Will Chrissie go to community radio?

With Chrissie Swan leaving ARN this friday, and without a radio home for 2015, an opportunity has presented. 

Regional Victorian community radio station Plenty Valley FM yesterday launched a campaign to get Chrissie to join the Drive show. They're promoting the idea on the air, and through the hashtag #chrissieonpvfm

However the campaign is not off to a strong start with no tweets to the hashtag at the time of writing, so it appears that Chrissie Swan is perhaps unlikely to appear on Plenty Valley FM anytime soon.

Chris kind of freaks out at the end.
