Jack Post extends contract with ARN for four more years
Jack Post’s future with ARN has been locked in, with the radio talent signing with ARN for four more years.
Post will remain part of GOLD104.3’s Breakfast program, The Christian O’Connell Show, which currently leads the FM ratings.
When Post joined the program back in 2018 ahead of its Australian launch, he said he was looking forward to riding on the coattails of O’Connell’s success.
“I’m excited to continue executing my simple career strategy: only work with radio’s most talented presenters and see how far their success can carry you,” he said in a statement at the time.
“I’ve been a fan of Christian’s show for a long time and I can’t wait to see how Melbourne embraces him.”
Now that the show is three years in and leading the FM market, Post’s sentiment is similar.
“I am so pleased to continue working with GOLD and The Christian O’Connell Show. Christian is a joy to work with and I have learnt so much from him. I’ve grown as a presenter and a person. With our newsreader, Patsy, and the team behind the scenes we are a strong unit. I hope we continue on for many more years, there is a great chemistry in this group,” he said.
O’Connell said one of the joys of working on Australian radio in recent years, had been watching the meteoric rise of Post.
“He’s just shown what a world class talent he is, emerging little a butterfly from the cocoon of Hamish and Andy. Does that make me the butterfly master of radio? Not for me to say. But yes. It’s a joy working with Jack, we are generations apart and he’s an enigma wrapped in an enigma in a glaze of enigma, but has such white-hot talent. Watch out Australia, we ride again for many more years,” O’Connell said.
Post also continues to work on the Hamish & Andy podcast. Hamish Blake and Andy Lee recently extended the contract for their podcasts with SCA’s LiSTNR.
