In­tern home to present brekky ra­dio

Albany Advertiser - - NEWS -

ABC Re­gional WA au­di­ences can look for­ward to a fresh pro­gram line-up in the new year.

Eoin Cameron In­tern­ship re­cip­i­ent Katie McAl­lis­ter will present ABC Great South­ern Break­fast in 2019.

McAl­lis­ter be­gan her in­tern role at the ABC in Septem­ber last year, based in Perth be­fore re­turn­ing to her home town of Al­bany.

She said the new role was a priv­i­lege, to be broad­cast­ing across the Great South­ern to tight-knit com­mu­ni­ties.

“I feel so hon­oured to have started my ca­reer with the ABC as the Eoin Cameron Memo­rial In­tern, and to be broad­cast­ing from the Eoin Cameron stu­dio is a bit sur­real,” she said.

“Fol­low­ing An­drew Collins on brekky is more ter­ri­fy­ing than a fu­ture of 4am starts, but I feel ridicu­lously grate­ful to be lis­ten­ing to and shar­ing sto­ries from a beau­ti­ful com­mu­nity in one of the most stun­ning parts of the world.”

ABC Great South­ern break­fast pre­sen­ter Collins will be ex­tend­ing his reach to present the WA Re­gional Drive pro­gram from Jan­uary 7.
