Harry Willis and producers Ben Goldson and Lachlan Balfour bring you bFM's daily news & current affairs show, including our U.S. news feature State of the States with a correspondent from WNYU News, as well as a regular chat with Labour Minister Andrew Little.
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.
