Big news from 95bFM

Big news from 95bFM

“I’m very excited,” says Harper

Everyone knows that bFM’s ads are really funny.

Actually, sometimes people who hate the forward thinking music we play, our occasionally deeply unprofessional hosts, and our flat refusal to play by the damn rules… sometimes even those people love our ads.

Outgoing bFM Creative and Friday Drive Host Jack Riddell is gutted to be leaving, but needs better money, frankly. He will be sorely missed xoxoxo.

Now, bFM are excited to introduce the latest in a long, auspicious line of bFM Creative Geniuses: Joseph Ernest Harper.

Formerly of Christchurch, Joseph is now firmly implanted in Auckland, and ready to tackle all that lies ahead.
He’s a comedian, playwright, occasional blogger, and a part time philanthropist, and he’s giving it all up to work for us.

After being nominated for (but never winning) many of the country’s top theatre and comedy awards, Harper is looking forward to having a crack in the wholesome and well respected world of niche advertising.

“I’m very excited,” says Harper (pictured).

Let's hope he does a good job...

To congratulate everyone, send condolences, or even get Joseph to write a really great script for YOU, hit us up at: – 09 309 4831 – PO Box 4560, Shortland Street
