Fiveaa Adelaide appoints Jeremy Cordeaux as evening host

CordeauxFiveaa Adelaide has appointed award winning journalist Jeremy Cordeaux as its new evening host, starting on air from Tuesday, January 28.

Cordeaux covered the summer leave period for Leon Byner’s morning show during which he spoke to a number of high-profile Australians including Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

Fiveaa program director Dave Shearer said in a statement: “Jeremy did a fantastic job filling in for Leon over the summer period, and showcased that he’s committed to the people of Adelaide and making the state a better place. He’s an award winning journalist and talk back host, so having him as a part of our on air line up is a great opportunity for Fiveaa.”

During his summer stint Cordeaux also led campaigns committed to making Adelaide a better place, personally offering $10,00 to catch the people behind the deaths of miniature show horses on SA’s Fleurieu Peninsula.

“Five years ago I decided to take my own long service leave, but I never wanted to retire. I’m glad I had time to recharge the batteries, smell the roses, wash the cars, but I’m very excited to be getting back on the air from Tuesday. I feel like all the years in radio have prepared me for now. I feel very lucky,” Cordeaux said in a statement.

Cordeaux has won gold three times for “Best Talk Show Host in the World” at the New York Festival Radio Awards and has been recognised with an Order of Australia Award.

Jeremy commences on air next week from 8pm to midnight, weeknights.

Mark Aiston will also join the Fiveaa on air line up from Tuesday, as he joins David Penberthy and Jane Reilly on FIVEaa’s breakfast show.
