Radio host Cody ‘The Code’ Schaeffer has resigned from 97.3 in Brisbane to work on his own non-for-profit organisation Borderline Youth Camp.
Best known for his time at B105 in their 2018 re-boot of the Black Thunders, Cody went on to host B105 Weekend Breakfast on the ‘Jase, Em & The Code’ show.
After leaving B105 in September 2019, he joined the team at ARN, and says, “Since I was 6 Years old I had a dream to work in the industry and I was so lucky to get the chance to live out that dream, but I also realise that sometimes dreams aren’t forever.”
After departing B105 in 2019, Cody used his own Mental Health struggles to create Borderline Youth Camp which helps young teenagers aged 15-18 with their mental health & future through week-long camps and life changing programs, and was awarded Brisbane’s Young Citizen of the Year for 2020 at the Australia Day Awards,
Moving forward Cody has decided to take a step back from radio to focus on building Borderline Youth Camp on a national level.
He says, “I am so grateful for all the wonderful relationships I have from my time at SCA & ARN, I truly feel a sense of happiness and love radiate when I think of the incredible people I met along the way.”
Borderline Youth Camp launches the first week-long camp in July and features special guests Abbie Chatfield, Christian Hull, Karen Jacobsen (Voice of Siri), Michael Gracey (Director of The Greatest Showman) and other inspiring guests to motivate and change the lives of the teenagers attending.
