Bob Leahy (broadcaster)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bob Leahy is a New Zealand radio and television broadcaster.

He started broadcasting with pirate radio station Radio Hauraki, on its first day of transmission, in 1966, in a pocket of international water, within New Zealand's Hauraki Gulf.[1]

Leahy has voiced many radio shows and news segments over the years, as well as hosting several television shows, in New Zealand.

He currently is employed by Newstalk ZB, a news and talkback station affiliated with the modern Radio Hauraki. His voice can still be heard announcing the news, some 45 years later, on Radio Hauraki.
