SCA bets on breakfast trio

Channel Ten's Family Feud host Grant Denyer is set to join Southern Cross Austereo’s (SCA) Hit Network. Denyer will join Em Rusciano and Ed Kavalee on Sydney’s 2Day FM breakfast show weekdays from 6am in 2018. The breakfast show slot has been a tricky one for SCA, having axed Rove & Sam last year due to flailing ratings. Melbourne-based Rusciano and co-host Harley Breen took over the slot but have since failed to make a real dent in Sydney breakfast – something SCA's head of content for Hit Network, Gemma Fordham, said will come in time. “A lot of people still haven’t tried it,” Fordham told AdNews after the last ratings. Co-host Breen will exit this year and is replaced by comedian Kavalee. AdNews also understands that Fordham has relocated to Melbourne, putting her in a better position to help with the show. 2DayFM breakfast with Em, Grant and Ed will be on-air from 15 January.
