Rudd joins Mitchell on 3AW
Former PM Kevin Rudd will be a regular contributor on 3AW mornings with Neil Mitchell, who said:
"This has been months in the making. I approached him a while ago and mentioned that Sir Robert Menzies, when he was dumped as Prime Minister, did a series of fireside chats to the people. 80 radio speeches in the early forties, also known as speeches to the forgotten people.
So, why not? Kevin Rudd, dumped, can do the same thing through interviews and commentary.
I have tried for several years now to get Julia Gillard on the program regularly. She continues to avoid me, that is her right. So be it."
