There was some big news for the Salt Breakfast duo Kristian and Eliza in January; “it’s time to hand the microphone and the headphones and the alarm clock… to someone else”.

With over 3 years together behind the mic, Kristian and Eliza have been doing an outstanding job of getting us up’n’outta of bed, ready for a brand-new day! Now it’s time for them to turn the alarm clock off and enjoy some quiet(er) mornings together with their family.

“…we have absolutely loved our time together and with you, our listeners, and just calling the Sunshine Coast home. It’s such just an amazing place to live in the world.” Kristian & Eliza shared in January when making the announcement.

Please join the Salt 106.5 team in praying God richly blesses this move for Kristian and Eliza, and all that comes next for them as a family.

Catch up on the announcement they shared with the Salt 106.5 community below. 

So what comes next for Salt 106.5 Breakfast?…. Watch this space Sunshine Coast! We’ll be bringing you an exciting update soon.

It was an emotional Breakfast show this morning, as Kristian and Eliza share that after 3 years of co-hosting Salt’s Breakfast, they’ll be handing over the microphone to someone new. 

“…we have absolutely loved our time together and with you, our listeners, and just calling the Sunshine Coast home. It’s such just an amazing place to live in the world.” the Breakfast team shared.

“…we both grew up here and being able to share mornings together has been just phenomenal.” Kristian shared, reflecting on his 6 years hosting Salt 106.5 Breakfast.

Reflecting on why now is the right time for a change, Eliza shared “…we would like to share mornings now just with us for a little while. We’re married, and we have been for almost 21 years now, and after a lot of early, early wake-ups (3:34 AM wake-ups), Kristian and I have decided that it is time to hand the breakfast show over to someone else…”

“We love Salt (106.5). We believe in the mission, we have been prayerful over the last few months, and just realized that it’s time to hand the microphone and the headphones and the alarm clock… to someone else. Yeah, that’ll be fantastic.”

“It’s such an honor to be walking out the mornings together, whether it’s on the way to school or work, and it’s just been such a joy and we do love it. We just know that for the moment and the time where our life is at, that it is time to call it.”
