Christian O’Connell confirms Australia move

Absolute Radio breakfast presenter Christian O’Connell has confirmed he’s moving to Australia for work.

He tweeted a link to a story about him replacing a morning show duo at Gold FM in Melbourne. He said “So, Australia I’m coming. You are my new home. Please be my friend”.

He recently announced on-air he’s leaving the UK for a new big adventure, after 12 years on Absolute/Virgin.

Easy listening Gold FM is part of the Pure Gold network owned by Australian Radio Network. ARN’s National Content Director based in Sydney is Duncan Campbell, who was Group PD at GCap Media when Christian worked at the group.

Christian, who is thought to be starting in Australia “in a few months” will replace Jo Stanley and Anthony Lehmann who left the station recently.
