Scott Radovanovich

Rado has been part of the landscape in the Top of the South for the past 10 years.

Croatian/Maori descent which should’ve equalled a good looking guy … but unfortunately, he’s more like the Dalmatian dog than the glorious looking Dalmatian people from the Croatian Dalmatian Islands, nice personality though.

Father of Four Girls, 3 female dogs and still not allowed the rugby channel.

22 years in broadcasting so far … hope it continues!

Claim to fame, All Black TJ Perenara is my sister in laws cousins son … hoorah, an All Black in the whanau!

I play a mean Maori 3 strum on the guitar.

Broadcasting moments…

  • Getting berated by Gordon Ramsay for supplying Maccas for Breakfast
  • Once stole Andrew Mehrtens All Blacks Ford while he was in our studio
  • Kidnapping Simon Dallow for a $20 000 ransom
  • Jamie Oliver giving me his place to stay in London
  • Hanging out with the original Hi 5 crew…that went well into the night
  • Being a part of the ‘Save our Makos’ campaign
  • Running sideline for Radio Sport at our Mighty Makos home games and being part of their winning semi-final huddle when they smashed Canterbury at home in 2014
  • Being part of the first Mitre 10 Dream Home TV show
  • Helping raise over a million dollars for charities over the years
  • Commentating for Radio Sport the Silver Ferns vs Jamaica test last year
  • Meeting you all by phone, in person, online

There are two mantras I carry with me every day:

"Plan your Work then Work your Plan" and "If you have no confidence in self, then you are twice defeated in the rae of life".
