Following Ben Cullen’s decision to pursue business opportunities outside the Australian radio industry, Grant Broadcasters Sunshine Coast has been given the opportunity to bring former B105 Music Director and Announcer Jake Powell into the family.
Ben’s contribution to the station can’t be understated. Having been part of the team for 12 years he is a part of the fabric of the radio station and will be greatly missed from a personal and professional point of view from everyone on staff. We appreciate Ben's work ethic and outstanding skills and wish him all the best in his new endeavors.
The silver lining to Ben's departure is the opportunity to welcome Jake to the family here on the Sunshine Coast. While other networks are shedding staff or not replacing those that leave, Grant Broadcasters are committed to our local footprints around the country.
Jake's experience, passion for the industry, and connection to the Sunshine Coast region mean he will be a fantastic fit for the team.
Jake says, “The Sunshine Coast has always been a second home to me so I am very excited to be a part of Ryan and Chris’ team at Hot91. I am very thankful for this opportunity and looking forward to being within walking distance to Sunshine Plaza.”
Chris says, “I’m extremely excited to be working with Jake and glad we’re are able to help one of the brightest young talents in the industry continue on his journey.”
Jake's first day is November 16.
