The B105 radio hosts have been boisterous channel ambassadors with ELEVEN since its launch in January 2011, introducing programmes such as Neighbours, hosting competitions and interviews.
Not everyone has been a fan of the linking segments, attracting some robust commentary online over the years. Lara Bingle also criticised them after they asked her on radio if she was “Australia’s answer to a question we never asked”.
Yesterday a TEN spokesperson told TV Tonight that Couch Time had not been axed, but is yet to clarify why Labby and Stav are departing.
TEN previously reached an amicable arrangement to continue the Couch Time brand following a legal challenge by Perth-based Fred Mafrica over the trademark name The Couch, which he had presented on community TV since 2002.
Update: TEN advises Labby is moving to New Zealand and both have ended their Brisbane radio show. Couch Time will announce new hosts soon.
