Blair Dowling

Born in Morrinsville and grew up on a farm, rode dirt bikes, learnt drums and dreamt of being an All Black.

Married a girl from the Bay and now have 2 children Josh and Jordan.

The first word I ever said as a kid was 'ray-dio' and ironically that is what I left school to do and have been doing ever since.

In the weekends you will find me behind the drums in a pub or at a private function, mowing lawns or driving the kids somewhere.

I love living in the Waikato, it's always been my home, growing up here and working on The Hits Waikato is a real privilege!

I know every shortcut, every secret spot and most of all I get to be part of this stunning region everyday on-air.

Why did get into radio?  

Initially it was a love of music but over the years it has become so much more. 

It's talking with people, it's being part of a community, it's being part of someones day, everyday.

Love it
