Queen’s Birthday Honours
A handful of radio names (past and present) have been recognised on this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
Veteran 3AW broadcaster Philip Brady received a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in recognition of his 60 years in radio and TV.
It’s the same honour awarded to South Australian radio and TV personality, Anne ‘Willsy’ Wills. Her gong is for her services to broadcast media.
The D-Generation’s Tom Gleisner has been appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) for his service to the media and television as a writer, producer, actor and presenter, a well as for his work with children with cancer and autism.
Regular radio contributor and music historian Glenn A. Baker was made a Member (AM) in the General Division of the Order of Australia.
Another on the honours list is broadcaster Steve Price. It’s not the talk-back host, but 4TO’s ‘Pricey’. The Townsville breakfast radio personality has been awarded an OAM for his service to the broadcast media and the community.
They were among hundreds of ‘famous’ and ordinary Aussies recognised on this year’s honours list.
