Beyond Radio : Linc Kelly

In 'Beyond Radio' we profile people who have translated successful careers in radio into spectacular ventures beyond radio.

It is easy to observe issues and opportunities in society where we could make a difference; it is harder to actually make the decision to move from observation to action and to do something about them.

Linc Kelly is a radio veteran – a production superstar formerly of Austereo, DMG, and GWR in the UK. His former boss, Radio Today’s Scott Muller, speaks glowingly of Linc:

“Linc worked for me in a number of places, discovered him when he sent a demo in from regional Vic when I was at Fox. He was one of the few who paid very close attention to feedback.

Got Linc to 6MMM then Simon took him to SAFM. I took him to the UK to be Group Production Director of the GWR Media Group. He's one of the best, would have him on my team any day”

Perhaps more importantly however, Linc is a terrific bloke and a dedicated family man. In his time ‘beyond radio’ Linc is doing some fantastic work raising awareness and money for people, particularly children, impacted by cancer.
