Dream come true: Brad Wood joins The Fox as one of 3 new appointments


A long held dream has come true for Brad Wood, who’s just been announced as the new Afternoons Announcer and Operations Manager at Melbourne’s 101.9 The Fox, one of three new appointments at the station.

For the past seven years, Wood has worked with the Hit Network’s B105 Brisbane as the Workday announcer, accomplishing several #1 ratings results in the role as well as contributing to the station’s strategy and programming.

Wood says “I feel incredibly excited and grateful to come home to Melbourne and become the newest member of the Fox family!”

“From listening in my bedroom, hassling Tracy & Matt and Barry Bissell for requests, to community radio in Melton where I tried to emulate that famous Fox magic, my lifelong dream has just come true.”

“In my role I look forward to joining our team and building on our unmatched dedication to our city, Melbourne – the greatest city in the world!”

Gemma Prendergast joins The Fox as new Senior Producer for the Breakfast show Fifi, Fev & Nick.

She joins The Fox from Nova 100, where she worked as Senior Producer on the Drive show for the past six years and prior to that was Assistant Producer and Digital Content Producer for various Nova networked shows.

The new Content Assistant for The Fox will be Emily Allen, who will also work across the Hit and Triple M networks. She was previously with ARN working as a Promotion & Event Specialist at Chilli FM and LAFM.

Prendergast says “I’m truly beyond thrilled to be joining Melbourne’s very-own Fox FM and the Fifi, Fev & Nick team. I’m chomping at the bit to get stuck into it and officially become a member of the iconic Fox family.”

Allen says “I’m super keen to be starting in this exciting role and I can’t wait to meet everyone once I’ve made the leap across the Bass Strait!”

Hit Network Head of Hit Metro Content and Fox Content Director Amanda Lee says “The Fox has incredible momentum in Melbourne and I’m sure that Brad, Gemma and Emily will be valuable additions to the team.”

All appointments are effective immediately.

Bradley is one of Australia’s most passionate jocks, most creative minds and one of the worlds best humans.

I cannot wait to see the goals he’ll be kicking at this joint!

Brissie is gonna miss him.
