Interesting to see Hot Tomato the #1 commercial choice for evenings (ABC local radio is outright #1 with David Curnow's evenings across both the ABC local radio stations which figures are disclosed for).

The evening announcer on Hot Tomato is Craig Collett, better known to the Gold Coast as the Big Kahuna who hosted the evening shift on Sea FM.

The evening shift on Hot Tomato is voicetracked. It's one of those quirks of radio that a pre-recorded Big K can beat his successors on Sea FM who now come from Sydney (one hour delay) with a metro budget.

Since the Big K took over the evening shift on Hot Tomato, he has done a great job with content he puts into the show. He makes the effort needed and then some.
