Veteran radio broadcaster Derryn Hinch will be the special guest as Melbourne’s LGBTI radio station JOY 94.9FM relaunches its much-talked-about news and current affairs show.
Salt and Pepper show hosts Pete Dillon and Serena Ryan will welcome Hinch – nicknamed the ‘Human Headline’ for his at times controversial on-air and off-air antics covering the big stories – for the premiere of their new prime time slot at 7pm on Tuesday October 2nd.
“Derryn Hinch is a noted journalist who in recent years has softened his approach to marriage equality and is now a supporter of the cause. We are thrilled to have him join us in our first prime time program,” say Dillon and Ryan, pictured below.
The show, which has traditionally aired at 11pm each Tuesday night, drew headlines around the world back in June after an interview with Salvation Army spokesperson Major Andrew Craibe over the organisation’s “put gays to death” doctrine. Here’s the story.
Salt and Pepper has also broadcast interviews with John Becker from Truth Wins Out about gay conversion therapy by the husband of former Republican Presidential hopeful, Michelle Bachman. Other highlights have been a recent interview with New Zealand Labor MP Louise Wall – the Minister responsible for the New Zealand Equal Marriage legislation, spokesperson for the Westboro Baptist Church Shirley Phelps Roper, plus Tasmanian Premier Lara Giddings and former Queensland Premier Anna Bligh.
Salt and Pepper airs Tuesdays at 7pm on JOY 94.9.
