Sami sequel

From a Triple M media release:

Yep, the rumours* are true. Sami Lukis is moving to Sydney and will host Triple M’s breakfast with Phil O'Neil in 2009.
Announced on air this morning, Sami told her listeners and her co-hosts Ian Skippen, Greg Martin and Greg Sullivan that they would have to find a replacement for her, and be nice! Sami’s last day on air in Brisbane will be tomorrow, Friday November 21 because she and Phil will be launching their new show in Sydney on the first day of Summer - Monday, December 1.
Austereo Brisbane General Manager Richard Barker said it was an excellent opportunity for Sami, and while the station was sad to see her leave, it does certainly create an exciting opportunity for a new voice to join Skip, Marto and Sully on air.
Stay tuned for further developments!

* That would be the rumours first published here at Showbritz (thanks, of course, to one of my radio contacts).
And, of course, the release doesn't mention that the move is making the Brisbane station vulnerable at an important time ...
