Richard Clarke replaces Phil Brandel at Hot 100

Grant Broadcasters has moved quickly to find a new PD for Mix and Hot 100 Darwin, appointing Richard Clarke to replace sacked PD Phil Brandel.

Clarke will move up north from Grant Broadcasters’ Launceston station to Darwin to fill the vacancy.  Clarke knows the Territory well, having previously worked in Alice Springs and also for Hot 100 between about 2001-2003.


In 2003, he left Grant Broadcasters to work for Southern Cross Austereo, then rejoined the company in 2009 as Program Director at LA FM Launceston, where he was part of the launch team of Chilli 90.1 (see our story from that time).
