Beccy Cole joins ABC Radio
Multiple Golden Guitar and ARIA Award winner, Beccy Cole, will present ABC Radio’s flagship country music program, Saturday Night Country.
Her first show will be broadcast on Saturday, February 13.
The South Australian singer/ songwriter has been performing for over 25 years, and said she had “never been without company” after a Saturday gig due to the show’s companionship.
“As with the two previous hosts, I share an absolute passion for our genre as well as great enthusiasm for sharing new music from Aussie artists old and new. I am absolutely thrilled to be the new host of Saturday Night Country on the ABC and to join the great team behind the show. I can’t wait to keep you company and keep you up-to-date with the latest news of the country music world,” she said.
Cole also paid tribute to previous host, Felicity Urquhart, who ended a 10-year stint with the program last year.
“Felicity has left incredible country boots to fill, her level of warmth and dedication to entertaining the listening audience will be a hard act to follow but I’m ready to jump in and take on the role,” she said.
Saturday Night Country can be heard on ABC Regional Radio Saturdays from 10:00pm – 1:00am, via mobile on the ABC Listen app and on ABC Country – available on digital radios and TVs.
