More about Catherine…
Catherine was bitten by the radio bug when she joined Your Rights at Night, a union show on Radio Adelaide in 2006 and went on to produce other programs for Radio Adelaide including The Daily Interview and The Wire.
Nursing, working for the union movement, campaigning for action on climate change and running art exhibitions are just some of the things Catherine has turned her hand to, but the common thread has always been connecting with people in the community, and she sees radio as a natural extension of that.
Catherine is a passionate supporter of art, local craft, film and live music and can regularly be seen at exhibitions, live music venues and festivals around her home town of Adelaide. She is the founder of SafeClimateSA.
