Josh Olek joins Drive on K rock
Oz Made host Josh Olek has landed a new gig as the co-host of K rock 95.5 Drive.
Josh, who won the 2018 ACRA for Best Music Presenter (Provincial), has worked at K rock for three years now and is excited to be co-hosting The Departure Lounge with Leanne ‘Stampsy’ Stamps.
“Stoked to be chatting for longer than 16 seconds at a time every four songs,” he said.
“And doubly stoked to get to hang out with a bloody legend in Stampsy every arvo.
“Geelong and the Surf Coast has welcomed me with open arms, and I can’t wait to drive all of these incredible human beings home!”
“It’s a natural progression for us; we already sit next to each other, buy each other coffee and laugh over Facebook memes,” added Stampsy.
“Josh will be the nerd-burger yin to my clumsy yang. I’ll talk cocktails while he explains Nintendo’s latest release. Just hope the studio soundproofing can withstand our laughter.”
K rock’s new Drive lineup with kick off from Tuesday.
“Josh will be stepping into what is already a very well run drive product,” said content director James Speed.
“The show is a fun, entertaining and really local program that engages our audience
“I’m looking forward to hearing Stampsy and Josh on air together; both extremely dedicated radio people who will put 100 percent into creating cut-through radio and big moments.
“K rock 95.5 remains one of a few regional stations with a local breakfast and drive show entertaining our market as they start and end the day.”
