Radio announcers around the country are showing their support following Carrie Bickmore’s Gold Logie acceptance speech last night,  in which she asked everyone in Australia to wear a beanie today to help raise awareness of brain cancer.

The TV personality lost her husband Greg Lange to the disease in 2010 and last night accepted the Logie in his honour.

Among those wearing their beanie is Zinc 100.7 announcer Bel.

I went to University with Greg in the 90’s, so this one hits closer to home for me personally. He was definitely the class clown, and had an alter ego called Rico Suave. He was one of the most talented broadcasters I have ever met, and I still miss his awkwardness, and his humour”.

Here are some of the other announcers around the country sporting their beanies in support.
