Emma Freedman is Back and Better Than Ever!

At the end of December last year, it was revealed that bubbly presenter Emma Freedman’s contract would not be renewed with Channel 9 because of cost-cutting changes.

Her fans knew that it wouldn’t be long until we saw her again – and they were right!

It turns out we wont be seeing her as much but we will be hearing her. She has landed a new gig in radio, as co-host of the new national nightly program ‘The Scoopla Show with Jules Lund and Emma Freedman’.

It will air on Southern Cross Austereo’s Today Network and will be on weeknights at 6pm.

Emma told, “I’m really excited and really happy. I feel like I’ve found a spot within the Southern Cross Austereo family and now have a job that’s mine, that belongs to me, that I can stick my teeth into and take ownership of a job where I’m not filling in for anyone”.

She said that once she had her first Christmas and New Years off in five years, she decided that everything happens for a reason.

“You have to be positive and strong and aim to be happy. I think my perspective has matured, it was difficult to process at the time, but I’m 26, not 60. What happened to me has happened to a thousand other people, you have to go into this industry with thick skin and you would be deluded if you thought it couldn’t happen to you too.”

She also spoke of the support she received after she was booted – namely that of her new co-host Jules Lund. She said that Jules was one of the first people to call her after it happened, even before the new radio show had been thought of.

Jules is excited to be working with Emma too. He said of her, “Em’s one of the sharpest, most dynamic broadcasters in the country. We’ve been great mates for years. I couldn’t be happier.”

The Scoopla Show with Jules Lund and Emma Freedman will be covering the day’s top stories for an hour each night. It will kick off on Monday, February 2nd on the Today Network from 6pm.
