Christian O’Connell’s new podcast coming ‘later this year’
Australian Radio Network has revealed that Christian O’Connell plans to launch a new podcast.
O’Connell, the host of Melbourne’s #1 FM breakfast show on GOLD104.3, previewed the show at a much-hyped virtual festival on Thursday by Carat and MKTG.
Don’t rush to podcast platforms just yet, however. ARN said more details about the new show, titled Stuff Of Legends, won’t be announced until “later this year”.
Stuff Of Legends will see O’Connell chat with some of the world’s funniest storytellers, to share and discuss three treasured objects from their lives.
“I’ve had this idea for a good couple of years as I wanted to do a show that was something different to me doing all the talking,” said O’Connell of the new podcast.
Initial guests confirmed to appear are Russell Brand, Celeste Barber and Ricky Gervais.
“There are many more guests to reveal and I can’t wait to share their stories,” added O’Connell.
The new podcast follows the recent news from ARN that O’Connell’s top-rating breakfast show will be chopped up for a daily national night show on the Pure Gold Network.
He also shared hosting duties with David Campbell on Michael Guidinski’s Music From The Home Front concert that aired on Nine last month.
