Official: Luke Grant signs with Macquarie Radio Network

Following several rumours that ex-2HD breakfast announcer Luke Grant was about to sign with another network and was leaving Newcastle, I contacted him for official word.

Luke confirmed that he has signed a contract with Macquarie Radio Network and starts work on Monday1 March 2010 in Melbourne. He will be working directly with Steve Price on assembling a commercial talk radio station, as reported elsewhere, in direct competition with long time market leader 3AW.

Luke cannot elaborate on any other details at this stage.

Well done Lukey Boy. You and Pricey will do good things in Melbourne.
Newcastle’s loss but a good career move for you.
Will you be going to the AFL or to the Storm matches?
Better get FOX if you want to keep up to date with Roosters or Knights though

Congrads Luke on your new adventure. Sorry to learn about a once grand station in Newcastle, thus 2HD, but I think that the professionalism in Melbourne will be much better!

Good luck.
