Our media release is below. Note that this weekend gig no way impacts on Hootville’s training, speaking, consulting and emceeing.
Saturday February 7, 1377 MyMP will see the debut of Hootville – a savvy magazine style program from 10am to noon presented by Brett de Hoedt.
de Hoedt last hosted 9pm to midnight weeknights on Talk 1116 a decade ago and was the last presenter on-air before the station relaunched as sports station SEN 1116. Since then he’s spent his time building his media and marketing agency Hootville Communications but always aimed to return to radio.
“Nothing compares to radio, especially in the Saturday morning timeslot,” says the former Seven Network publicist, Truth cadet and New Idea reporter. “You get paid to talk to interesting people. Plus I no longer have to feel guilty about not going to the gym on Saturday morning. Win, win!”
The Hootville line-up includes:
- sport with sports tragic Julianne Page;
- God and religion with comic, cleric and social commentator Reverend Howard Langmead;
- movies and TV with critic Sash Fong;
- food with The Age food writer and editor Roslyn Grundy;
- thinking with Jason Clarke and Lisa Smith of Minds At Work;
- technology with Tech Talk Radio’s Andrew McColm;
- law and order with former Victoria Police detective office Ron Kileen.Media contact: Brett de Hoedt 0414 713 802 / firstname.lastname@example.org / www.hootville.com
- There’ll be crosses to events across the state, vox pops and talkback. Segments of the show will be available in bite-sized podcasts. The show has a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/radiohootville
