“I’m incredibly excited to join Soda and the Mix102.3 team.”

ARN has announced the launch of Mix 102.3’s new show Erin Phillips & Soda for Breakfast.

From January 2021, Mark ‘Soda’ Soderstrom will team up with Adelaide sporting legend Erin Phillips for a brand-new kind of breakfast show bringing good-hearted fun to listeners every morning.

Of today’s announcement Mark ‘Soda’ Soderstrom said, “I am super excited to welcome Erin to our Mix breakfast team. There is much more to this down to earth mum of three than just snapping goals and sinking three pointers and I know our fantastic friends of the show will welcome Erin’s enthusiasm and cheekiness.”

Of joining Mix 102.3 Erin Phillips said, “I’m incredibly excited to join Soda and the Mix102.3 team. I really enjoy working in radio and to be on-air in the city I love is something I’m extremely grateful for. I can’t wait to have a lot of fun with Soda and plenty of laughs with our listeners.”

Of the new show, ARN’s chief content officer Duncan Campbell said, “This is a contemporary new direction for the breakfast show in Adelaide and we know audiences are going to embrace this exciting change. When we needed to find a new co-host for the show, it made sense to consider people who have been part of the show over the years. Erin and Soda have great energy and we saw really positive engagement from the Mix audience when she was on air. Erin is a great addition to the breakfast show – she is one of Adelaide’s most loved sports people, she loves footy, knows all about the juggle of work and family, and she is passionate about supporting the community. Erin and Soda are going to take the Mix breakfast show into the future and we are all looking forward to hearing them on air in January 2021.”

Phillips is a two-time Premiership captain for the AFLW Adelaide Crows and Australian sporting superstar with a remarkable professional career in both basketball and football. She is currently co-captain of the Adelaide Crows AFLW team and has taken the side to premierships in 2017 and 2019. Phillips is an Olympic Silver Medallist in basketball from the 2008 Beijing Games and in 2006 won Australia’s only ever gold Medal at the basketball world championships. She has also won twin WNBA titles. Phillips is married to Tracy and they have three children – four-year-old twins Brooklyn and Blake, and 16-month-old Drew.
