Comedian Guy Williams Joins the Edge


New Zealand’s number one radio afternoon show* has a fresh new line up for 2014.

Kiwi comedian Guy Williams, winner of New Zealand’s most prestigious comedy accolade, the 2012 Billy T Award and familiar face from TV3’s Jono and Ben at Ten will join current Edge hosts Sharyn Casey and Clint Roberts weekdays from 3-7pm, forming a fresh new team as The Edge Afternoons with Guy, Sharyn & Clint.

“It has been my dream to work on The Edge radio station ever since last week when they told me I would be working on The Edge radio station. I’m super excited to make my dream a reality,” says Williams.

The Edge Programme Director, Leon Wratt adds: “Having Guy join listener favourites Sharyn and Clint and The Edge family is the best possible result for us.”

“It’s great to have a new dynamic team on The Edge. They’ve got the energy, fresh ideas and are not afraid to get their hands dirty, what more could I ask for from a radio show?”

The Edge announced the new line-up to their listeners this afternoon with a two-part video starring Guy, Sharyn, Clint, Leon and Chang Hung who returns to The Edge as the show’s producer.
