CRA reveal 2019 ACRAs hosts, presenters & performers

Staff Writer

Commercial Radio Australia has unveiled the full list of hosts, presenters and performers for next week’s Australian Commercial Radio Awards in Brisbane.

Returning are Chris Taylor and Andrew Hansen of The Chaser fame. It’s their fourth consecutive year hosting the radio industry’s nights of nights.

“Please don’t mention in the press release that we’re hosting again,” said Taylor and Hansen in a joint statement. “We’re going to host the event wearing elaborate animal masks, and then invite the audience to guess who we are.”

Some of Australian music’s brightest stars will also perform at the awards on Saturday.

Global country music-crossover sensation Morgan Evans, ARIA Award-winner Samantha Jade and hip hop artist Illy. All three are very familiar to radio with active singles in the market.

“What could be a better way to celebrate commercial radio in Australia than by showcasing not only some of our best radio talent but also some of the amazing and diverse local artists whose songs are played on radio stations across the country?” said CRA chief executive Joan Warner.

Mick I think you mean Christian O’Connel? I didn’t really like how he stole Bianca’s moment. I’m sure she didn’t mind, and I’m sure that wasn’t his intention but it didn’t come across that great.
