Although we pride ourselves in bringing a positive message to our listeners, sometimes that involves being authentic.
As a respected and seasoned lawyer, Simon can speak into a wide range of topical issues making headlines locally and internationally. Often mainstream media can put a ‘frightening and sensationalist glaze over every story’. But Simon is always able to offer some encouragement and advice.
“In a nutshell, Sonshine has been part of my whole life. Watching the Sonshine journey has always inspired me, it’s just gone from strength to strength. I get the freedom to talk about legal and political issues without being scripted. Having done a fair bit of media with other channels that’s not always the case. I like being able to tell it as it is, but also I hope to bring some encouragement into what otherwise can be scary or dark issues.”
As CEO of HHG Legal Group, Simon also believes we are a good brand to be identified with as a business. “We all know we’ve got to be careful about who we associate our brand with. I just have no hesitation about associating with 98five because we know our values are all the same.”
Countless 98five listeners are impacted by weekly guests like Simon, who give their advice on a range of issues.
With the support of our listeners over the last 34 years, we have grown to become more than just a local community radio station. We are able to reach people wherever they are, whether they’re in their car listening to the radio or scrolling through their Instagram feed before they go to bed, we can make this amazing message of life-changing hope seen and heard.
Will you partner with 98five to share hope for all to see and hear?
