Vale Joe Sands
Former radio programmer Joe Sands has passed away today (March 16) on the Gold Coast, after a battle with cancer.
Joe was a former Program Director of Sea FM Gold Coast, Announcer at B105 Brisbane, Wave FM Wollongong and 4MK Mackay.
Prior to that he was a student at the Australian Film, Television and Radio School.
After his successful radio career, in 2000 Joe moved into advertising and marketing founding his own agency on the Gold Coast specialising in tourism and property.
This business ultimately merged with SMART in 2007 to become SmartSands, before being bought by IPG and becoming part of McCann Worldgroup, with Joe serving as Queensland Managing Director since that time.
Joe is survived by his wife Renae and son Jackson.
