Take 5's search for Australia’s hottest radio hunk!

Who can snatch this claim to fame from Jonesy?

By As told to Take 5
Whoever coined the term 'a face fit for radio' must not have met the men of the Aussie airwaves. There are some real hunks in studios across the nation and it's time they got the attention they deserve.
Two years ago, Take 5's 500,000 readers crowned Brendan 'Jonesy' Jones the hottest man in Aussie radio. It was a hard-fought win that dominated the airwaves from coast to coast.

This year, the nationwide search to find Australia's hottest radio hunk is back on!
Take 5 magazine is asking radio listeners all over Australia to vote on who turns their dial up to the max.
So far 3486 readers and radio listeners have taken part and the top 20 so far are listed below in alphabetical order. But there is still time to nominate your wireless wonderboy.
As the currently reigning champion of Take 5's Radio Hunk, Jonesy stared in a sexy photoshoot inspired by Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and Channing Tatum's Magic Mike.

When we showed him these snaps, the veteran funnyman was impressed.
"Not too shabby for a man of my advancing years," he grinned. "This being a hunk is quite fun. I reckon I could give Hugh Jackman a run for his money."
This year, he's back in the top 20 together with talkback king Ray Hadley, 64, larrikin, Dave Hughes, 48, and Ed Kavalee, 39. Shock jock legend Kyle Sandilands, 47, also gets a look-in.
