I’m proud to say that I currently work as the Programming manager of a strong and successful community radio station, 2BOB Radio in the Manning Valley. After starting test broadcasts in 1985 2BOB has now been broadcasting in this region for some 31 years. Over at least the next 12 months I have the pleasure of working with them to increase the number of interviews we put to air and further engage the station with the community of the Manning Valley.
In 2016 I volunteered as a Radio Programming Trainer at Mix FM – Fiji’s Best Mix. In this role I trained the announcers in presentation style, interview technique, research skills and preparation. The position was a part of the Australian Government’s Australian Volunteer For International Development (AVID) program which brings people into developing nations all over the world to volunteer in just about every field you can imagine.
Radio is, and has always been, my passion. Starting out in Community media in my home town, Bega, on the South Coast of NSW, I’ve known from a very young age that radio is where I will spend my life. With an ever growing technical base for my industry, I set this site up as a space for me to share the work I do.
I hope that this will encourage me to work in a range of fields and do as much work as possible. Despite starting out with a strong determined belief that I would work only in audio I’m becoming more and accepting of and interested in the blending of audio, video, print and photography in multimedia story telling in this online environment.
