Tony Hiller 1989-2020


We are all devastated by the sudden loss of our much loved friend and hugely valued colleague Tony Hiller, who died unexpectedly yesterday at the age of just 30.

Tony joined Kennet Radio as a volunteer six years ago and quickly became an important part of our management, technical and presenting teams.

With his happy personality and distinctive presentation style he endeared himself to listeners and colleagues alike as co-host of the Friday Drivetime Show. He was a well-known local DJ, too, which he brought to Kennet Radio with his Mind The Gap dance music show.

Behind the scenes, Tony was a vital member of our small technical team in the studio, and he was also instrumental in developing our brand and online presence. He developed our much-lauded website, and he also managed our social media.

We will miss him terribly, and our thoughts are particularly with his family and close friends at this difficult time.

RIP, Tony
