Stalwart broadcaster returns to 95bFM
The first time Mikey Havoc presented the breakfast show on Auckland’s 95 bFM station, it launched his broadcasting career and led to his own television show.
The second time he presented the show, he replaced Wallace Chapman and angry listeners called up to abuse him while others signed a petition to keep Chapman on.
And the third time, well, that started last week.
This time Havoc, whose real name is Michael Roberts, walks into the place of Hannah Renwick, a University of Auck- land BA student who has been in the job for less than a year.
Havoc started at the station in the early 90s, moving on to present the breakfast show from 1996 to 2002.
His second and highly controversial stint at the station started in 2006.
He left again in 2010 and a few years later moved to rock station Radio Hauraki.
bFM station manager Hugh Sundae hoped Havoc would play a role in training new talent.
‘‘Mikey is the essence of independent broadcasting who challenges everyone he works with to be brave and take risks,’’ Sundae said.
Mikey Havoc has gone back to bFM for the third time.
