Radio Sport Breakfast
6AM - 9AM weekdays
With Kent Johns, Nathan Rarere and Marc Peard
Kent Johns has been with Radio Sport since 1999. After slaving away for countless years he was rewarded with his first fulltime radio job producing for Graeme Hill on Afternoon Sport, the show he then went on to host. Kent's first crack at hosting, however, was on Night Sport, co-hosting with Kath Harby-Williams, as one half of the Night Riders. After three years on the night shift he moved to weekend breakfast shows until he took over the Afternoon slot and The Sports Vox in 2011. He is now part of the Radio Sport Breakfast with Nathan and Marc.
Nathan Rarere (Nato) arrived at the Radio Sport studios in February 2016 and we haven't been able to get rid of him. We've tried fly spray, throwing things at him, tempting him toward the doorway with burger vouchers... but he's still here. So he might as well stay.
We asked Nate to write a bio about himself, one where he might mention being in media since 1991 in an award winning career that saw him moving through the worlds of radio, TV and advertising. But all he did was write a three-page conspiracy essay about how the Hawke's Bay's season was dudded by the Mitre 10 Cup ruck rules.
Marc Peard was a passionate radio school graduate working for Radio Sport in Wellington doing Sideline Eye and Sevens Coverage. He was quickly picked up by ZM’s breakfast crew at the time – Polly and Grant - and renamed “New Hot Guy”– where he then spent 10 years producing one of New Zealand’s most well-known and top rating entertainment breakfast shows. During this time, as well as working with some of New Zealand's top radio talent, Marc also kept his passion for sport going by being game announcer for the Wellington Saints, and a regular American Sports contributor to Capital Punishment. Marc made the move with Polly and Grant to the Hits in 2014 and helped launch this brand – before making the homecoming move back to where his true passion lies – with Radio Sport Breakfast.
Marc loves all things sport – but has quickly established himself as an American Sports specialist. When Marc’s not watching, playing or talking about sport – he is the proud Dad and Stepdad of three kids (and is busy playing fantasy sports).
