Johnny from Fresh 92.7 has been a radio announcer for the last 7 years, however his career as an entertainer started a lot earlier.
He began as a nightclub MC in 2008 and continued to MC nightclubs/events/parties and functions as his career progressed.
It wasn't always a smooth ride, in fact radio wasn't always top of the list. Mainly because Johnny never really had a list, in fact he had no idea what he wanted to do for most of his teenage years and early twenties.
This lead to him trying his hand at whole bunchof random jobs including...
Real estate, Retail, Fruit and vege, Customer service, Sales, Personal training
Sports coaching, Dish washing for a mates cafe, and the list goes on... it actually does there's just not enough room in these things.
Once he found radio though that was it, there was no turning back. Ever since, he's worked his way through the industry announcing in Melbourne, the Riverland, on Nova 919 and most importantly on Fresh 92.7 for Workday with Johnny.
P.s his favourite thing is getting selfies with listeners, so don't be shy!
