Just a week after announcing that he was leaving Hit106.9 in Newcastle, Simon Baggs has been revealed as the new drive co-host on 1029 Hot Tomato.
He will join Moyra Major and Mal Lees on the Gold Coast, replacing Galey who is moving to Breakfast.
Simon says he is thrilled to be returning home to the Gold Coast, where he’ll be closer to his parents and extended family.
Content Director at 1029 Hot Tomato, Whippy Dangar, says, “In 2020, we’ll continue to focus on local content and to have Baggs, a great radio talent and Gold Coaster born and bred join the team will strengthen our 100% Gold Coast commitment.
“As Gold Coast locals will know, Baggs has worked with Moyra and Galey before and we are excited to give him the opportunity to come home and keep doing what he loves back in the place that means so much to him.”
Simon plans to relocate to the Coast in early January but not before he ties the knot with his fiancé Iuliia in Newcastle.
