NRN Cadet Brady Evans joins Nine Radio

Amy Leiper, 24th February 2022
CBAA is pleased to announce Brady Evans, a National Radio News (NRN) cadet, has graduated on to a new job with Nine Radio.

Brady Evans, former NRN Cadet, said, “Last Friday marked my final shift with National Radio News. I will always remember my time and cadetship here very fondly and it was very sad to say goodbye to some of the people who have been instrumental in my development so far.”

“However, all good things must come to an end and I’m proud to announce that soon I will be starting in the Nine Radio Sydney newsroom with 2GB. I’m very excited to embark on this next chapter of my journey and keen for this new challenge.”

Abe Killian, CBAA’s Content Services Manager said, “National Radio News is a fantastic service for the communities across the country, through the partnership with Charles Sturt University and the CBAA with support from the CBF. Alongside the professional journalists employed at National Radio News, it is also a great place for journalism students through the cadet program to gain the experience they need to move on to accessing paid roles following their graduation. Brady’s achievement proves the program is successful and adds value to journalism in Australia.”

Frank Bonaccorso, News Director at National Radio News said, “One of the joys of overseeing National Radio News Cadets is the spark that manifests whenever they find a new dynamic within the discipline of broadcast news that wasn’t immediately apparent in their earlier training. Brady is a sponge, eagerly absorbing everything about the medium and unflappable in the NRN Production chair. No matter the gravity of the crisis unfurling before him, Brady would turn any development into clear, concise copy and relay it to his audience with diligence and a maturity far beyond his years”

National Radio News provides relevant and up-to-the-minute national, international and state-based news and sport on the hour. It is built on the community broadcasting sector's principles of democracy, independence and access, NRN has no commercial ties or political agenda, and often covers stories overlooked by commercial services. Bulletins are produced in Bathurst, NSW, by three full-time journalists, supported by cadets from Charles Sturt University.

Bulletins are four minutes long and mix national and international news, sport and finance. There is a particular focus on the information needs of people in regional areas.
