Clare Bowditch joins 774 ABC Melbourne for 2016

Staff Writer

Clare Bowditch will be the new Afternoon Program present for 774 ABC Melbourne in 2016.

Clare has a diverse background outside being known for her music career. She is a published writer,  a guest Q & A panellist, a businesswoman, an actor and soon radio presenter.

In welcoming Clare to the station Warwick Tiernan, ABC Local Manager in Melbourne said, “Clare will be a fresh, new voice on Melbourne radio. She is a gifted artist and story teller, whose warmth, intelligence and conversational approach will help build connections with contemporary Melbourne, and audiences across Victoria. Having Clare on the station is a win for 774, but more importantly it’s a win for our listeners who will no doubt enjoy spending time in the afternoon with her. We can’t wait.”

Clare has joined the 774 team but that won’t put a hold on her musical career, with a new album scheduled for release in 2016.

“I’m over the moon that 774 have invited someone like me to host Afternoons. It’s not only humbling it’s also a sign of exciting times ahead. I’m from a family of “mad keen” life-long ABC listeners. I’ve always sought out good conversations, so the chance to spend afternoons talking with Victorians on the things that matter most to them, and the things that light them up, is a brilliant one.”

Clare Bowditch starts Monday 25 January 2016 and replaces Richard Stubbs on Afternoons on 774 ABC Melbourne and ABC Victoria, Monday – Thursday from 1-3pm.  A new program is also in development for Friday Afternoons
