Elka Whalan joins ARN for the Games
Former Olympic Swimming Champion Elka Whalan will be joining ARN’s Network news team as a commentator during the Games in August.
Sydney and Brisbane News Director for the KIIS and Pure Gold networks Deborah Clay said “Every time I see Elka, I walk away feeling as though I’ve been in the presence of somebody special. Elka’s own Olympic achievements, experience as a media personality and her uniquely positive outlook make her a perfect, engaging and fun addition to the ARN news offering during the Games. Elka will be keeping our listeners up to date with regular commentary and updates when all the action kicks off on August 5.”
“The Games are always such a special time,” said Elka. “ For so many athletes competing it’s the culmination of years, sometimes a lifetime, of dedication and for everyone at home watching it’s a great spectacle of real life triumph, gutsy competition and sometimes heartbreak unfolding right on your screens. I’m thrilled to be part of ARN’s news team, bringing commentary and updates for audiences across the KIIS and Pure Gold networks nationally.”
Elka will be heard nationally across the ARN Pure Gold and KIIS networks from August 5 to 21.
