Ugly Phil is heading to the Central Coast to host a new local Drive show on Star 104.5 from Monday 17 October.
Ugly Phil will bring years of experience rubbing shoulders with rock stars to Star 104.5’s Erina studios every weekday from 4pm to 7pm. Ugly Phil will chat to celebrities, provide exclusive “Ugly Phil” style content and news of the day, for a local show to make the Drive home fun for Central Coast listeners.
Ugly Phil hosted the Hot 30 Countdown on the Austereo network for many years, Drive at Nova 969 and Evenings on Triple M as well as the National Charts Show across major and regional markets throughout his career. The gig on Star 104.5FM is his return to Drive.
Ugly Phil said, “Star 104.5 represents everything I desire in radio - great rock, fantastic lifestyle, an opportunity to finally pay the rent and a loads of CD's in the record library l intend to steal....”
Star 104.5’s line up will be complete with Mandy and Wilko in the Morning for a fun and informative breakfast show from 5.30am to 9am. After experiencing success in Drive, Mandy and Wilko are moving to breakfast to wake up Central Coast listeners and get them started for the day ahead.
Scott Menz, Star 104.5 Program Director said, “We’re excited to have our newest rock star Ugly Phil join the Star 104.5 team and deliver a fun, exciting show for the Central Coast. With Mandy and Wilko in the Morning and Ugly Phil live and local for the drive home, our lineup is only getting stronger – and we’ll continue to deliver on what the Central Coast wants to hear heading into 2012.”
