Sam Frost and Rove McManus' breakfast radio gig may be in trouble.

They’ve come under waves of scrutiny since they hit our airwaves at the beginning of the year, but it seems that the cutthroat world of commercial radio could spell the end for Rove McManus and Sam Frost’s breakfast radio show.

The Daily Telegraph are reporting today that insiders claim 2DayFm’s Rove and Sam may be bumped to the drive slot after current hosts Hamish and Andy’s contracts expire with Southern Cross Austereo’s Hit Network.

In a more interesting twist, insiders also claim the duo’s replacement could be none other The Bachelor‘s very own Osher Gunsberg with former Australian Idol contestant Em Rusciano. Both Rusciano and Gunsberg have had quite the bit of experience in commercial radio already which could give them a strong foundation to work off.

Although Gunsberg is best known for gracing out TV screens in a presenting role, he is a seasoned radio professional, currently hosting Brisbane’s 105.3 Hit FM breakfast show, Stav, Abby and Osher. He is also the host of his widley popular podcast, aptly named The Osher Gunsberg Podcast.


Rusciano, on the other hand, has just been announced as the host of a brand new radio show on the HIT Network on Sunday night,The Em Rusciano Radio Show. She’s no stranger to radio waves, starting out on 92.9’s breakfast show in Perth where she remained for 4 years before moving back to Melbourne to co-host the national Mamamia Today radio show.

Despite the rumours, Southern Cross Austereo has denies any imminent changes to its line-up.

It has been a rough start to Rove and Sam’s foray into radio together, struggling to maintain strong ratings and competing with rivals Kyle and Jackie-O at Kiis FM. The latest ratings survey saw the duo recording just a 3.3 percent audience share, behind Kyle and Jackie-O’s 9.9 percent share.

The failure of Rove and Sam to capture the public will no doubt be a disappointing result for 2DayFM who have struggled to find a strong and stable breakfast show to compete with rival stations. It was just last October that Dan Debuf and Maz Compton lost their gig to Rove and Sam after only nine months in the role.

At this stage, there has been no word from Rove and Sam on the rumoured move.
