Whippy was loving being the newest member of the Gold team, that was until Christian O’Connell showed up and ruined it. 😂
I really should stop talking about myself in third person...
I started in radio in my home town of Newcastle when I was 13, learning as much as I could while still at school. My first full time job was at NXFM in Newcastle, then it was off to B105 in Brisbane, SeaFM on the Gold Coast, part of the launch on air team at Nova 100 Melbourne, back to B105 Brisbane, part of the launch team of Nova 106.9 in Brisbane, back Melbourne to work at Mix 101.1, part of the launch team for KIIS 101.1, and finally now at Gold 104.3. If you’re still reading good on you! How boring.
Unlike Huggy and Gav I don’t really have any music cred, I’m not really an albums man and I don’t know the ins and outs of every track, I just love the big hits, which is perfect because that’s what we play on Gold.
My AFL team is the Lions purely because I was in Brisbane when I got into AFL and got to know a few of the players through working on the radio. It was a great time to jump on the band wagon as they were winning premierships.
I’m a massive Supercars fan and I a Holden man. My team is the old HRT now called Mobile 1 Boost Mobile Racing or Walkenshaw Racing.
Whippy can be heard on-air from 1pm to 4pm weekdays on GOLD104.3.
