2DayFM announces Mathew ‘Eggo’ Eggleston as new content director


• Eggleston has worked with SCA for 13 years

Head of the Hit Network, Gemma Fordham, today announced the appointment of Mathew ‘Eggo’ Eggleston as content director for 2DayFM Sydney. 

Eggleston has worked with SCA for 13 years, most recently as Hit Network’s metro operations manager and looking after regional content for Hit. He has held various other roles at SCA across programming, including as content director for B105 where he led the team to number one. 

He began his radio career with NXFM Newcastle as an announcer and music director, before moving to SAFM and then Fox FM in similar roles. He is no stranger to 2DayFM, where he was music director. 

“Eggo has 2DayFM in his blood, his true passion for the station and brand is obvious and he will inject his enthusiasm into the 2Day product and shows. It’s an exciting time for 2Day with our new The Morning Crew with Hughesy, Ed and Erin breakfast show and we are looking forward to having Eggo on the team,” Fordham said. 

Commenting on his new role, Eggleston said: “When it comes to radio, 2DayFM was always the dream as a young kid growing up in Newcastle. I’ve had the pleasure of working here on multiple occasions already over my time in radio, but nothing compares to getting the keys to the station as the content director. I’m looking forward to leading this talented team and I’m excited to get started.” 

Eggleston’s appointment is effective immediately. 

Elsewhere on the Hit Network today, Justin Hill has been announced as the host of Stan Original RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under: The Podcast to coincide with the debut of the eight-part Stan Original Series RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under.

The Hit Network production, created exclusively with Stan, will be available to stream on LiSTNR every Sunday after each new episode.
