Radio veteran Leroy Brown to step into the Content Director’s role at Geelong.
Geelong’s Christian radio station 96three has announced the appointment of Leroy Brown to the role of content director.
CEO David Day said he was delighted with the decision.
“In my opinion Leroy is without peer, bringing to the role knowledge and experience in both commercial and community radio,” he said. “His creative and imaginative mind will certainly bring a new energetic focus right across all our media platforms.
“I eagerly look forward to working closely with Leroy in shaping 96three to be a platform to share our faith and serve our local community.”
Leroy said he was looking forward to starting the new role in early August.
“In a world where noise can drown out the voice of truth, 96three is a beacon of positivity and faith,” he said. “I am rapt to contribute to a station that not only entertains but uplifts, spreading the timeless message of hope and love. Together we will make a difference in our local community, radiating the transformative power of biblical values.”
Leroy is a seasoned veteran of Australian radio, having worked in the industry for more than 25 years and having “been round Australia at least once”.
From his humble beginnings putting together a request show after school on community radio station 5YYY in his hometown of Whyalla, to a syndicated night show with the Triple M network across Australia, he’s done the rounds.
Leroy has won many awards for his creativity in radio with the most notably being an ACRA (Australian Commercial Radio Award) for his work with the K-Rock Geelong Breakfast show for his documentary on homelessness.
He has also published the book Air Heads – A guide to great radio, his own personal account of starting off and making a career in radio. It’s considered by many to be a ‘must read’ for those starting out or wanting to improve their radio skills.
