2DayFM’s Mike Santos joins ‘Prodcast’
Image producer Mike Santos began his career in the United States, gaining extensive experience in Denver and Los Angeles.
After moving to Australia to work on The Kyle & Jackie O Show for KIIS FM, Santos moved to Melbourne and worked on Matt & Meshel and Jase & PJ. In July, Mike started with SCA on the 2Day FM Breakfast Show.
He’s also this week’s guest on Prodcast.
In this episode, Santos and Prodcast creator Dom Evans discuss his work at Alice 1059 in Denver and what it was like working with Kyle and Jackie, which Santos says was an eye-opener.
“I thought I knew what I was doing, and then I got into the Kyle and Jackie O seat. You do not know pressure and quality until you get on that show, I think.
“That’s just another one of those situations that just blows the learning curve out of the water”.
Evans believes Santos has a lot to offer the industry in Australia and his experience in the US gives him a unique perspective.
“It’s rare to have a producer who’s had extensive experience in the US and here in Australia. Mike understands both markets really well and provides great insight into the differences.
“Mike’s production is outstanding and I think Australian radio is very lucky to have him here in Australia.”
