"I am truly shocked by this Award and consider it such an honor. Thank you CMA for this acknowledgement. Presenting ‘SATURDAY NIGHT COUNTRY’ nationally every week is a passion and brings me great enjoyment. The support of ABC local radio makes Country music accessible and current from anywhere in AUSTRALIA. It is wonderful to be part of their programming. I must importantly thank JOHN NUTTING who handed his show to me after 17 years. His faith in me is the reason I am in radio," said FELICITY.
