As a result, she loves a deep dive and getting really into the weeds with research – she's also excited to learn some new country lingo!

Liam Achurch

I'm an avid fan of radio and a barista, serving up a passion for live broadcasting. Like a cup of coffee, I have enjoyed fuelling audiences with produced features and stories for the past two years on community radio stations including 2SER. A Highlight of my experience is working on 2SER's 'The Daily', a morning to midday program broadcasting community-focused local and national events. Ever since then, I have gown to appreciate radio and enjoyed working in this space. The Sydney Royal Easter Show has ignited my appreciation for country and agriculture, and I'm looking forward to share all I've learnt from behind the microphone, especially all things farming!

I’m looking to expand my knowledge of the radio and podcasting industries and grow my experience in podcast sound design/production. I’m an avid photographer and lover of all things technology outside of work. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had some form of technology in my grasp, whether it be a camera or a computer. I also have a deep love for animals of all sizes, and have immensely enjoyed going to the Sydney Royal Easter Show in the past years.

I'm also an actor and voice over artist specialising in character voices, so if you ever need someone to do a silly voice, please reach out. I love to chat to people and learn about their lives, and at this year's Sydney Royal Easter Show, I'll be looking for a novelty food item that tops the deep-fried lasagne I tried in 2019.

Keegan Brown

Show Radio 2022

While across the airwaves I could be the difference between a torrential downpour on a stormy afternoon and the break in the clouds that reveals a rainbow. With almost 2 years experience on Community Radio at 2SSR I'm no stranger to a segment going sideways and I'm an enthusiast of living in the moment behind the microphone. A drop of entertainment and a dash of information is my preferred prescription to dial in a smile, but during Show Radio I'm sure I'll be accidentally attacked by a goat.

Campbell Moore

Show Radio 2022

My first foray into the world of radio began when I first started at my university’s student radio, creating a show entirely based around biscuits. I quickly found a passion for radio and loved the excitement of live broadcasts. Based in Newcastle, I have worked on producing and presenting my own radio programs for last 3 years, with a focus on another of my passions, the local Newcastle music scene. I work as a freelance podcast editor, sound producer and audio engineer. In my spare time I enjoy playing my piano, listening to records, and going to live gigs. This will be the first time I’ve ever attended the Sydney Royal Easter Show, so I’m particularly excited to take in all that this massive event has to offer (especially the food).

Jonathan Pearson

Show Radio 2022

My radio journey started at just 13 through Community radio in Adelaide, spending the next 10 years immersing myself in all thing’s audio. Moving into the finance world and to Sydney the dream was parked for a while. Despite juggling a full-time role and kids after a 20-year hiatus I am back to doing what I love, making audio. Passionate content creator, so happy to be joining the team and enjoying lots of cheese toasties throughout the broadcast.

Angela Tjeuw

I have followed my heart into radio having spent the last twenty years as a doctor. I'm passionate about all things audio and sharing stories that build connection, compassion and communities. Outside of work, I love to sing (though there is often much protest about this at home) and I'm mum to two cheeky girls and a mud-loving Cavoodle called Charlie. You would most likely find me indulging in a hot scrumptious scone (or two) at the CWA tea room. I look forward to chatting with you!
