The Morning Rush with Verto and Kate

Wake up with Verto & Kate

Together, Verto and Kate share a unique chemistry which sees them chatting each morning about the issues of the day over breakfast. It's easy to forget that you're listening to the radio. It's like you have the two of them sitting with you at the table or in the back seat of the car.

So join them weekdays from 6 - 8.30 with regular segments, Entertainment and Showbiz with Peter Ford, Dwayne Russel with the latest in sport and everyone's favourite game Radio Scattegories!

Jon Vertigan was born into radio. His dad John (senior) spent 53 years in the radio industry, and Jon is close on his heels notching up 25 this year. Jon (or Verto as his mates and listeners know him) loves his family, food, footy and friends. It's just coincidental they all start with 'f'. Fridays are another thing he likes. Also fishing. But he doesn't catch anything, but goes on an annual 'fishing' trip with his mates. Jon teams up with his newest friend Kate, to deliver the Morning Rush to you, each weekday from 6 on the ACE Radio Network. Fabulous!
