ARN welcomed its new international radio star Christian O’Connell and his family to Melbourne late last week ahead of the launch of The Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show today, throwing him a welcome party at Fargo & Co in Richmond.
Behind a backdrop of native Australian fauna, O’Connell and his sidekick Jack Post posed for photos for the first time at a Gold 104.3 function with key ARN executives and staff in attendance including ARN CEO Rob Atkinson, ARN national content director Duncan Campbell, ARN marketing chief Anthony Xydis, HR leader Marissa Daras and Gold 104.3 content director Sue Carter.
The celebrations included a presentation by Rob Atkinson, Duncan Campbell and Anthony Xydis and the most awarded radio host in the world, Christian O’Connell.
After the formalities, O’Connell and his family received a welcome pack of iconic Australian gifts including an AFL football and a Gold 104.3 branded surfboard.
O’Connell took his dog to the beach on the weekend, but we don’t believe he entered the water with his new board.
