News Tech: Chris “Banksy” Banks, who has been serving Central Queenslanders morning on Triple M 101.5 and 95.1 for 11 years, has announced that his final broadcast will be on Friday. This hometown Rocky boy is hanging up the headphones and looking forward to sleeping in, and says, “I`ll definitely miss talking with Central Queenslanders every morning, especially Big Al, Groundsman, Manly Mick, Schmick Mick, Bruce the Gladstone Cabbie, Selwyn the Bush Mechanic, Tam and all rest.
“From all of us, we thank Banksy for his years of passion, and we congratulate him on all the incredible radio moments he`s delivered. The exciting thing is that we are now on the lookout for Central Queensland`s next breakfast radio superstar – sidenote – you`ll need a very good alarm clock!” Banksy`s breakfast radio career has spanned the east coast, from Townsville to Gosford, before 11 years in his hometown of Rockhampton.
“I think maybe most of all, I will miss the groans of my workmates when I start up on my Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel, and sci fi love chats on and off air! Quietly, I think they`ll miss this as well!” Triple M Content Director Central Queensland and Wide Bay, Ryan Bebbington, says, “Banksy feels it`s the right time for him, and he`s looking forward to the next chapter.
He famously had a vasectomy live on air and says some of his greatest memories would be donning the new Mayor of Rockhampton with a superhero cape and the alter-ego of Captain Stamina, becoming “Juicy Fineapple” Drag Queen for the annual Pine Fest, and starting Central Queensland`s favourite call time with “Esky of Dad Jokes”, now in its seventh year. He said: He loved the interview so much that he sent me his CD!” “He is the longest running breakfast radio show partner and I am truly proud of what we have accomplished together in almost seven years! and have since built a strong relationship, laughing every day even in the most difficult times.
