Todd is a vastly experienced award nominated radio broadcaster and has worked in a variety of formats over a 30+ year period.
Previous to his role here at Coast Access Radio, he was the Operations Manager, Breakfast Host and News Director at Beach FM radio in Paraparaumu from 2003-2016. Prior to that he was the programme director, morning host and breakfast news reader on Radio 2XX in Paraparaumu. He has also worked in Masterton, Tauranga and Wellington in commercial radio, as well as done Access Radio in Wairarapa and Wellington.
He also has a decade in the insurance industry. But his skills and interests are mostly in the areas of current affairs, presentation, customer service, sports, programming, and music. He also says that problem solving and mathematical tasks highly motivate him.
In his spare time he’s an armchair sport supporter, and has been known to chase a cricket ball around a field in summer. Pub quizzes have been known to get him out of the house. He enjoys a good walk and a simple diet of meat and vegetables with a side of pies and olives.
His mentor in the broadcasting world is Lindsay Yeo. He says “we share dress sense and a desire to entertain and inform.”
