Radio

2005-2015

I started with Mediaworks in October 2005 as a creative writer and occasional on air announcer where I regularly voiced commercials and was involved in promotional events. By July 2006 I had moved to More FM Canterbury as writer and weekend announcer.

While in this role I set up, uploaded and managed an up-to-date “Voice Bank”, where copywriters could find voice talent from within Mediaworks nationally.

In November 2008 I moved to Palmerston North to host what would become an award-winning drive show on More FM Manawatu, with co-host Justin Evans. Here I moved from creative writing into promotions and marketing, and started MCing, which would soon become a favourite part of my role.

I hosted various events including New Years in the Square, Festival of Culture, Wine Clubs, Small Town Big Heart, White Ribbon Day and many more.

August 2011 saw a move to Kapiti to take on the role of Operations Manager for Kapiti-Horowhenua, along with hosting the local breakfast show. I continued to MC throughout Kapiti, Horowhenua and Wellington, and was a favourite for sporting events such as the Women’s Triathlon and Rugby Awards.

It was during this time that I ventured to Wellington to host a couple of Drive shows on The Breeze (a long day considering my mornings involved hosting More FM Kapiti’s breakfast show) and MC the Wellington Dragon Boat Festival.

In August 2013 I took on a contract role with The Edge Network to coordinate their award winning Social Games promotion.

At the end of this, I moved to Hamilton to be their More FM Brand Manager and Announcer for More FM Waikato. It was here that I started on field announcing for local rugby teams the Chiefs and Waikato Mooloos.
