Denis Walter to replace Ernie Sigley at 3AW
Not letting the grass grow under the microphone in 3AW’s studio, management has already settled on a replacement for Ernie Sigley who announced his retirement from the afternoon shift only last Wednesday.
Long-time easy listening announcer, vocalist and WIN TV News reader, Denis Walter is taking over from November - much to the regret of the people at WIN TV where he’s been reading the Victorian Regional news for the past 15 years.
Walter said it was an extremely tough decision to leave WIN.
“It has been an absolute honour to deliver the news that matters most to local communities, every weeknight for the past 15 years. If there was a way to combine both roles, I would jump at it.”
WIN Victoria General Manager, Michael Taylor, said Mr Walter’s contribution was significant over the past 15 years. “Denis leaves WIN News in a strong position and no doubt he will be a success at 3AW - we wish him well.”
