Rachel Storer, winner of the inaugural Commercial Radio Australia (CRA) Brian White Scholarship, has secured a full-time job with Southern Cross Austereo’s Hit Network.
After completing the eight-week paid scholarship work attachment in Sydney, consisting of two weeks each at Macquarie Media, Southern Cross Austereo, Australian Radio Network and Nova Entertainment, Storer was offered a job with SCA at Hit 106.9 Newcastle.
Natasha Jobson, Southern Cross Austereo (SCA), metro news operations manager, said Storer impressed the team with her broad skillset during her internship in the Sydney SCA newsroom.
“Rachel quickly grasped the concept of tailoring news to our brands, and catering for our audience’s appetite for both on-air and online news. We’re so pleased to welcome her to the Newcastle newsroom under the guidance of Dave Dollin, and look forward to helping her achieve her next career goals.”
