WSFM 101.7, Sydney Breakfast announcer, Amanda Keller, is to co-host this year’s Australian Commercial Radio Awards (ACRAs) with renowned US Emmy Award winning actor, Kelsey Grammer.

The well-known radio and television personality said she was thrilled to be co-hosting with such a celebrated actor.  “I was delighted to be asked to co-host the awards with Kelsey.  I am a fan of Cheers and Frasier and am looking forward to meeting and working with him,” said Ms Keller.

Chief executive officer of Commercial Radio Australia, Joan Warner said, “Amanda will be a wonderful co-host.  Her extensive knowledge of Australian radio and television will give Kelsey valuable insight to the industry on his first visit to Australia.”

The 23rd annual ACRAs, to be held at Jupiters on the Gold Coast on October 15 is a highlight of the radio industry’s yearly calendar, attracting radio personalities and stars from around Australia.

Additional presenters announced today include Nova’s new breakfast team, Fitzy and Wippa (Ryan Fitzgerald and Michael Wipfli), 2GB’s Ray Hadley, Hot Tomato’s Homesy and Flan (Paul Holmes and Sean Flanagan), Brisbane’s 97.3 fm Robin, Terry & Bob,(Robin Baily, Terry Hanson and Bob Gallagher), 3AW’s Neil Mitchell and special guest Olympian and Westpac Ambassador, Grant Hackett.

The ACRAs music entertainment lineup will be announced in the coming weeks.

Organised by Commercial Radio Australia, on behalf of the radio industry, the ACRAs include 33 categories, which cover all areas of radio broadcasting including news, talk, sport, music and entertainment. The Awards differ from television’s Logie Awards, in that they are peer judged with judging panels comprised of industry members. Winners are announced in each category across three areas: metropolitan, provincial and country commercial radio stations.

This will be Mr Grammer’s first visit to Australia and in addition to co-hosting the Awards he will be the keynote speaker at the National Radio Conference on 14 October, also at Jupiters on the Gold Coast.
