Former 2DayFM Breakfast executive producer and senior producer of The Kyle & Jackie O Show, Kim Czosnek, is set to lead the content team at the Hit Network’s Gold Coast operation.

With so much growth in the area, it’s an exciting time to be heading North – not only to live in a glorious location, but to work hard with the team in creating the best content that the loyal listeners love. I’m also ready to push the boundaries and engage new listeners.”
