Veteran 3AW radio presenter Ernie Sigley took part in the Leukaemia Foundation World’s Greatest Shave yesterday by colouring his hair red white and blue.

The event was live to air on the popular Friday Lunch segment which he co-hosts with Darren James and Denis Walter.

The colours which were voted for by listeners on the 3AW website are the same colours as Ernie's favourite AFL club, the Western Bulldogs. The station also ran an appeal, raising over $10,000.00, with listeners and business's pledging donations for Leukaemia Foundation throughout the entire program. See the video here
