4BC announce new drive host
4BC in Brisbane have appointed journo and Channel 7 sports presenter Ben Davis as their drive host in 2014.
This comes after the departure of Gary Hardgrave from the Brisbane talk station.
“What I love about radio is its immediacy. I have always been a keen follower of news, so the move to Drive feels right, especially after 18 years at 7 learning from some of the best in the business, the likes of Kay McGrath, Pat Welsh and the late David Fordham. I’ve learnt how to get to the heart of a story, and ask the tough questions,” Ben said.
“The program will focus on the issues that affect us day to day. But overall it will be all about the city I love – Brisbane, the best in the world. I also love talk-back and the ability to share stories with listeners really excites me.”
4BC GM Anthony Frangi said:
“Ben Davis is a real talent, with energy to boot. Having Ben at the helm, Drive will be a highly-charged, informative show packed with plenty of punch."
“Ben also has a real connection to the community; he has been loved by 7 News viewers for years, so he comes to us with a high degree of respect and credibility.”
Ben will start in early January.
