Breakfast radio favourite announces move to Adoni Media

    High-profile Brisbane newsreader and former Australian Radio News (ARN) National News Director, Monique Dews, is the latest senior journalist to join the experienced team at public relations and media training agency, Adoni Media.

    Founded in 2012 by award-winning television journalist and former foreign correspondent, Leisa Goddard, Adoni Media boasts one of the strongest stables of former news bosses, TV producers, reporters, and media specialists in Australia.

    Ms Dews has been appointed to a newly created role of Director of Accounts and Strategy at the award-winning public relations agency.


    Experience is what clients trust

    “Experience is what counts and as a former ARN National News Director and one of the most recognised names and voices in Australian radio, Monique Dews brings decades of media knowledge and expertise to further support Adoni Media’s clients across Australia,” Ms Goddard said.

    “We are thrilled to be welcoming such a respected and trusted media executive to the team because it is our credibility and experience that clients trust when it comes to PR, Media Training and Crisis Management.”

    Opportunities leading up to the 2032 Brisbane Olympics

    Ms Dews will work across client accounts and identify opportunities for Adoni Media in the lead up to the Brisbane Olympics in 2032.

    “Brisbane is going through such an incredible time of change and development as we count down to the Olympics, so it feels right to make a move now to Adoni Media,” Ms Dews said.

    She is known in Brisbane for her role as breakfast newsreader alongside Robin Bailey, Terry Hansen and Kip Wightman on KIIS 97.3.

    During her 11 years at ARN, Ms Dews helped establish a national news desk and national news feed and has several ACRA awards and nominations.

    Adoni Media’s experienced team

    Ms Dews joins a high-calibre team that includes former Ten News Brisbane News Manager and former Canberra Press Gallery journalist, Jane Henschke and former A Current Affair producer and 2GB reporter, Clare Christensen.

    The Adoni team is led by Ms Goddard who has more than three decades of experience as a senior journalist and has spent more than ten years providing trusted PR advice and issues management to industry leaders around Australia.

    “We have a depth of experience rarely seen in Australian PR agencies – from very senior journalists who have run newsrooms, war correspondents, foreign correspondents, and political correspondents to former reporters and producers of current affairs program A Current Affair, government media advisors, senior radio reporters and corporate affairs specialists who have worked with ASX-listed corporates,” Ms Goddard said.

    “Experience is at the core of what we do at Adoni and the addition of Ms Dews will enhance our team of respected and highly regarded media experts.”

    Adoni Media is a national PR, Media Training and Crisis Communications firm that supports ASX-listed and private companies, global corporations, leading Australian charities, and some of the fastest-growing start-ups in the country.
