Tod Johnston joins Perth’s 6PR to host The Nightshift
Radio presenter Tod Johnston has rejoined Nine Radio’s 6PR in Perth, this time around as host of evening program, The Nightshift.
Johnston previously worked for the station back in 2005 to 2009 as host of The Big Weekend, and has also clocked up presenting gigs on ABC Radio, and on television across both Channel 9 and Channel 10.
The station’s content manager, Emily White, thanked former host Chris Ilsley for his hard work, and said she looks forward to working with him in coming weeks on future opportunities at the station.
In Ilsley’s place, White said she was thrilled to welcome Johnston.
“Perth knows Tod well and we are confident he will bring his unique energy to our evening programming as part of 6PR’s newly reinvigorated on-air line-up,” she said.
“This is the final piece in the puzzle for us in terms of our on-air lineup as we prepare fore a big new year on 6PR. We are excited for what 2021 will bring.”
Johnston added: “Perth is my home and to be able to join the 6PR team gives me the opportunity to connect even more with the local community. I will be sharing the latest news, talk and music with the 6PR listeners and look forward to them welcoming me into their world.”
6PR recently said goodbye to its Breakfast co-host, Perth’s mayor Basil Zempilas, who has since joined SCA’s new Triple M lineup. Zempilas’ former co-host, Steve Mills moved into the Afternoons slot, while its former occupant, Simon Beaumont will host a new weekend Morning program. Last year’s Mornings host, Gareth Parker will taker over Breakfast, and 60 Minutes journalist Liam Bartlett will fill the Mornings void.
