Kern to host 102.3 Triple M Townsville afternoonBy Jonas Lopez in Media News on Friday, 14th May 2021 at 11:50am
The post is Kern’s first back in the booth since leaving Grant Broadcasters last year after 15 years, as mornings host for STAR 102.7 and different shows at STAR 1063.
The move is also full circle for Kern, as he started his radio career at 102.3FM in 2003, then labelled 4TO.
Kern stated that while he is going back to the booth, he will continue managing his food truck events firm PUFT.
“I am so excited to be returning to the station that gave me a chance to work in the industry 18 years ago. To be creating content alongside my childhood hero Pricey, and mentors Smithy and Dan Hill, I’m pinching myself. I’m proud to be joining a team that puts the community first,” said Kern.

“For the last four decades I’ve worked with and represented communities I’ve lived in, which has given me a very clear sense of what really matters to people, the things they care about, want to be heard on and want to talk about. There’s no better place to have those conversations with Kiwis than Newstalk ZB Aft
