Christchurch television and radio identity Jason Gunn will soon be broadcasting to a national audience.
Classic Hits said today that its two Christchurch breakfast DJs, Gunn and Dave Fitzgerald, will move from their local morning slot to a drivetime show broadcasting nationally from 4pm to 7pm.
The move will take effect from Monday, July 23.
Network content director Jason Winstanley said audiences wanted more personality-driven shows.
"Listeners aren't content with listening to just music,'' he said. ''They want more content and more entertainment to unwind after a long day."
Gunn said the move was timely as the city was rebuilt.
"We've been through a lot - shakes and rumbles, laughs and tears,'' he said.
"Dave and I are really looking forward to sharing some laughs in the afternoons.
''We're bloody great mates who love rarking each other up and are more than a little competitive. Sure he beats me at golf, but I look better in a dress."
