High five for host

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

COMO-based ra­dio sta­tion 98five’s new drive show host will in­tro­duce a dis­tinct Kiwi flavour, with New Zealand-born Jezial An­der­son jump­ing on air.

98five gen­eral man­ager Be­van Jones said lis­ten­ers would love An­der­son’s cheeky hu­mour.

“It’s funny how the right peo­ple come to 98five at the right time,” Mr Jones said.

“A cou­ple of months ago, a cheeky Kiwi fel­low con­tacted me say­ing he would love to get back into Chris­tian me­dia.

“Two months later we called him. I think our drive lis­ten­ers will grow to love him quickly.”

An­der­son said he was ex­cited to bring his up­beat and en­er­getic flavour to the drive show.

“I’ve al­ways had a thing for talk­ing, much to my teach­ers’ dis­gust, so I’m glad I’ve found a place where I can talk for a liv­ing,” An­der­son said.

“I’m now stoked to be work­ing for 98five.”

An­der­son re­places for­mer host Chris­tine Layton, who ac­cepted a role in Al­bany at ABC Great Southern’s morn­ing show.
