Long-time 2AY broadcaster and newsreader Andy Walker has signed off after a career spanning close to fifty years.
On his final morning with Kylie and Kev, Andy explained how he got his start in radio at 2AY in the mid-1970’s.
“I auditioned with Laurie Henry who was the breakfast announcer and program manager,” Andy explained.
“I bought my tape up, we sat in his office and he listened to it. He looked at me and said ‘right, I think we can work on that, but I see you play football. The Melbourne Football Club have approached you, you played for Prahran in the VFA, Captain of school football for two years running’….so he said ‘you’ve got the job and you’re playing for North Albury this weekend.”
