Glenn Johns – Announcer
Cracking his first gig at 5RM in the Riverland in South Australia late last century, Glenn has travelled far and wide gaining experience across the width and breadth of this sunburnt country in regional and capital city markets. Suffice to say he has worked every state except WA over the past 32 years.
Before joining the reprobates in FNQ, he helped set up an English radio station on the Thai island of Phuket with a multi-national cast and completed a 9-month contract at 7XS in Queenstown on the west coast of Tasmania – he is still thawing out.
“AJ” Adrian Harding – Announcer (Mareeba 4AM & Innisfail 4KZ)
Dan Anderson – Announcer (Kool FM)
Dan hates the cold so when he heard Kool FM was looking for a new breakfast announcer he jumped at the chance to escape Victorian winters!
Each day between 6 and 10am, Dan brings you laughs and a bit of silliness plus today’s best music. Dan is a qualified journalist, which is useful as he also compiles and reads our local news. When he’s not at the radio station Dan enjoys exploring our region, volunteering with the Innisfail PCYC and Friends of The Con, sleeping in and drinking copious amounts of tea.
Dan looks forward to hearing about what’s going on from Bellenden Ker to Cardwell and everywhere in between during the brekky show – get in touch via email firstname.lastname@example.org or give him a call during the show on 40 617 983.
