The “Laurel, Gary and Mark” show has been picked up by Nine Radio’s Brisbane station 4BC.

The show featuring Laurel Edwards, Gary Clare and Mark Hine finished up on 4KQ last month after the station’s owner ARN sold it to SEN.

The show’s conclusion on 4KQ was viewed as the end of an era with Edwards spending 30 years with the station, Clare’s two stints adding up to 31 years and Hine anchoring the breakfast show for 16 years.

It had also at various points topped Brisbane’s breakfast ratings, including in Survey 8 of last year.

Not long off the air though, and the iconic show already has a new home.

It will start on 4BC on Monday, July 11 at 5:30 a.m.

Current 4BC breakfast host Neil Breen will move into the drive slot, while existing drive host, Scott Emerson will shift to being a political contributor across 4BC and Nine Radio’s other talk station.

Max Dudley, 4BC’s content director, pointed to the enhanced strength of 4BC’s lineup with the new addition.

“We now have an even stronger local lineup with deeper connections to our audience, through Laurel, Gary and Mark, Ray Hadley in mornings, Sofie Formica in afternoons and Neil Breen in drive,” he said.

Edwards said she was thrilled to be joining 4BC.

“Back in primary school, 4BC’s Murray Shoring visited to give a presentation about radio, and that’s when I knew I wanted to be an announcer,” she said.

“This is a station with such a great Brisbane legacy, and it’s a privilege to be welcomed here, wherever our new and old listeners are tuning in from. It’s a full-circle moment for me, and it’s even better to be doing it with my radio brothers Gary and Mark.”

New drive host Breen added: “I think it’s a masterstroke to bring Laurel, Gary and Mark to 4BC. I’m happy to hand them the alarm clock and I can’t wait to get cracking on my new drive show. How good.”

ARN’s 4KQ played the classic hits music format, while 4BC – the new home of “Laurel, Gary and Mark” – follows Nine’s local talk format.
