95bFM Announce Breakfast Hosts

95bFM Announce Breakfast Hosts

Max Oldfield and Vince Wynn have been appointed the new hosts for the 95bFM Breakfast Show

Oldfield, Wednesday Drive host, and Wynn, a former bFM Breakfast Producer, have not worked together before but are enthusiastic about the arrangement. "When I was just doing drive I had no reason to get out of bed before midday. I'm looking forward to becoming a contributing member of society again.” says Max.

His co-host, Vince Wynn says it's really exciting to have the opportunity to add another chapter to the bFM breakfast story. “I've also been looking to for an excuse to completely kill my evening social life, so the appointment is a real blessing", he adds.

Soon-to-start General Manager Hugh Sundae agrees. “I tried several cool-Dad jokes on them and they looked at me like I was an idiot, so that’s probably good news for listeners.”
bFM Programme Director Pennie Black says that listeners can look forward to challenging radio with plenty of new features and a broad political canvas with Wynn and Oldfield.

The bFM Breakfast Show with Max and Vince - broadcasting live from 6am Monday March 23.

About 95bFM
In 1969, Radio Bosom was born as a student's capping stunt, broadcasting illegally from a boat in the Waitemata Harbour. Over the next few decades the Bosom morphed into the mighty 95bFM, the longest-standing independent radio station in New Zealand. The station is run by a full time core crew of 12 staff, backed up by numerous on-air DJ’s and volunteers.

95bFM is a hub for dedicated and passionate people from a wide range of musical genres and political persuasions. This makes for an electric atmosphere of independent news, views and Auckland’s most vibrant musical selection.
We think that radio is better when it's free from commercial pressures, and that it should be challenging without being inaccessible.

Maximilian Oldfield, 24, Central Auckland.
After graduating a Bachelor of Communication Studies in 2010, Max was scooped up by bFM as a receptionist before rapidly being ushered into the role of programming assistant and traffic manager. He has been the host of WednesdayDrive since February 2011. In 2013 Max took up a part time position at VICE NZ as events coordinator and marketing and sales assistant, as well as management roles for bFM favourites @peace, Louie Knuxx and Supervillains.

Vince Wynn, 24, New Lynn born and raised.
Vince began hanging out at bFM in 2007 as a teenager, and an intense love affair with the station soon developed. He volunteered as a producer and then became the producer for a range of different Mikey Havoc programmes on b. After dabbling in real estate and a bunch of ‘crappy, real life' jobs, Vince has been swayed back to his one true love: independent radio.
