Heading Beach FM’s show “The Time Machine”, John has a complete broadcasting CV. He started as a technician at 4ZA in Invercargill 50 years ago, and since then has been involved in most aspects of broadcasting such as: sports, current affairs, continuity announcing, management and software development. Most of his broadcasting has been in smaller stations in New Zealand, but he has also worked on both commercial and non-commercial networks in both New Zealand and overseas. He was manager of the first station to open in Levin, and announced on the first day of permanent broadcasting in the Kapiti/Horowhenua. John has been part of the Beach FM team for more than 10 years, and is very proud of it as one of the last examples of local radio.
