Media personalities will be showing their support for Red Nose Day on June 29. The charity event celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.
The day raises awareness and funds for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Deaths from SIDS have decreased by 80% in the last three decades. However, nine children in Australia still pass away suddenly and unexpectedly every day.
Qantas has signed on as a major corporate sponsor.
Some of the media personalities who will be showing their support for Red Nose Day are Nine’s Rebecca Maddern, Ten’s Joe Hildebrand and Sarah Harris, as well as Australian Radio Network’s on-air talent such as KIIS FM’s Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O Henderson, Will McMahon and Woody Whitelaw, Jason Hawkins and Polly Harding, Monty Dimond, Bec Judd and Yumi Stynes, Zoe Marshall, John “JC” Caldwell, WSFM’s Brendan “Jonesy” Jones and Amanda Keller, GOLD 104.3’s Christian O’Connell, 97.3FM’s Bianca Dye, Terry Hansen and Bob Gallagher, 4KQ’s Mark Hine, Laurel Edwards and Gary Clare, Mix 102.3’s Jodie Oddy and Mark “Soda” Soderstrom, CRUISE 1323’s John Dean, 96FM’s Paul Hogan and Lisa Fernandez and The Edge 96.ONE’s Michael “Mike E” Etheridge and Emma Chow.
Australian Radio Network’s iHeartRadio will supply a dedicated radio station for families and schools to host their own Little Rockers Red Nose Disco fundraiser, using this station as the soundtrack. Television breakfast and morning shows on Seven, Nine and Ten will be running segments in support of the charity event.
