BMG Partners and 1494 2AY have developed a special story-telling series, called “The Journey”.
They say ‘Everyone has a book in them…but in most cases that’s where it should stay’, but we believe these interviews reveal an intriguing path that each person has been on. We discover who they are, their local ties, how they came to do what they do, and why they do it.
Featured once a month on Saturday mornings at 8am as part of 2AY’s The Weekender, these raw interviews by Kevin Poulton aim to tell the stories of interesting personalities, legends and ‘unsung heroes’ from our region.
