Steve Price launches Veteran of the Day podcast
Radio and TV personality and commentator Steve Price will front a podcast for national veteran support organisation, Wounded Heroes.
Veteran of the Day will highlight the experiences of Australians who have served at home and abroad for the Army, Navy or Airforce.
Price will talk to those who were there, to the relatives of those who have since passed, and to those in command today.
The podcast aims to inspire, emotionally move and encourage all Australians to support current serving military personnel and those who have gone before them.
Price said: “The interviews with veterans tell stories of outstanding bravery, national pride, mateship and the struggle to stay alive. It’s been a very confronting and emotional series to produce.”
Martin Shaw from Wounded Heroes said the podcast should help veterans understand they’re not alone, as well as give the general public a gauge on what the group might be going though.
“By opening the door to the past we have found Australian veterans are willing to share their experiences and stories, and what better way than this to honour them? As the stories unfold, we get to learn of other veteran experiences and some of those who are no longer with us. Sharing their story has healing power,” he said.
Talentcorp noted the podcast is available for sponsorship, the proceeds of which would go to the not-for-profit Wounded Heroes.
Price used to host Nights with Macquarie Media (now Nine Radio), however then moved into Afternoons across Sydney’s 2GB and Brisbane’s 4BC. He did not return to Nine Radio in 2020, however, and was replaced by Deb Knight.
He still regularly appears on Channel 10’s The Project.
