Triple M Newcastle’s Tanya & Steve will continue to wake up Newcastle after re-signing for at least the next three years.
Between the two, the duo has been on-air for over 20 years have had enormous success as the number one show in Newcastle for over 11 Surveys. With several Australian Commercial Radio Awards (ACRAs) nominations, Tanya & Steve won Best Sales Promotion (Non-Metro) at the 31st ACRAs on Saturday night.
Breakfast announcer Tanya Wilks said, “Being asked to sign on for another three years was an absolute no brainer for Steve and I. As a loud and proud Novocastrian, there is no place I’d rather be than in the Triple M studios waking up our wonderful listeners and having a laugh with my bestie.”
“The intimacy and immediacy of radio allows us to connect with the community we love and that’s a huge privilege I don’t take for granted,” she said.
Co-host Steve Grahame seemed a little confused, “Not sure what you mean, Tanya told me I was signing a get well card and I trust her with my life…”
Southern Cross Austereo’s Group Content Director for NSW & ACT Jase Allen said, “There was no other decision but to re-sign Tanya & Steve, they are two extraordinary broadcasters that have woken up Newcastle and the Valley for over 20 years and will continue to do so for at least the next three and hopefully many more to come.”
“Our listeners and clients love Tanya & Steve, their connection and love for this city is unrivalled and I look forward to them on air in 2020, beyond and continuing their ratings dominance,” he said.
