ACRA winning Leroy Brown returns to the Geelong airwaves with The Leroy Brown Breakfast Show, from 6am on Monday 11 September. Seven years after leaving K-Rock breakfast, the separation from the people and the community of Geelong and the Surf Coast became too great. So, Leroy has returned to a place which he loves and cannot wait to be part of again.
Leroy said, ‘96three is a place which can bring so much hope to our community. I just love interacting with people, sharing their stories, helping those who need our help and being available to bring a positive message to start the day. Breakfast is considered by some to be the most important meal of the day. I want to send out an energetic message based on biblical values each morning. There can be no better start to the day.’
David Day – Chief Executive Officer of Geelong Christian Media Inc. (96three) said,
‘Leroy has an amazing natural ability to connect and relate to people. He loves Geelong, love the Crows (sadly) and loves creating radio that encourages and inspires. He also has the role of Content Director here at 96three. This is his primary responsibility to lead, develop and nurture both the current and future on-air team. I am supremely confident that the vision and mission of 96three is in safe hands.’
