Peter Everitt, Sue Raward and Sean Flanagan
(L to R) Peter "Spida" Everitt, Celebrant Sue Raward and Sean "Flan" Flanagan on Friday 12th November when Sue "took the mic" and had a go at radio with the boys.

Spida and Flan are presenters on weekdays for Triple M Gold Coast's morning show Bridge, Spida & Flan.

Spida and Flan, along with their co-host Bridget "Bridge" Brousard, have been nominated for Best Radio Show Podcast in the 2020/21 Australian Commercial Radio Awards to be decided in Sydney on February 13, 2022.

Spida is also a finalist for Best Sports Presenter and Sue is sure they will be worthy winners if they pull it off.

Bridge is taking Fridays off until she leaves for Tasmania and Sue thought she would do a try out in the hot seat of live morning radio.

I acknowledge and pay my respects to the people of the Yugambeh language region of the Gold Coast and all their descendants both past and present.

I also acknowledge the many Australian first nations people from other regions as well as Torres Strait and South Sea Islander people who now live in the Gold Coast area and who are important as they are the foundation of our wonderfully diverse community.
