Broadcaster & Voiceover Artist
Neil presented his first radio broadcast on New Years Eve 2007, co-hosting a program with his daughter Lucy, after her regular on-air partner pulled the pin and went to a party. The station manager was listening and was impressed enough to offer him a fill-in program and then, after a few weeks, a monthly two-program featuring music from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. The program - Radio Ga Ga - continued in its monthly time-slot through until October 2018.
In parallel, Neil became part of the 3WBC VFL Football Commentary Team, presenting all VFL and, more recently, VFLW games featuring the Box Hill Hawks. In September 2018, with both Hawks teams winning the premiership, it seemed like an ideal time to finish up with the Melbourne-based station and look for broadcasting opportunities closer to home in Geelong.
Since then, Neil has continued his broadcasting activities by:
- Setting up his own online radio station - goRadio.Live. goRadio.Live presents the best music of the past 70 years, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. The vast majority of the broadcast is automated however Neil usually presents at least three hours of music per week on the station.
- Establishing goFooty.Live - a group of presenters who broadcast all VFL and VFLW games involving our local team, the Geelong Cats. We are proud of the opportunities that goFooty.Live is offering student and recently graduated journalists.
- Presenting a weekly music program - Turn Up Your Radio - on Geelong's community radio station 94.7 The Pulse between October and March each year.
- Broadcasting a weekly sport / music / community program - 2 Blokes Chatting - on 94.7 The Pulse. Co-hosted by the other bloke, Rob Cameron, 2 Blokes Chatting is one of a handful of live programs being presented by The Pulse during the COVID-19 restrictions.
As part of his broadcasting activities, Neil also provides a voiceover service to a range of clients. This includes short messaging for IVR systems, content for online advertising, audio for YouTube videos and a range of other applications.
