Jon Faine and Richard Glover appear to be the untouchables in ABC radio's new line-up for next year.

The major metro markets are moving to shared breakfast and morning presenter models -- in Sydney and Brisbane, two hosts will present from 6am to 10am. In Melbourne, Red Symons' breakfast slot will be filled by Jacinta Parsons and Sami Shah until 7.45am, and Melbourne mornings presenter Jon Faine will maintain his solo slot after AM finishes at 8.30am, meaning Melbourne won't get the new capital city mid-morning program called Focus, which the ABC says will draw on the ABC's specialist genre reporters and industry experts.
