The Wire is 95bFM's long-running daily bastion of news, current affairs and views through the bFM lens.
University drop-out and hospitality aficionado Harry Willis has been working at bFM since early 2017. When he’s not pouring your wine he’s reading up on international and local politics, watching film and amateurly photographing things.

The Auckland Art Gallery, Toi o Tamaki, is facing a funding shortage which may see it cutting opening hours or staff next year if the shortfall is not met.
The award winning gallery is currently open every day except for Christmas and attracts around 550,000 visitors annually.
The gallery’s Auckland Council funding has been cut from $12 million in 2012 to $6.9 million annually. Arts patron Dame Jenny Gibbs has called the current grant a disgrace and completely unsustainable.
Reuben McLaren spoke to Chris Brooks, the CEO of Regional Facilities Auckland, of which the Auckland Art Gallery is a division.

Development organisation Oxfam says the Paradise Papers are clear evidence of an unjust global system, that allows those with immense wealth to avoid paying their fair share of tax, fuelling poverty and inequality.
The Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) across multiple organisations have been working for months on the Paradise Papers, which include over 13 million documents in total, making it the largest data leak in history.
India speaks to Oxfam New Zealand’s Executive Director Rachael Le Mesurier about the revelations.
This week on the Tuesday Wire, we look at the Paradise Papers, which examine how the world's elite use offshore tax havens, Labour's changes to paid parental leave and the Equal Pay Act, and accessibility issues in Auckland's transport system. Cartoonist Toby Morris also explains the ethics of cartoons and the line of racism and on the Green Desk we look at warmer oceans and their effects on reefs.
