SCA Group Content Director, James Speed, has announced the appointment of Nic Kelly to Hit101.3 Announcer and Operations. Nic hails from the Coast, born and bred, he is passionate about all things that are local and his passion for music and radio sees one of the Coast’s best return to entertaining listeners on the Hit101.3 airwaves.
Nic is no stranger to the microphone or music industry, having interviewed some of the world’s leading musical acts including, Dua Lipa, Kylie Minogue, 5 Seconds of Summer and more. Nic comes from the national Hit Network nights shift where he has been filling in across the country.
“I was born in North Gosford Hospital, grew up in Terrigal and was baptised on the dancefloor of Sirens, it’s a proper full circle experience to come back home a decade into my career and talk to my people on Hit101.3 every day,” Nic said.
“After what the last year has thrown at everyone, spending more time in the place I call home has reminded me what really matters. I can’t wait to be creative with the brilliant people around me, put a smile on dials, love the place I live in and gear up for the best summer of all time on the Cenny.”
James Speed said: “I won’t be alone in saying that Nic is one of the most talented announcers in Australian radio. Already an icon to many, Nic approaches every day as an opportunity to genuinely connect to listeners, and truly lives and breathes the Hit brand.
“Nic is a Central Coast local, so his knowledge of the area is outstanding. His deep passion for music and absolute focus on the operations of radio will see Nic become a wonderful asset for us heading into a busy summer and beyond.”
Nic will officially land on the Hit101.3 airwaves from 9am-1pm on Monday, 30 August.
