SEN has sacked the veteran broadcasters.

According to reports in the Herald Sun, Mark Fine's 13 years at SEN ended late yesterday after a phone call from management. Kevin Hillier has been with the station 11 years. 

Hillier posted on Facebook ​"It's funny really, in 45 years of radio I've only been sacked a few times but notched another up today. My time at 1116 SEN is over." 

"Been doing summers and fill ins since 2007, never wanted a full time gig.

"I love broadcasting, always will and I certainly believe I have a few good shows left in me.

"Thanks for your support. Another door opens. "

Fine said 'I wouldn't have an ego if I didn't think it was the wrong call, but I respect their right to make the decision.'

Jack Heverin has been named as the replacement for the vacated spot in SEN's new lineup, which will be renamed 'The Sporting Capital'. Heverin has been with CrocMedia since 2012

"I reckon they've made a blue, at night you are talking one on one to the listeners and you become part of their lives," Fine said. 

"But I love the station, and I love the game and I will remain a fan. I'm listening to it right now."

Other recent developments following the line-up reshaping led by CrocMedia boss Craig Hutchison include a new one-hour 6pm-7pm show hosted by Sam McClure, the cancellation of David Schwartz and Mark Allen's 'The Run Home', and recruitment of Gerard Whateley from the ABC.
