Julie-anne Sprague heads to 6PR Afternoons

Perth journalist Julie-anne Sprague will be joining 6PR as the new Afternoons host from April 19. 

Julie has a journalism career spanning over 20 years and says she’s now, “looking forward to joining an incredible broadcast team at 6PR.”

Appearing on various 6PR programs in the past, Julie most recently worked as the Editor of the Rich List at The Australian Financial Review.

“As a former WA bureau chief for The Australian Financial Review, I’m looking forward to getting stuck into the issues that matter to the people of Perth, to keep people informed and entertained and to have a bit of a laugh along the way,” said Julie.

“While I’ve spent 20 years in the newspaper game, I have a long association with 6PR. I owe a vote of thanks to the hugely talented and pugnacious Bob Maumill, who almost a decade ago took me under his wing and showed me the broadcast craft he was the master at. More recently I got to have a bit of fun with Millsy when he sat in the Afternoons chair.”

“It’s such a pleasure talking to the program’s listeners and I very much value all their tips and advice, especially as I navigate life as a working mum with a young child.”

Content Manager, Emily White said, “Julie-anne has been a great contributor to 6PR for many years and we’re excited to welcome her as our new host of the Afternoons program.”

“In her reporting career, Julie-anne has covered everything from the WA Mining industry, government policy to food and wine, plus she’s a mad footy fan and loves to have a laugh so our listeners are in for a real treat.”

“I’d also like to take the opportunity to thank Jo McManus who has very kindly stepped in to host Afternoons since Millsy’s move to Breakfast in November. Jo will remain a vital part of 6PR and the Arvos show, filling-in when Julie-anne is on leave.”

Julie will begin the role of 6PR Afternoons host on April 19.
