Two years onair for Red FM’s Alana and Robbie

Friday 26 July, 2019

RED FM’s Alana & Robbie have proven they are a strong duo on AND off air.
From interviewing high flying celebrities like David Guetta and Adam Lambert to live broadcasts from Broome’s Cable Beach, the heart of Australia’s mining industry in the Pilbara and the Hemsworth-approved Coral Coast, they continue to make it clear that working for RED FM is just a little bit different to normal regional radio.
As a state-wide breakfast show, the duo have travelled almost 30,000 kilometres around WA in 2 years, equivalent to crossing Australia almost 7 and a half times, tough enough with your co-host, even tougher if they are your life partner.
Alana and Robbie have broken all the radio rules as for nearly 18 months, the breakfast duo have had a real life partnership as well as a professional one.
About six months after coming together as a show, it became apparent that there was more to the relationship than just on-air chemistry, and after trying with to hide it from the boss, with little success, they finally came clean and it’s proved to be a great dynamic for the duo ever since, according to co-host Robbie Klitzing.
“You experience some pretty unique things working in Breakfast Radio, particularly in this market with so much travel, so sharing it together makes for great memories…and some pretty interesting content!” says Klitzing.
McLean agrees saying “In a world of 4AM alarms, creative differences and caffeine dependency – it’s not common for this type of relationship to blossom, let alone thrive –  but I feel if you can spend THAT much time with someone and not want to kill them… there must be something very special there!”
After two years on air together, Alana and Robbie agree they are thrilled to hit the two year milestone with both relationship and brekky show intact.
The only remaining question is: Will there be a radio wedding in the future?
We will tell you on the other side of this break….

Sound great together on air. Undeniable (breakfast show) chemistry from the start. Obviously their connection translated to on air from the off air connection, but sound amazing individually as well as a team. Great banter. This union is a winning 1. Hope to be invited to the wedding. Love ur show (on radio) and in life! Keep kicking goals u fab duo!!!
