Libby D came to Phuket from Bathurst, Australia, where she hosted the B-Rock FM Morning Show with co-host Benny Hope. Last year, the team submitted a nomination for Best Sales Promotion in Country, which they won at the event on the Gold Coast Australia.

This year’s finalist is for the Best Station Promotion, which Libby executed along with Benny Hope and Leilani Vakaahi from the Bathurst team. The station held a competition to find Bathurst’s Bicentennial Bride. A group of Bathurst businesses got together and the station awarded one lucky bride to be a $17,000 bridal package.
