Laurel Edwards celebrates 25 years of breakfast radio

Edwards has held the same role in the leading breakfast slot for 25 years

Laurel Edwards, host of the Laurel, Gary & Mark show on Brisbane’s #1 commercial AM radio station 4KQ, this week celebrated her 25th anniversary on-air. Commencing her career at 4KQ on May 18, 1992, Edwards has held the same role in the leading breakfast slot this entire time.

To mark the occasion, a special segment was broadcast on this Thursday’s show including highlights of Laurel’s time with 4KQ, along with interviews with her husband, country musician Troy Cassar-Daly, their children Clay and Jem, and Mark Spurway, the original program director who employed Edwards back in 1992. Keith Urban also shared a special video message for Edwards.

ARN’s national content director Duncan Campbell congratulated Edwards on the celebration, saying: “We are honoured to have spent the past 25 years with Laurel – she’s an integral part of the 4KQ team. During this time she has earned respect from everyone who works alongside her, and also from Brisbane listeners who love her as one of their own and look forward to the unwavering wit, wisdom and laughter she brings each morning.”
