One of Bunbury's radio stations is set to undergo a major reshuffle, with most of the current schedule being axed.

Spirit 621 will rebrand to SEN Spirit on Monday, with a change to a mixed “music and sport" format.

Perth sports presenter Tim Gossage will head the new breakfast program alongside former Hit FM and Triple M presenter Naomi ‘Nay’ Pearce. 

Mr Gossage said he was looking forward to the change.

“I’m always happy to tell the world I’m a Bunbury boy and now to be part of the local
community through this show is super exciting,” he said.

Mr Gossage's move follows Channel Ten’s decision to axe their Perth-based news bulletin earlier this month.

Current breakfast presenter Ashley "Dillo" Dillon will move to the 12pm-5pm slot while maintaining a morning program on Saturdays. 

“After 12 years of 4.30am starts I’m pretty chuffed to be taking the reigns ... over lunch and the drive home,” he said.

GWN7 News Presenter Noel Brunning will leave the station under the changes. In his final show, Mr Brunning thanked the station staff and his listeners.

“Radio gives you a chance to show you a little bit more of yourself than TV does, so I’ve appreciated the chance to be with you each day and I hope you’ve enjoyed it too,” he said.

There will be a noticeable increase in sports content, with the Sportsday program being increased from one to three hours.

Sports commentator Gerald Whateley's morning show will be broadcast between 8am and 10am, as will former AFL footballers Garry Lyon and Tim Watson's Melbourne breakfast show between 4am and 6am.

The changes come after sports media company Crocmedia purchased the station earlier this year.
