Jack joined the 2NUR volunteer team in late 2020 when he was 16. Since then, he has taken over the reins of Wellbeing, a national radio show that investigates mental and physical health topics. He has put to air series on mental health subjects such as PTSD, Alcoholism, Anorexia and Bipolar Disorder. Wellbeing is broadcast on 34 radio stations across Australia and is now 2NUR’s number one rating podcast, and so the show is instrumental in informing communities all across Australia on important mental health topics.

For his work with Wellbeing, he was nominated for a CBAA Award in 2022 in the category of “Outstanding Youth Contribution”.

More recently, Jack’s show Vinyl Vibes hit the airwaves in 2023 on 2NURFM, was a finalist for “Best Online Content” in the CBAA Awards. Vinyl Vibes is aired fortnightly 6pm alternate Sundays and talks with musicians from the 1960s and 1970s. Jack has had the opportunity to interview music artists such as Keith Potger (The Seekers), Graham Russell (Air Supply), and Colin Petersen (Original drummer of the Bee Gees).
