Planning on wetting a line this weekend?
NT fishing guru Alex Julius discusses his hot spots on Wake Up with Greg and Ali.
Daly River - keep trying
Shady Camp - great fishing last fortnight
Darwin Harbour - good tides this weekend
Bynoe Harbour - fishing well, lots of rock bars, run offs and creeks.
Blue Water - also fishing well offshore
The Darwin Convention Centre plays host to the Heavyweight World Title Fight between Peter 'The Chief' Graham and Julius Long on Saturday 27 February, 2016. Greg and Ali caught up with promoter Mark Ericksen to discuss the championships.
AFLNT chief executive Michael Solomon is calling for women to join the football league.
Athletes from other sports are being encouraged to undergo general testing for a chance to feature in the inaugural national women's league in 2017.
AFL female ambassador Daisy Pearce, who plays for the Demons' women's team will lead the talent search sessions with state academy coaches when she is in the Top End for the AFL fixture in July.
Solomon spoke to Greg and Ali on Wake Up about the testing ... and somehow Ali agreed to participate.
OOH AAH ... Aussie cricket legend Glenn McGrath joined Greg and Ali on Wake Up fresh from Australia Day activities across the Top End.
For Glenn, Australia Day means being with friends and family and enjoying our great relaxed lifestyle.
Glenn also spoke about support for Territory women diagnosed with breast cancer and their families through the provision of McGrath Breast Care Nurses plus his work with YMCA NT.
Story of the week has to go to these two blokes in Queensland who stopped an attempted robbery at an Oporto Chicken shop. Their heroics were recognised on the Today Show with host Karl Stefanovic totally losing it.
It's a good laugh. Enjoy. Greg
Julius 'The Towering Inferno' Long is in training to take on Peter 'The Chief' Graham in Darwin next month for the WBF World Heavyweight Title.
The bout will be a historic first for Darwin because there has never been a World Heavyweight Title fight in the Northern Territory previously.
Long spoke about his training and mental preparations with Greg and Ali in the lead up to the fight at the Darwin Convention Centre on 27 February, 2016.
Cyclists in the NT are allowed to ride side by side (up to two abreast) on the road and are permitted to use the right lane to turn right or perform a U-turn at a roundabout.
The entries are in and this morning Yani put the call out across the airwaves to vote for Darwin's cutest dog.
He told Greg and Ali, the dog with the most votes will be crowned Darwin's cutest and win a stack of doggy treats from Pet Barn Palmerston and Love 'em Liver Treats. Runners up also have the chance of securing prizes from The Furry Godmother and Darwin Pet Spa.
The competition is fierce ... so get voting for your favourite today!
Chief Minister Adam Giles today joined Greg and Ali to reveal the five star Australian music line up for the 14th annual People's Choice BassInTheGrass music festival.
To be held at the Darwin Botanic Gardens on Saturday 21 May 2016, the line up includes Angus and Julia Stone, Bliss n Eso, Boy and Bear, Drapht, Hermitude, RUFUS, SAFIA, Tkay Maidza and Violent Soho.
Tickets for the annual festival are $65 and go on sale Thursday 11 February.
Ali's goal for Greg in 2016 is to get him fit, so she's slowly introducing health and fitness tips into his life.
This morning, Steve Cardona from Fitaz shared his receipe for The Protein Mocha, the ideal smoothie for those seeking to put on muscle, enhance their physiques and improve their health.
Listen to our podcast for the receipe - its surprisingly delicious and had Greg down on the studio floor doing push ups!
Art Your Life director Catie Kirk shared her thoughts with Greg and Ali on the current trend for meal replacements and their unwanted side effects.
She suggests healthy alternatives in a bid to achieve healthy weightloss. Take a listen to our podcast.
I've been regularly caught out napping at work. There's no sympathy from other staff at Mix seemingly oblivious to the fact the I arrive at the radio station at 3.45am Monday to Friday. By 11am I'm starting to feel a little tired. Similar to what a 9am - 5pm worker would feel by 3pm.
I was caught stretching and yawning yesterday at 11.30am when the Manager walked by and asked, 'keeping you awake are we Mr. Vincent'?
