Daryl Reader to hang up the headphones after 4 decades in radio


After 40 years in the industry, Daryl Reader‘s radio career is coming to an end.

The popular weekday host at bay 93.9 FM will finish up at the station at the end of this month.

Reader has spent the last three decades working in his hometown of Geelong.

He’s seen plenty of changes since starting out at Wagga Wagga’s 2WG at the age of eighteen.

In a social media post, Reader says “I have had the opportunity to work with some of not only the best in the industry, but ones I listened to as I was growing up, the likes of Peter Harrison, Karl van Est and Kevin Hillier to name a few, and many, many more.”

“For those of you who may have heard the story, the book will be called ‘The Girl with One Leg,’ but that’s for another time, along with a lot more stories.”

“The one thing I can say – in an industry where not all can end on their terms – at least I have.”

“Stay tuned for what’s next.”

Reader is an established voiceover artist and MC.

For several years, he co-hosted bay FM’s Drive show The Catch Up with Roxie Bennett, who left the station at the end of 2022.
