Nine News presenter Jo Hall will join smoothfm 91.5 as guest news presenter from Monday 15 July and team up with Mike Perso, for breakfast while news journalist Jennifer Hansen is on leave.
smoothfm Program Director, Georgie Page, says, “Mike and Jen have such a loyal following in breakfast in Melbourne. Jo is one of the market’s most respected names in news and brings with her a wealth of experience not only as a journalist, but as a Melburnian and a mother, so we know our listeners are in good hands while Jen is on leave.”
Jo Hall is one of Melbourne’s most distinguished and experienced television presenters and currently presents four bulletins of Nine News at 6pm to viewers in regional Victoria, as well as filing regular stories for the Melbourne bulletin.
This year she celebrates 40 years with Nine News.
Jo Hall says, “I love radio and I love news, it has been in my blood for 40 years. I think of smooth in a similar way to the way I feel about Channel Nine; there is something prestigious and classy about working there, so I’m thrilled for the opportunity to join the smoothfm breakfast team.”
NOVA Entertainment’s National Newsroom Manager, Michelle Stephenson, says, “Jo Hall is a name synonymous with Melbourne news, she’s one of the city’s most distinguished TV presenters, and as such she is the perfect person to jump in the seat on smoothfm 91.5 alongside Mike Perso.”
Jo will be heard on the smoothfm More Music Breakfast Show from Monday 15 July to Friday 19 July.
Jennifer Hansen will return to the studio with Mike Perso on Monday 22 July.
