1. Dave Hughes and Kate Langbroek’s insanely beautiful act of generosity for their coworker.
But according to their long-time producer, all that praise and fame that comes with being on top hasn’t gone to their heads. Rather than demanding gold plated microphones, the Hughesy and Kate co-hosts might just be the most generous bosses ever.
Radio host Kate Langbroek made headlines when she said sleeping with a married man is a shitty thing to do. But isn’t she right? Post continues after audio.
Speaking to News.com.au, their executive producer Sacha French – who joined Hughesy and Kate when they first started on Nova in 2001 – said her bosses paid off her very large university debt.
$80,000 worth, to be precise.
“It was so overwhelming and unexpected. I told Kate about it early last year because I thought it could be good content because loads of New Zealanders I’d met aren’t paying their loans and they’re not allowed to go home to New Zealand because of the student loans,” the New Zealand-born radio producer said.
According to French, Hughesy and Kate called her into the studio live on-air on her birthday last year. But rather than getting the sack (which is what one’s mind races to when their bosses call them into a meeting unexpectedly), they presented her with the bloody big cheque.
“They’d written me this beautiful card which made me cry … and then they told me they were going to pay off my student loan. They paid off the $80,000. I can’t say thank you enough because I never thought I’d be able to pay that off. It was amazing.”
Well then. Excuse us while we CC our bosses into this story.
