PODCAST: Episode 3 - Danielle McGrane, AAP's Entertainment Reporter and Presenter for the Right Note TV
Danielle McGrane is originally from Dublin, Ireland. Growing up around music, and landing a job with the iconic Hotpress magazine set the foundation for a career in music journalism. Seven years ago, Danielle arrived in Sydney landing a job with the Australian Associated Press (AAP). Eventually she became AAP's Entertainment Reporter covering everything from the ballet to live music to red carpets to orchestras to all things television and movies. Danielle's passion for Australian music has grown, and each week you can also find her presenting on The Right Note which is a web-based television show. Danielle sits alongside Bernard Zuel who is the music editor for Fairfax, and Rod Yates who is the Editor of Rolling Stone magazine in Australia. The Right Note is hosted by Lindsay "The Doctor" McDougall and in April 2017, wrapped up season one - 19 weekly episodes featuring album reviews and studio performances.
