Hosts, Presenters & Perfomers



Chris Taylor and Andrew Hansen, best known as members of the comedy group The Chaser, will host the 29th annual Australian Commercial Radio Awards (ACRAs) in Melbourne, for the second year running.
Chris and Andrew have worked in radio throughout their careers and were part of the full Chaser team that made their radio debut on Triple M with The Friday Chaser in 2003.  The team has produced over 15 radio and TV shows and in May this year returned to Triple M Sydney for a 12-week stint hosting the Radio Chaser show.
