She previously featured on the second season of The Bachelor and later starred in The Bachelorette before landing her own radio gig, Rove and Sam, on 2DayFM alongside veteran radio presenter Rove McManus.
The show was axed from its prime time slot after 12 months and transferred to a 7-8pm late night slot amid abysmally low ratings and negative public response.
The evening programme lasted just under six months and was formally wound up in late 2017.

Did she end up finding love on The Bachelor?
In the series two season finale, The Bachelor contestant and Perth-based real estate agent Blake Garvey proposed to then 25-year-old Frost in a romantic gesture on location in South Africa.
But just five weeks after their engagement, Garvey revealed his true feelings in a meeting with Frost and the show’s producers by bluntly declaring: 'I want to break up with Sam.'
Speaking to Cleo magazine at the time, Frost said: 'We went from having a chat about what to expect after the finale aired, to Blake saying he wanted to end things with me.'
The stunner admitted to have 'lost' herself after Garvey’s shocking admission, and struggled emotionally, mentally and physically for some time afterwards.
Frost sparked debate while appearing on both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette for her rapid weight gain and weight loss.
She told WHO magazine her slimmed down physique was the result of ramping up her exercise regimen and giving up alcohol, after the reality star binned the booze for her morning radio presenting gig on 2DayFM.
What about on The Bachelorette?
Sam met and fell in love with construction manager Sasha Mielczarek on the first series of The Bachelorette in 2015.
The couple went on to enjoy a long distance relationship for a year and a half, with Sam based in Sydney for her radio gig and Sasha living on the New South Wales coast for his work.
The duo announced their separation over Christmas 2016 with a joint statement which read:
'After 18 months together, Sam Frost and Sasha Mielczarek have come to a mutual decision to end their relationship.
'It is important to stress that there is no bitterness or scandal. They have just come to the realisation that the best way forward is to separate.'
In her first comment on their split, Frost told WHO magazine: 'There is a very good reason why I don’t speak to Sasha. He knows why and I know why and I want to keep it between us.'
Sasha later vehemently denied rumors of infidelity, telling WHO magazine the main reason for their break up was distance.

Had Sam Frost done any acting prior to being on Home and Away?
Frost was first asked to audition for the role of Jasmine Delaney on the hit show while competing on Hell’s Kitchen Australia, despite having no formal acting experience at the time.
Her casting attracted criticism from many prominent figureheads in the Australian entertainment industry due to her lack of training, but Frost was defended by many of her Home and Away co-stars and went on to receive a Logie nomination for Most Popular New Talent.
So who is Jasmine Delaney on Home and Away?
Jasmine Delaney is a fictional character from the long-running Australian soap series Home and Away.
Her introduction to the show happened during the season finale on 18 December 2017, during a car crash which kills police officer Kat Chapman who was portrayed by Chilean-born model Pia Miller.
Jasmine is instantly befriended by Leah Patterson (played by Ada Nicodemou) who stays with her during her recovery from the car crash and tells her that Kat’s death is not her fault.
Delaney’s initial storyline involved the arrival of her abusive ex-boyfriend David (played by Jack Ellis) who has been stalking her.
He takes Jasmine and close friend Leah hostage, a scenario which Sam Frost admitted was difficult for her to film.
She later moves in with Patterson and finds work as a nurse at Summer Bay hospital.
With her girl next door looks and bouncy blonde hair, Jasmine embodies a kind, trusting yet naïve addition to Summer Bay.
Jasmine’s character has been involved in numerous relationships with Summer Bay residents, including Mason Morgan (played by Orpheus Pledger), Colby Thorne (played by Tim Franklin) and Robbo (played by Jake Ryan) who she became engaged to.
Speaking of Jasmine, Frost has described her as a beach-loving, typical Aussie girl with a good heart who goes out of her way to avoid stepping on people’s toes.
