I started my radio career at Broadcasting House, Wellington training as a studio audio engineer. I moved into the announcing field in the early 80s and was first posted to the community station Taumarunui.
Over 30 odd years (and some of those years were very odd) I have worked at 2XSFM Palmerston North, King Country Radio, Ski FM, 2XX Kapiti, More FM Kapiti, More FM Wellington, Beach FM, 2ZB Wgtn, and ZMFM Wellington as announcer / presenter.
I was one of the originals of 2XX Kapiti / Horowhenua in the late 80s where I started as Drive host and moved on to be long time Breakfast Host – before the station was sold to a network some 12 years later.
Having lived and worked through the early days of private radio, community focused local radio, and radio that truly reflects the community – my love for radio is permanently engrained. Now I’m stoked to be a part of the CFM team.
