Announcer Sarah Gandy makes her on air comeback

11 March 2015 - Former ZM radio announcer Sarah Gandy is returning to the airwaves after a successful stint as ZM’s Content Director.

Sarah’s love for radio hosting won out and NZME Radio is delighted to announce she will be joining The Hits and Mix later this year in an on air role.

Chief Content Officer for NZME Radio, Gemma Fordham says, “Sarah has worked tirelessly over the past 18 months to transition the ZM brand to what it is now. Sarah has lead the team with immense enthusiasm and passion. Sarah spoke to us some time ago about her desire to return to an on air role, she is an outstanding announcer and we are excited she will be joining the Hits and Mix.”

Sarah has been at ZM for 13 years, working her way up the ranks from an eager intern to Programme’s Assistant then Announcer, to Assistant Content Director and most recently Content Director.

Sarah Gandy says, “I’m so excited to be joining The Hits and Mix. I owe a lot to my time at ZM, and leaving the brand on a high is a real privilege. My first love really is presenting and music, so I can’t wait to get back on air and connect with a new audience.”

Ross Flahive will fill Sarah’s big shoes as ZM Content Director. Ross comes from Mediaworks where he has been running the Edge TV. Previous to this he held content roles with the Edge radio, More FM, C4 and a stint overseas in Dubai.

“Ross is hugely talented, we are extremely lucky to have him and look forward to him joining us later this year,” Fordham says.
