be reuniting two of Perth's favourite radio stars with a brand new Breakfast show in 2018. Paul Hogan and Lisa Fernandez ('Lise' to her friends) will create 'Paul & Lise for Breakfast'.
 
ARN's National Content Director Duncan Campbell welcomed the new show.

"We're excited to bring Paul & Lise back to Perth radio. They have a wonderful chemistry and their irreverent, fun, and nothing's off limits style will bring a new energy to Perth Breakfast radio."
 
Current 96FM breakfast radio duo Carmen Braidwood and Brad 'Fitzi' Fitzgerald will not return to the station in 2018, with today being their final day.

Campbell thanked the departing team for their hard work.
"We would like to thank Carmen & Fitzi for their outstanding contribution to 96FM and the moments they've shared and laughs they have provided all of Perth over the past six years. Carmen & Fitzi are talented personalities and have been a great team and we wish them well for the future."

Of the station's ongoing strategy, he said: "The focus is now firmly on our broader strategy to deliver the very best entertainment for Perth and continue to drive ratings growth. We plan to build on 96FM's recent success in transforming its music position to focus on pop rock/modern rock, which has seen the station return to its music roots to deliver "better music and more of it" and this new Breakfast show along with our announcement last week of Will & Woody in Drive marks the next phase of that strategy to reignite the heritage and strength of the 96FM brand in Perth."

I’d like to thank Carmen and fitzi for a great show over the years.
I’m not happy that they have been cancelled I feel that the station know will have a even bigger turn for the worst as most of the other stations that I have heard are rather pathetic as they talk rubbish Carmen n Fitzi were different just the way I liked it.
I’m sorry to say that I will not be listening to this station anymore.
