Speaking to Media Week about making the switch to being on-air talent rather than a producer, McGilvray said it was a little difficult at first. 

‘It was an interesting side step from producing to being in programming to then being on-air with the boys,’ she began. 

‘I am used to having to discipline them or telling them how to do a break whereas now I have to stop thinking like a producer and be more relaxed.’ 

She also previously worked for shows including The Kyle and Jackie O Show and 2GB’s Ray Hadley Morning Show.
