Barry is back

Barry Drinkwater is back and has been appointed as the Afternoon Announcer assisting in music and programming on River 949.

His return to full-time radio follows decades in the industry, including on-air roles with Triple MB105 and 4KQ Brisbane and as the inaugural Content Director of ARN’s 97.3 (now KIIS 973) and 4KQ.

Barry is looking forward to his return, saying: “After a relaxing 12 months working at home, the chance to do some live and local radio at River sounds just perfect to me.

“I can’t wait to have some fun with the River 949 team from next week!”

River Content Director Drew Chapman is delighted to welcome Barry, saying, “It’s a massive coup to have someone of his experience on the team who will no doubt help us to make the River brand even stronger”.

Station Manager David Wiltshire and former colleague of Barry’s is also thrilled to be working with Barry again, saying, “I can’t wait to welcome him back into the industry that he belongs in!”

Barry joins the River team from Monday, October 17.
