Guess who's back, back again...

Tuesday 04 August, 2015

Steve Blanda is back, again, stepping into SmoothFM drive news for a month long stint. 

The former 2UE newsreader will be covering Glenn Daniel who is on leave, Ron Wilson will move to breakfast.

Steve first stepped behind the mic at SmoothFM in June 2015, as reported by radioinfo after falling victim to the Macquarie Fairfax merger.

Steve Blanda: "I value radio news"

Monday 22 June, 2015

When radioinfo caught up with Steve Blanda recently (read here), he revealed how he had shed a tear listening to the final 2UE bulletin from his hotel room in London.
Steve was on holiday when he went through the formal process of being made redundant following the Fairfax Macquarie merger – he came back to Australia unemployed.

'I shed a tear:' Steve Blanda on that redundancy

Friday 19 June, 2015

When the Macquarie Fairfax merger happened, 2UE news stalwart Steve Blanda was holidaying in London.
With fifty staff to lose their jobs from a number of departments including news, few imagined the man who holds the record for the most number of ACRAs would be among the casualties.

He's back: Steve Blanda's Smooth move

Thursday 11 June, 2015

Steve Blanda, once described as the safest man in radio, is back after taking a voluntary redundancy from 2UE following the Fairfax Maquarie merger earlier this year (opinion by Peter Saxon here).

However, he is about to return to the airwaves from next week on SmoothFM.

ACRA recognition unlikely for former Fairfax staffers

Thursday 21 May, 2015

There are some noses out of joint at the merged Fairfax/MRN company over ACRAs entries.

Management at MRN have decided not to authorise ACRA entries for former 2UE staff who no longer work at the network, even though they are eligible to enter.

ACRAs entries need to be signed off by station management and MRN is apparently refusing to endorse those entrants. Maybe the network has learnt the lessons of past redundancy programs in other networks, where former staff members won awards that resulted in negative publicity for the network they had just left.

The Man with the Safest Job in Radio

Sunday 10 November, 2013

With a world record 17 ACRAs to his name for presenting news, Steve Blanda currently working at 2UE, is inarguably Australia’s finest practitioner of his craft. With a voice and delivery that proclaims “He whosoever believeth in me shall learn the truth of the events that occurreth this day,” he oozes credibility from every pore. He is to Radio what Brian Henderson was to television.
