Jo Stanley has addressed the shock of being dumped from her breakfast radio slot with Anthony “Lehmo” Lehmann at the end of last year, despite them boasting the number one breakfast show in Melbourne.
In November, Jo and Lehmo were told their services were no longer required on Gold FM just weeks after ratings told them they were Melbourne’s number one show – they had snapped up an incredible 8.4 per cent share of the Melbourne breakfast market, 0.3 points clear of Fifi, Fev and Byron on Fox FM.
Now, in an interview with Craig Bruce in the Game Changers: Radio podcast, Stanley said she still has no idea why they were sacked from the show.
“I have had so many people ask me that … and I have no answer,” Stanley said.
“I honestly can’t say. I don’t know what happened. I don’t know why the company decided to go in a different direction.”
