vega95.3Vega 95.3fm has today announced that breakfast hosts Tony Squires and Mikey Robins will not be returning to the station next year.

A dedicated change towards a music-led format in Breakfast has seen the move away from the personality based show with Tony, Bec and Mikey. Rebecca Wilson had resigned earlier in the year.

“Tony and Rebecca have been part of vega 95.3 since day one and were joined by Mikey in the Breakfast slot at the start of 2008” said David Borean, General Manager of vega 95.3fm.

“We thank Tony and Mikey for their stellar contribution to the station during the past few years, they are consummate professionals and naturally we wish them all the best for the future,” he added.

The sound of vega 95.3fm for the rest of 2009 and leading into next year will see it focus on its music position across breakfast and throughout the day.

David Kidd, vega 95.3fm Program Director and dmg Group Research Director said “Listeners love the music on Vega, and they’ve told us they want more of it and less talk to start their days. Our new music and information format will be truly unique in Sydney.”

The Tony, Bec & Mikey Robins breakfast show will finish up on October 30.

There are currently no plans to appoint a new breakfast team in 2010.
