Proudly SA born and bred (originally a South East lad), John has spent over 15 years in commercial radio and more than 13 of them with Austereo (now Southern Cross Austereo) which has included stints in Darwin, Melbourne, Perth but he’s always managed to find himself coming back home to Adelaide where he is well settled with his wife and 3 kids.
He’s been a part of the Adelaide media & entertainment scene for a long time and had numerous stints on SAFM as breakfast anchor to hosting every top rating shift across the day over the years, more recently John was in the role of SAFM Content Director for 3 years leading the station.
Triple M is where John now lives as Executive Producer and co-host for Dave Gleeson’s national “Rock of Ages” and “Rock Show” – as heard on the Triple M network nationally and localworks regional stations right around the country.
He’s been busy in 2012 as the Executive Producer for “The Rush Hour” with Roo & Ditts and EP and anchor of the “Dead Set Legends” with KG and Jars on Triple M.
His current gig also includes Executive Producer of “Triple M’s Hot Breakfast” as well as anchor of that show on the air.
John is no stranger to microphone and speaking work outside the studio with lots of experience over his career as an MC /Host/Compare of a wide range of events, big or small as well as voice overs for TV and Radio commercials or Corporate DVD’s. From packed Entertainment Centres, to outdoor events, to corporate functions, concerts or radio station events….. he’s pretty much had a crack at it all.
John studied pure mathematics at the University of Adelaide, before radio creativity came a calling as a full time gig after it was only a hobby whilst he grew up in the south east.
John is down to earth, fun and loves nothing better than engaging an audience whatever the size or format. His enthusiasm and passion for Adelaide, its businesses and lifestyle is infectious and he’s keen to continue to work for and represent at events / functions some of Adelaide’s top brands.
