Gail also worked in Emerald (4HI) and Cairns (4CA/HOT FM) before moving to Brisbane to take up a position with 4BC.

She continued in that role for more than 2 years before deciding to move to Melbourne to join 4BC’s sister station 3AW in 2008. Gail has worked in rural, regional and metropolitan radio and can offer an insight into the challenges that each sector offers.
