Radio LIVE has appointed Duncan Garner as permanent host of the 3pm-6pm Drive show.
Duncan starts his new role on 1 December, leaving the gallery, where he is the 3 News Political Editor.
Jana Rangooni, General Manager – Talk Brands, MediaWorks Radio, says Duncan brings a rare combination of news acumen, and great personality and flair to his new role.
“Duncan is one of the most entertaining people in the news media but most people outside the business have yet to see this side of him,” she says.
“He has a wide and varied range of interests, a wicked sense of humour and is a great journalist who is not afraid to ask anyone the tough questions.
“These qualities make him the perfect person to take the reins of the Radio LIVE Drivetime show.”
Patrick Gower will replace Duncan as Political Editor for TV3, effective 1 December.
From today, Radio LIVE Business Editor Andrew Patterson will be the interim host of the Drive show, and hold that position until Duncan joins the station.
