River flows; ABC head goes

Ipswich-based River 949 has appointed Ruby Slipperz* and Dave Greenwood to host its breakfast show, replacing Wayne Roberts who walked out a few weeks ago. According to a River media release, Slipperz is a former top-rating announcer from Toowoomba who has spent for years as a councillor in that city and Greenwood comes via Sea FM on the Fraser Coast and a stint as Elwood at Universal Studios' Blues Brothers show.
Meanwhile, Crikey reports that ABC head of radio Sue Howard has left, paving the way for the intergration of Aunty's broadcasting services, including the creation of multimedia "brands" around Radio National's specialist programs and the creation of a News Radio "continuous news centre".
* Do you think it's her real name? I suppose Mr and Mrs Slipperz could have been film fans.
