Benny Hope

Program Director
2BS 1503 Gold and BRock FM

Aged 36.

Grew up loving radio and got my own show at 2MCE-FM, a community radio station in Bathurst. Always used to dream of working in Sydney. I sat in the foyer of 1503 2BS Gold / B-Rock FM everyday for 6 months in 1997 at age 18 until they gave me a run on the air. After 7 years at B-Rock moved to 105.9 Star FM Orange Breakfast.

In 1997 I also won the LOUD Festival 'Take Over Hot Hits' competition and hosted a show with Ugly Phil and Jackie O

I also toured the world as part of the Global Rock Eisteddfod Challenge Tour in January 2000.

In 2001 I completed subjects at Charles Sturt University in Commercial Radio Management. In 2003 I completed the AFTRS Programming course.

What is my dream job? Working at 2MMM. Always has been and always will be. I love that station!!! New challenges are always good! Bring them on! Love where I am currently.

Here are some gongs I've mananged to pick up along the way.
