‘A thrilling opportunity:’ New Capital Radio Network role for 3GG’s Trent McCurdy


After 8 years announcing and producing at Gippsland’s 3GG, Trent McCurdy is taking up a new role as Network Imaging Director for the Capital Radio Network.

Describing it as his dream job, Trent will be based in his home studio full time while looking after Capital stations in Gippsland, Perth, Canberra, Goulburn and the Snowy Mountains.

Trent started at 3GG in 2015 as announcer and commercial producer.

Prior to that, he spent 13 years at the ACE Radio Network.

Trent tells Radio Today 3GG holds fond memories for him.

“I’ll miss talking to Gippsland’s passionate 3GG listeners each day. They’ve been such a source of comfort and connection, particularly over the last few years.”

Trent says he’ll also miss working with Program Manager and Breakfast Announcer Andrew Deak, and doing daily segments with 3GG journalist Lance White each weekday morning.

“Deaksy is a great operator and legend of Gippsland radio.”

“Lance is by far one of the best journalists working in the industry in the country. He has been a great inspiration to me.”

“The new role – which I’ve been chasing for years – is based out of my newly completed, purpose-built home studio.”

Trent says the Network Imaging Director role will allow him to work with the Capital team to create a fresh, new sound across its stations.

It also enables him to settle into a space where he can work uninterrupted, while maximising the hours in each workday.

“This is the biggest step in my career and I am thrilled to be given such an incredible opportunity off the back of last year’s Siren Award nomination and ACRA nominations for Best Achievement in Production and Best Multimedia Execution.”

“I’ve been producing for years (for radio and freelance) and working hard in the VO field and my passion for this sector is still bursting at the seams.”

Trent (who’s also arguably Australia’s most prolific collector of all things Star Wars) is looking forward to the new work-from-home arrangement.

“I won’t miss the 4.30am alarms or the 8.5 hours commuting from Traralgon to Warragul each week.”

“I get to do the job I love with the added bonus of hanging out with my cat Mushka all day.”

“The only drawback is the proximity to the pantry.”

If roles in radio always go to the “best” person, can someone please explain to me why there are more men in these positions than women?

Such a nice guy! I had the pleasure of working (over phone & email) with Trent when I was at Snow FM in 2016.

The home studio setup looks awesome!
