Nic Kelly officially joins Hit101.3 in operations & announcer role
The Central Coast’s Hit101.3 says it has found the “absolute right person” for its announcer/ operations role in the form of Nic Kelly.
Kelly has a history with the station, having worked there when it was Sea FM in announcing and operations roles between 2017 and 2019.
Most recently though, Kelly was filling in for Ash London across the Hit Network’s national Nights program.
James Speed, group content director for the Hit and Triple M Networks across the Central Coast, Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour, said Kelly is already an icon to many and is one of the most talented announcers in the country.
“Nic is a Central Coast local, so his knowledge of the area is outstanding. His deep passion for music and absolute focus on the operations of radio will see Nic become a wonderful asset for us heading into a busy summer and beyond,” Speed said in a memo to staff.
“Nic approaches every day as an opportunity to genuinely connect to listeners, and truly lives and breathes the Hit brand.”
Kelly told Radio Today he feels deeply connected to the Central Coast community and can’t wait to get started.
“I was born in North Gosford Hospital, grew up in Terrigal, was baptised on the dancefloor of Sirens and it’s a proper full circle experience to come back home a decade into my career and talk to my people on Hit101.3 every day,” he said.
“After what the last year has thrown at everyone, spending more time in the place I call home has reminded me what really matters and I can’t wait to be creative with the brilliant people around me, put a smile on dials, love the place I live and gear up for the best summer of all time on the Cenny.”
In 2019, during his previous stunt with Sea FM, Kelly won a B&T 30 Under 30 Award, and last year he was named in the 30 Under 30 list for Radio Today’s sister site The Music Network.
Kelly starts his new role on Monday, which includes the 9am to 1pm on-air shift. He will continue to work at 2DayFM on weekends.
