Macquarie should be thrilled to speak with you about Chris Smith!

Here's some information from Vince's petition:
The decision to axe 2gb radio host Chris Smith from the Noon to 3pm slot has come as a big surprise to many of his listeners.
With 18 years loyalty and 84 no 1 survey results, Winner of the Radio Heart Award in 2005 for children’s Charity , Variety.
Chris juggles a heavy schedule between Radio , Channel 7 Sunrise, Sky News panel appearances and makes time to coach children’s sport .
When Chris is not working he spends his time with wife Susie , children Ashley, Morgan and 3 year young twins Aengus and Henry.
2gb are forcing a slot change , 8pm to midnight. This will heavily impact Chris and his family life. He will not see his family all week .
There is no justified reason for the actions taken by 2gb. "If it ain't broke don't fix it."
Yet is seems 2gb management prefer to appease some and leave others high and dry !
Chris Smith does not deserve to be treated in this manner.
Please help send a message to the management of 2gb by signing and SHARING THIS petition to keep Chris Smith 2gb on the Noon to 3pm slot.
