Brendon ‘Whippy’ Dangar will be returning to the sunny Gold Coast as Content Director of 1029 Hot Tomato.

Whippy started in radio in his home town in Newcastle, then went onto Brisbane with the third stop being on the Gold Coast back in the early 2000’s, has held key roles on and off the air in a number of metropolitan markets and worked at all three cap city networks including roles of Assistant Content Director at NOVA 106.9 in Brisbane and Content Director at KIIS 101.1 in Melbourne.

Hot Tomato General Manager Graham Miles says, “We are very pleased to welcome Whippy to the role. He has already worked with some of our people and we know his skills and experience are a good fit and will be a great benefit to the station.”

Whippy says “I’ve been looking for the perfect opportunity to come back and Hot Tomato’s always a station I’ve have my eye on, so I can’t wait.”

Grant Broadcasters Chief Operating Offer Rick Lenarcic says, “There was no shortage of strong candidates for the role but for some strange reason the team picked Whippy? Looking forward to welcoming Whippy to not only the Hot Tomato team but also the Grant Broadcasters family.”

Whippy would have you believe he’s reliable, honest, always late for meetings and the stations biggest fan, a claim that the team at Hot Tomato will test when he takes up the role mid-April.
