Matt Newell rejoins Hit100.9 in Hobart
Former radio presenter Matt Newell will return to Hobart’s Hit100.9 following a five-year break from the station.
Newell will return to the network as a casual announcer.
He previously spent three years at the station as a Workday announcer and Breakfast producer. At the time of his departure in 2016, the reality TV star turned broadcaster said he was joining the team at Harcourts Hobart.
Newell will be presenting from 1pm Weekdays, coinciding with Hit’s $15,000 Sing Your Way competition.
“It’s great to be back at Hit100.9 where my radio journey first began back in 2013,” he said.
“Tassie is my home, and I love it dearly, so to be speaking with my fellow Taswegians again is a privilege and I am very grateful. Call me on 13 10 60 and say hey.”
Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) Hobart content director Phil Bradley said the team was excited to have Newell return.
“Matty brings his passion for local radio, which started here at Hit in 2013,” Bradley said.
“He’s an excellent communicator who loves talking with locals in the city where he was born and bred.”
