Duncan Garner Starts Monday on Radio Live ‘Drive’

RadioLIVE’s new DRIVE show begins on Monday 3 December, with Duncan Garner as host of the 3pm-6pm programme.

The face of 3 News’ political reporting for nearly ten years, Duncan is trading in the halls of parliament for the RadioLIVE studio. His new show will mix current affairs and breaking news with a range of entertaining and popular features, including the latest in food, wine, gardening, music, and film.

Garner’s infectious energy and enthusiasm, combined with a razor sharp intellect and the ability to get to the bottom of every story, means weekday afternoons are guaranteed to entertain and inform.

Duncan Garner says: "I can't wait to rip into it quite frankly. The programme will hold the decision makers to account and we'll have a heap of fun and laughs along the way. If you're looking for relevancy and irreverence, tune in."

Alongside his RadioLIVE duties, Duncan Garner will co-host new TV3 current affairs programme 3rd Degree, which starts in 2013.


DRIVE with Duncan Garner: 3pm-6pm weekdays on RadioLIVE.
