The ultimate corporate
bike challenge

Luke McKew

Luke started his career in radio 11 years ago, playing a key role in the launch of the successful Nova Network in Brisbane. At only 26, Luke was promoted to become Chief Technology Engineer of the Brisbane market looking after Nova, digital offerings Smooth FM, Koffee and more recently the multi-million dollar national Coles Radio service. Luke’s keen eye for detail and broadcast skillset have taken him around the globe delivering major broadcast projects viewed by millions worldwide.

When he's not tending to the health and well-being of Brisbane’s No.1 Radio Station, Luke loves spending time outdoors either playing golf, fishing on his boat or keeping fit running, weight training and of course cycling.

Tackling the Chain Reaction ride in 2017 is about challenging himself both physically and emotionally.
This is not the first adventure challenge for Luke, who also took on the Kokoda Track in 2015 for charity Mates4Mates with Nova's Ash, Kip and Luttsy and Channel 7.

As someone who has felt the effects of losing a sibling and illness in his family, Luke is motivated by the opportunity to give back, raise awareness of children's charities and make his family and friends proud.
