Recognising a critical gap, we saw an untapped opportunity to infuse talk radio and, more extensively, the Australian media landscape, with an invigorating blend of optimism and opportunity. With Disrupt Radio, we’re set to redefine the media narrative, fostering a space that celebrates fresh perspectives, innovative thinking, and the bold spirit of entrepreneurship.”

“We could not be more excited to have Sir Bob Geldof – a global disruptor, maverick thought leader and social entrepreneur – spearhead our launch for a week of live Breakfast radio. His passion, influence and relentless desire to push boundaries perfectly represents our ethos. Sir Bob and his team have been staunch allies of Disrupt Radio from the very start. Their commitment has been nothing short of extraordinary and we eagerly anticipate the moment audiences get to tune in to a Breakfast show that promises to stir conversations across Australia, captivate listeners and provoke thought.”
