Jon Williams was a voice known for his sign off at the Zone 91.3 radio station in Victoria. “Look after yourself, have fun, and for goodness sake, smile,” he said during his sign off. The slogan helped him raise $10,000 for mental health supports for Foundry, previously known as the Victoria Youth Centre, in Victoria back in November.

He recently called it quits at the Zone, and with the help of his family back in England, he is about to hit play on a new chapter. “My grandfather passed away six months ago,” said the England-born host. “When I was back there for Christmas, he pulled me aside and said, ‘maybe you need to get out of where you’re at right now, in order to get out and to truly do your own thing, don’t be afraid.’” So, he did. From his Harry-Potter-like studio set up under the stairs in his bachelor pad, he will be hosting the show to help local artists and those struggling with mental health.
