Andrew Dickens

Profile

Newstalk ZB Host, MC

A self-described “grown-up breakfast host”, Andrew Dickens has won a legion of fans with his relaxed, witty and well-informed style of broadcasting. A 25-year veteran, Andrew has dodged Molotov cocktails in London and rubbed shoulders with movie gentry in Cannes. When he’s not engaging listeners with his mellow charm and encyclopaedic knowledge of rock music, he likes to dodge traffic on his bike, to ogle bike gear in shops and to read in his purpose-built library.

COMMUNICATION AGENCIES ASSOCIATION (CAANZ) - CAANZ AXIS SPEAKER EVENT, 2014 - MC

"Andrew hosted and directed the full day event to an audience of over 200 personnel. He entertained and informed in the changeovers and facilitated question and answer sessions. Andrew understood the concepts that were being presented and related to both the speakers and the audience. Andrew had researched all speakers as he has questions on hand to avoid those 'awkward moments' when no questions came from the floor. Andrew kept the event on schedule and was vigilant about matters such as presentation, staging and backstage issues. We found Mr Dickens a joy to work with. He followed our briefs completely and was an entertaining and engaging MC. We would most certainly recommend him for similar engagements."
