Lecturer, Announcing and Production
Kim has over 40 years’ experience in radio (read that again) – 40 years in radio!
In that time, he has won over 20 international and national radio awards.
Kim has been a breakfast radio host for over 25 years and was part of the long-running More FM Auckland’s Breakfast Show Kim and Corbett for 16 years (he was the “Kim” bit in that).
He has also been Programme Director for Radio Hauraki, & Triple M 89 FM, Creative Director Radio Hauraki, and produced radio legend Blackie.
Kim is now imparting his ridiculously vast knowledge to the lucky students of the NZ Radio Training School. His skill set includes on air (obviously) with his technical skills in production and programming also coming to the fore. Having started in the vinyl days (that’s records not trousers), Kim has seen it all and he’s a hell of a nice guy, too.
