Radio man's child abuse hearing adjourned

CHILD abuse allegations brought against Mid North Coast "voice of radio" Nick O'Callaghan were back before the courts on Thursday.

The 52-year-old former news director of Radio 2CS and Star FM in Coffs Harbour stands accused of sexually assaulting a nine-year-old girl.

He was arrested earlier this year and has since been charged with aggravated indecent assault and five counts of possessing child abuse material.

Following a brief mention in the Port Macquarie Local Court on Thursday, the case was adjourned until November 7.

Mr O'Callaghan remains on bail.
