I don't think the live to air brekky stunt with him and Lisa from the Veronicas in bed together after the ARIAs helped much.

How was that his fault? Didn't they break into his house?

here's the internal memo from 2DAY:



"Craig 'Lowie' Low has announced he is leaving the Hot30 to concentrate on other media opportunities.

"Craig has been hosting the Hot30 for almost two years and now plans to shift his focus to his role at Fox 8 and developing his stand up comedy show.

"Lowie has been an entertaining and charismatic host and we thank him for his hard work in helping to keep the Hot30 Australia's number one evening show.

"Sam Mac will fill in as Hot30 host from tonight until a permanent replacement is announced."

I would presume he would be signed to Foxtel as he hosts CD Live for them.
