2021 is 4CA’s 85th year serving the Cairns community and their commitment to being the leaders in local content for the region is only increasing with the addition of “The King Review”.
The hour-long weekly program will make its debut as a permanent fixture on the 4CA line-up from Friday, February 12 following a successful six-week series of shows in the lead up to the Queensland election in October 2020.
North Queensland media and politics personality Gavin King is excited to be hosting this unique, no holds barred current affairs show.
“In this age of uncertainty, fake news and information overload, it’s more important than ever for the media to provide unbiased, hard-hitting and insightful news and views to the community.
"Grant Broadcasters has a clear commitment to regional journalism so it’s an absolute honour to be part of the station’s great local line-up.” King said.
Starting his career as a journalist with News Corp in 2003, King has covered politics and business for The Cairns Post, Sunday Mail and Centralian Advocate and worked in senior editorial leadership roles before making the leap into state politics in 2012.
He became the first – and still the only - Liberal candidate to ever win the seat of Cairns and was elevated to the outer Cabinet as Assistant Minister for Tourism upon his election and now he hopes to serve the community by keeping them informed and entertained.
“I have always loved the medium of radio – it’s a direct, unfiltered connection into people’s daily lives and it’s a privilege to be working with the awesome 4CA team on the new show,” King said.
The King Review will dig deep into a wide variety of topics and issues facing the region and ask the tough questions of a range of guests, including local, statewide and national heavy hitters in business, politics and the community along with new voices sharing fresh perspectives.
Grant Broadcaster’s Cairns General Manager Paul Woodhouse said, “At 4CA we’re very proud of our role of informing and connecting the community and Gavin’s new show will only strengthen that.
The King Review will air on 4CA 846 at midday on Fridays and 10am on Sundays and is available online at any time on 4ca.com.au
