Heather Maltman, Dan Anstey and Ben Hannant will present Sea FM’s new breakfast show in the Gold Coast.
Actor, TV presenter and ex-Bachelor contestant Heather Maltman said: “I’m looking forward to getting back home. Queenslander’s are just so happy about everything! The Oasis Centre is my hood, I used to work at the Fresh n Fast Juice Bar! I think I will bring a lot of love to the team and a perhaps a little bit of sass.”
“I’m really excited about giving the girls on the Gold Coast the opportunity to have a voice – it’s not just about my story and my views but theirs as well.”
Former NRL player Ben Hannant said: “I have travelled around the world for footy and the Gold Coast is still by far the best place to be. To be able to do this as a job and be back home on the Coast really ticks a lot of boxes.”
“The radio show environment for me feels a bit like a locker room situation, sitting around having a yarn. I feel comfortable in that environment and I’m a pretty open book so I think listeners will certainly learn a lot about me!”
Experienced radio guy Dan Anstey added: “The vibe on the GC is just so chilled out and relaxed but it’s not as in your face as Sydney and Melbourne. I can’t wait for that life.
“Essentially my job is to metaphorically run around with a lasso and reign the guys in, while also taking the mickey out of them a lot! While I have been in radio for much longer I think I’ll learn from them, giving me back an edge that perhaps I may have lost and the ability to be frivolous and loose and a bit rough around the edges.”
Southern Cross Austereo’s Gold Coast Regional Manager, Alison Geale said Sea FM is excited to begin a new chapter and bring a brand new sound to the Coast.
“We are very excited about our new Sea FM breakfast team. With such a broad range of backgrounds and experience, it is sure to be an exciting way for Gold Coaster’s to start their day.”
