Swan to Fox makes sense
by Dan Bradley
Last week SCA announced that Chrissie Swan would join “Fifi & Dave” on Fox Breakfast in Melbourne each Friday at 8am.
It’s a smart move. For both parties, and for quite different reasons.
This is Chrissie Swan
We told you aboutChrissie Swanheading back to the Sunshine Coast and joining Fifi & Dave on Fox FM. We decided to have a chat to Chrissie about it all.
We’ll talk about what she learnt being on breakfast radio, has her thinking changed since leaving, what was the worst thing that happened on I’m a Celebrity and has she got the Work/Life balance thing sorted?

The Growth of Digital Radio!
by Brad March
Is digital radio in Australia dead?
Not according to recent figures, in fact far from it. Digital radio is going strong and getting stronger.
The recent news that Digital radio is now reaching 3.2 million listeners in Australia, according to GfK figures released by Commercial Radio Australia (CRA), shows growth of 24% in the past year.
If that growth rate continues, digital radio listeners would exceed 10 million in Australia by 2020.
