Triple M Brisbane’s The Big Breakfast will this Friday farewell a beloved member of the team in Robin Bailey.
Content Director Rex Morris made the announcement saying, “It is with great sadness that we have to announce Robin Bailey’s departure from the Big Breakfast on Triple M.”
“Robin’s husband Sean has been battling cancer for some time now, and Robin has made the decision to step away from the microphone to care for him and her family at this time.”
He said Robin’s second time around at SCA had been another successful chapter in a stellar radio career.
“Robin has enjoyed overall number one ratings results with The Big Breakfast, giving her the distinction of achieving number one breakfast show results for three different Brisbane radio stations in three different formats. She has also been part of the breakfast team that delivered the largest audience result in Triple M’s history early this year.”
“Beyond her obvious talent, Robin has played an outstanding role for her team in the face of the sort of adversity that nobody should have to experience. There have been too many mornings to count where her bright personality and professionalism has masked the fact she may not have slept the night prior, or had just come to work after spending the night in hospital.”
“Everyone at SCA will miss Robin, and while she won’t be behind the microphone with us, Robin will never be far from our thoughts.”
“We have been working closely with Robin on succession planning and will announce more on this in the near future.”
Robin’s last day with Triple M is this Friday 20 September. The Big Breakfast will continue with Marto and Nick Cody.
