The sighting coincides with news that her hit FM breakfast show on the Central Coast will be syndicated throughout regional NSW.

On Friday, Radio Today confirmed that 19 regional breakfast programs from the Hit Network were being shut down, leaving many communities without a local brekky team.

According to the publication, the changes are set to begin from Monday, August 24, and were the result of a cost-cutting restructure.
