All I know is I am going on holidays... to my happy place to fish: 4BC's Mark Braybrook

Wednesday 18 September, 2019
4BC Drive host Mark Braybrook has spoken about his future after an article appeared in the Courier Mail saying that his last day on air would be this Friday.

Braybrook plans to take a holiday then try to renegotiate his workload to be able to cover more sport rather than host a shift.

He told his listeners this afternoon:

"That is true, I have planned holidays for the non-ratings period for months, so I won’t be here come Monday.

Karl Stefanovic will be on-air while I go fishing.

What is also true is that I have been speaking with management about where my future may, or may not lie.

It is no secret I have a sporting background. I started at 2UE in Sydney as a sports reporter and moved to Brisbane 26 years ago to be sports director here at 4BC.

I have built my career around sport and as well as hosting Drive, have appeared on our sister station Maquarie Sports Radio since its inception.

I don’t know where my future lies, but I am missing being involved in sport. Calling the Intrust Super Cup for Nine this year has been fantastic and I love the television work and hope to do more of that next year.

As I sit here all I know is I am going on holidays after I call the Intrust Super Cup semi final on Nine on Sunday and then I am heading to my happy place to fish.

What happens after that will be in the best interests for me and my family, and the company.”

Drive is a local shift on 4BC, while most other programming comes from Sydney.

Mark may have moved to Brisbane 26 years ago, but am sure he was at 4BC for a few years in the middle of the 90's then back on Sydney radio and cable/Sydney TV.

Filled in over the last decade and ended up in full time employment when Macquarie removed dozens of staff in 2015 resulting in over 90% of the station content being from 2GB.

After Friday, 100% of shifts on 4BC irrelevant to Brisbane.
