The first few weeks of Sunraysia’s newest breakfast show are officially over, with Michael “Billows” Billings being joined by former Darwin Hot100 Announcer Amy Hegedus.
The duo hit the ground running in their first few weeks, covering everything from what not to feed your baby, to teaching yourself to drive a manual car through YouTube tutorials. Both are Radio Training Institute alum and have around 10 years of on air experience under their belts.
The launch was not without its bumps though, with Billows’ wife going into labor 6 weeks earlier than expected, and giving birth two weeks into the show launch. There are still some hard roads ahead for the team, with the newborn premature and still currently in hospital, and once she is out Billows will be off on paternity leave with Amy flying solo for a few weeks.
However, Content Director Luke “Becks” Toohey is excited about the show, and believes the duo will be a great addition to the Hit brand. “We are thrilled to have Amy join the team and offer a new DNA to the show which compliments the already stellar line up on Hit, and I know Amy and Billows are going to build a great relationship with listeners in Mildura and surrounds”.
Listen in to Amy and Billows on hit99.5 weekday mornings 6-9am.
