Stars to Host New Look Hauraki Breakfast

Stars to Host New Look Hauraki Breakfast

12 JANUARY 2014 - Radio Hauraki continues to build on its recent revamp with changes in the key breakfast and drive time slots. The new Hauraki Breakfast Show (6am-9am) sees Jeremy Wells team up with Matt Heath and Laura McGoldrick, while Mikey Havoc moves into afternoons (4pm-7pm).
Best known for his presentation of the satirical comedy shows, Eating Media Lunch and The Unauthorised History of New Zealand, Wells moves into breakfast after a year hosting Hauraki’s popular Saturday morning show The Saturday Special
"I've pretty much burnt every broadcasting bridge there is,” says Wells. “So it's no surprise that I've ended up co-hosting Hauraki's breakfast show. I give it 12 months before the Broadcasting Standards Authority hunts me down and expels me from radio indefinitely.”
Much loved for his work on cult television show Back Of the Y and his musical exploits in Deja Voodoo, Matt Heath moves to breakfast after three years hosting Hauraki’s afternoon drive show. 
“The new Hauraki is a sensational place to work,” says Heath.  “It will be an absolute honour to peel my sorry arse out of bed each morning for a hearty breakfast with my good mates Jerry and Laura.”
Group Content Director Mike McClung can’t wait for the new shows to hit the airwaves.
“Matt and Jeremy are smart, funny guys and talented broadcasters.  They’re two of the best in the business and I’m sure listeners will agree they’re very funny to listen to. We’re stoked that Laura is on board – she’s one of the country’s up and coming talents.  And it’s great to be able to bring Mikey Havoc into the prime time drive time slot, exposing his infectious energy and on-air genius to more people.”
Radio Hauraki 2014 weekday line up from 20 January:
6am – 9am          Matt Heath, Jeremy Wells and Laura McGoldrick
9am – 2pm          Angelina Boyd
2pm – 4pm         Alex Behan
4pm – 7pm         Mikey Havoc
7pm – 12pm       Georgia Cubbon
