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.
Producer Laura Kvigstad speaks with Wendy Preston of Mixit on the recent book launch of ‘It’s All of Us’. She then speaks with multiple organisations around refugees and the struggles faced with integration into New Zealand.
Lachlan spoke with ACT leader David Seymour to discuss Labour's new foreign buyer directive which will require foreign buyers of land over 50000 square metres to undergo stricter checks from the government before they are able to make their purchase.
This Day in History takes us back to 1947, for part two of an earlier segment on the Balfour declaration 30 years earlier. November the 30th, 1947 saw the start of a civil war in the British Mandate of Palestine between Muslims and Jews, which eventually spun out to open conflict with the newly-formed state of Israel and several of its neighbours.
This was followed by several more wars between Israel and various coalitions of its Arab neighbours, which culminated in the 1973 "Yom Kippur" War.
