Earlier this year Kirste and Dan‘s long-time producer Leon left Sonshine to spread his wings in commercial media, so the hunt was on for someone to fill his shoes in the all-important role of keeping our brekky team under control (a big job right?!).

Enter Kourtney Smith, she’s amazingly organised, fun and talented, and has been a very welcome addition to the Sonshine family. You may have heard her on-air, and seen her on our socials, so we thought it was about time we let you get to know a little bit more about her. So, here’s a Q&A to give you an insight!

What’s the most important thing we need to know about you?

I’m lactose intolerant.

Who’s in your family?

I have a large extended family, two sisters and a seven-year-old daughter named Savannah.

What did you do before joining Sonshine?

Before Sonshine, I was working in retail while finishing my degree in broadcasting and creative writing (which I’m still finishing).

Coffee or tea? Cats or dogs?

Can energy drinks be an option? Haha. Dogs for sure, I have a little chihuahua/jack russell.

Favourite thing to do in your spare time?

I absolutely love spending time with my daughter, particularly watching movies, as well as going to the gym.

What’s most exciting for you about being part of the Sonshine team?

I love the fact that now my work finally correlates with my passions and interests.

We love having Kourtney as part of our Sonshine family and look forward to seeing all that she continues to bring to Kirste & Dan’s show!
