Emma Freedman has been appointed as National Drive News Presenter on SCA’s Hit Network, replacing Geoff Field in Sydney and other news readins in other capitals.
Freedman’s role on the Hit Network will be delivering national news inside the Hamish and Andy show and through other show appearances, including The Scoopla Show, which she co-hosts with Jules Lund.
Afternoon news shifts in other SCA capital cities have also been cut, with Freedman set to be heard in place of local bulletins.
Freedman launched her radio career in January this year and has been the co-host of The Scoopla Show, with Jules Lund, broadcasting nationally from 6pm weeknights.
Emma Freedman said: “The Hit Network has been an incredible home for me over the past nine months and to be extending my role on air is very exciting. Hamish and Andy have been great buddies of mine for a long time, and I’m so excited to be reading the news in their show.”
Head of the Hit Network Dave Cameron said: “Emma’s profile and popularity is at an all-time high. She’s one of the brightest new stars in the radio industry, and we are excited to increase her on air role across the Hit Network starting in a few weeks.”
A new streamlined news service on The Hit Network will broadcast news weekdays from 4pm-6pm across all metro markets in the coming weeks.
