Programmer/Presenter

Holly Reid completed the trainee presenter course in March 2015 and has since been filling in on different shows across the grid. Although this process is not new to her – she began her affiliation with radio on 3RPP (Radio Port Philip) presenting a children’s show – learning to present on 3MBS has added a new dimension in radio broadcasting.

Originally from the USA, Holly lived in Ballarat for many years, where she worked as a teacher and fundraiser. She completed an MBA and has since worked in senior management of a number of charities and arts organisations. From 1998 – 2001 Holly was the fundraising manager for the VCA, before serving as CEO for both Menzies Caring for Kids and for Variety Victoria.

Music has been a part of Holly’s life since she was a teenager, especially choral work and love of the guitar. Currently she sings with a local ladies choir, which in 2016 will enjoy a brief tour of the UK in July.

In addition to her volunteer work at 3MBS and as a bequestor herself, Holly has been coordinating the bequest program to encourage others to add a gift to 3MBS in their wills.
