Natalie ‘Herbie’ Herbstreit joins K rock Drive program
Natalie ‘Herbie’ Herbstreit will join Josh Jeans for K rock 95.5’s Drive show in Geelong.
Herbstreit started her radio career with Grant Broadcasters in Port Augusta, but subsequently moved to Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) to broadcast across the Riverina and Goulburn Valley.
She was part of the collateral damage of SCA’s decision to axe 19 regional Breakfast shows in August last year.
Herbstreit could barely contain her excitement at being back behind the microphone.
“I’m absolutely leaping over the full moon to be joining the K rock family,” she said. “Working in Geelong has always been a dream of mine, so I can’t wait to see what content Josh and I can create.”
Grant Broadcasters’ group content director, Ryan Rathbone, said he’s looking forward to what the duo can achieve under the leadership of newly appointed regional content director Barry Keohane.
“Herbie is an exciting emerging talent and the naturally organic chemistry with Josh in off-air trials was worth exploring further,” he added.
Jeans said he’s excited to work with Herbstreit.
“She’s got great banter and is no stranger to Geelong and the Surf Coast. I have no doubt she will fit in perfectly. I can definitely see her becoming a regular along Pako” he said.
Herbie and Josh will broadcast live from K rock 95.5’s Geelong studios 3pm – 7pm weekdays from April 12 and are committed to creating unique local content, Grant Broadcasters said.
