Former Coffs radio host wins award

FORMER Coffs Harbour CHY 104.1 radio host Rachel McLarnon has won a silver microphone at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards.

Ms McLarnon, who now works for Power FM Bega, was judged the Best Music Director – Country at the national industry awards.

“It was a great night and I’m so excited,” Ms McLarnon said.

“I rang so many people saying I won! and everyone was cheering and yelling – Hughesy and Kate from Nova in Melbourne presented me with my award.”

Earning congratulations from her former Coffs Harbour radio colleagues, Rachel explained how she came to be nominated.

“To be considered in my category I had to answer questions to show that I know how to do the job. Not single answers though, I had to go into detail,” she said.

“Once in, judges go through all the people who have sent through information from around the country, then it’s narrowed down to the top three and you are then nominated.”

Rachel is now studying with the Australian Film and Television School to become a program director, an accreditation she hopes to achieve in November.