Don't get caught napping at your desk like this bloke in the photo. The whole office got in on the joke. Have another coffee instead and have your nanna nap at home.....or in the toilet cubicle. -----Greg
Today is World Cancer Day.
Did you know ovarian cancer is the most lethal of all women's cancers?
This morning Greg and Ali spoke to 'Queen of Cakes' and Ovarian Cancer Australia ambassador Kerry Vincent about the importance of knowing the signs and symptoms of the disease and how we can raise funds for research and a cure.
Take a listen to our chat and find out how you can help during Ovarian Cancer Awareness month.
Meet Darwin's cutest dog.
Kev is a one and a half year old chihuahua cross who lives in Livingstone. He loves chew toys and liver treats.
This morning his owner Tamma was delighted to hear Kev had taken out the title of Darwin's cutest dog.
Listen to Yani tell Tamma the good news on Wake Up with Greg and Ali.
Iron woman Courtney Hancock is the first celebrity ousted from the South African jungle on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
She spoke to Greg and Ali about her brief stint on the reality show. Take a listen to the podcast.

Molly blitzed it around the country on Sunday night.
The miniseries, which concludes this Sunday night (14th Feb) drew a whopping 1.79 million viewers last Sunday night, as the #1 drawcard on the first night of the ratings year.
Things I never knew about Molly.
I always thought Molly was homosexual but the series has Molly's character, played perfectly by Sam Johnson, stating he's bi-sexual.
I also never knew Molly laid a beautiful 'left hander' to the face of John Paul Young outside a Melbourne nightclub.
If you thought you knew a lot about the life of Molly you might be pleasantly surprised about what you have left to learn.
Do yourself a favor and tune-in Sunday night with the rest of Australia.
It's back! My annual Cockteal Party for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
It's all happening at Oaks Elan on Friday 26 February from 5pm to 7pm. There'll be champagne and canapes and awareness of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer. Raffles and prizes are among the highlights plus we'll hear from ovarian cancer survivor and author of 'Battle Scars' Charlene Ericson. And with your help, we'll aim to raise vital funds for cancer research and support.
Tickets are just $35 at the door and includes two complimentary glasses of champagne, canapes and a donation to Ovarian Cancer Australia.
A big thank you to Oaks Elan, graphic designer Breanna Kerle and Janz for their support.
I hope you can join me - Ali
The Oscars will be handed out on Monday February 29 from 11am (Darwin time). Ch 9 will televise the 88th Academy Awards LIVE - Free to air. There are 13 Aussie's who have been nominated and if they manage to take home a golden statuette they'll also be walking out with the biggest 'Oscars Prize Bag' imaginable.
PLUS....A Greg & Ali Mix 104.9 Snow Globe - PRICELESS
A United States Air Force B-52 aircraft has arrived in Darwin to carry out military exercises across the Northern Territory.
The giant aircraft touched down at RAAF Base Darwin on Sunday and will remain in the NT for a week while its pilots carry out training activities.
Ali was yesterday given a rare opportunity to inspect the aircraft from a distance ... and fortunately still has her hearing!
Here's a glimpse of the B-52 coming into Darwin.
The Academy Awards are handed out in over a fortnight's time and here's two movies that don't even get a look-in.
They commence in theatres from Thursday 11th February.
DEADPOOL (MA15+) starring Ryan Reynolds. Fans of this franchise will be taking the day off school/work to be first in line. If you want to see a freak show be at the box office at the first screening. Good news for fans is the film studio have already given the green light for a sequel.
ZOOLANDER 2 (M) starring a cast of thousands (Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson, Olivia Munn, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kristen Wiig, Penelope Cruz) . Do you feel you've seen the best of this comedy from the trailer? Probably. Although, any film, magazine, TV show that has Kristen Wiig in it...I'll watch or buy it. I'm head over heels for this talented comedian/actress. Can't wait to see more.
Must see films - The Revenant. Spotlight. The Danish Girl. Carol. The Hateful Eight (R)....although I saw two kids under 15 yrs old in the cinema.
Please avoid - Sisters (American comedy is dead).
Plain vanilla Choc-tops are still the best...$5.50 is a rip off though.
