triple j announce 2012presenter lineup

Triple J has revealed its 2012 presenter lineup and announced that Music Director Richard Kingsmill is taking 6 months off to go travelling. Assistant Music Director Nick Findlay will step up into Kingsmill’s role until he returns mid-year to resume on air duties as host of the new music show 2012.

Ex j voice Linda Marigliano returns to the fold after three years in London to host a new evening show that will ”...focus on new music with a strong audience interaction and request element.” Happening each night from 6pm the unnamed show is the official replacement for Rosie Beaton’s canned Super Request.

Tom & Alex, The Doctor, Zan Rowe and Lewi McKirdy will all return to their respective shows in 2012, while summer fill-ins Veronica & Lewis will take over Weekend Breakfast for the first half of the year.

The j’s also announced last year’s ratings, reporting that the station enjoyed a 5 capital city reach of 1.462 million listeners a week and an average weekly share of 5.3% (including a 15% weekly share among 18-24 year olds) in 2011.

Thankfully the Summer fill-ins won't be around for much longer. Some of them are horrendous.

Oh, no! Now you'll have to get up early just to hate them! Tough life.

They don't release podcasts so you can hate at your own leisure?

I liked Linda Marigliano. And if the show concept is how I'm picturing it I'd say this is an improvement

Well Im glad to hear that Super Request is canned. It had to be the worst show.
It wasnt even about requests most of the time but instead it was more like a triple J top 20 show with a few songs every now and then that you haven't heard in a while

Loved Gemma Pyke over the holiday break, so much better than Tom and Alex.

Almost anyone is better than Tom and Alex.

Tom and Alex are alright until they have to interview someone.

Better than listening to Dave Hughes.

^ I disagree. They are the reason I stopped listening to JJJ after 20+ years.

I liked Jay and the Doctor and Adam and Will better.

They are as far back as I remember from me listening. I stopped listening religiously when that smug cock Robbie Buck started doing breakfast.

Yay for Linda!

All they have to do now is replace Lewi McKirdy, the Doctor and Tom & Alex and they'll have decent presenters all day!

Are you serious? The show had problems, but I don't think playing music which wasn't requested was one of them. Of course it was a Top 20 show - they played the songs that were popular with their listeners, because their listeners rang up and asked for them.

why does everyone hate on the JJJs so much? they're still miles better than all the commercial sh*t, and will always be my choice of station. I don't even mind T&A *ducks*
