ACE Radio’s Kate Meade, host of network breakfast show The Morning Rush, was listed in the Australian Financial Review 100 Women of Influence in 2018 and it was this that inspired ACE Radio to launch its first official podcast, Women of Influence, with Kate at the helm.
Season 1 of the podcast launched in July, 2019 and has already gained listeners from all over Australia, with a growing and engaged Facebook community building alongside it.
Season 2 kickstarts on Friday the 17th of January with one of radio’s biggest names, Jackie O.
The episode covers aspects of Jackie’s life that her audience may not be aware of, including Jackie O the dancer, the Jackie O who once considered leaving her inimitable radio partner Kyle Sandilands for Nova, and Jackie O the leader, whose experience has taught her what’s required in surrounding yourself with a strong team.
During their chat, Kate uncovers the secrets to Jackie’s success, as well as what’s next for her in life and love.
Season 2 also features Mia Freedman, Amanda Keller, Sarah Wall and Emma Hawkins however, it’s not just high-profile figures that feature.
The Women of Influence podcast is unique in that it is also a celebration of every day, Australian women, serving as a library dedicated to their stories.
ACE Radio CEO, Mark Taylor, is excited for another year of great storytelling through the podcast.
“We love having another string to our bow, as well as the variety of guests Kate is introducing to our audience. It’s an important time to champion women and ACE couldn’t be happier to get behind the podcast for another year.”
