After graduating from the University of Otago, Tim worked for a couple of years as a barrister and solicitor in his home town of Rotorua. He then changed course and went on to pursue a musical career which has spanned more than 20 years in a multitude of roles including promoter, producer, conductor and singer. He also has his pilot’s licence. Tim is married to a proud Cantabrian with whom he has two beautiful daughters - his finest achievement!
Jim’s been in the media for most of his working life, mainly in radio, starting as a journalist/newsreader. He produced Kerre Woodham Nights for many years, and also her Sunday morning show, Kerre’s Cafe, which ran on Newstalk ZB for 10 years, before moving to hosting Overnight Talk.
Roman graduated from The New Zealand Radio Training School in Wellington in 1995 and set off on a tour of New Zealand working for Radio New Zealand on a number of stations, before their commercial arm became The Radio Network. Having hosted breakfast and drive shows, Roman also branched out into TV where he hosted New Zealand’s first ever reality TV show: ‘The $20 Challenge London’.
Roman has two adult daughters, a Land Rover Defender and a love of spontaneous road trips around our gorgeous country. He is also an ambassador with Big Buddy New Zealand and has been a mentor with the organisation since 2016.
