Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli

Herald Sun - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

WIPPA stud­ied build­ing man­age­ment at TAFE in Mel­bourne be­fore de­cid­ing his vo­ca­tion was in com­mer­cial ra­dio. Af­ter putting a demo tape to­gether, he se­cured a gig on coun­try ra­dio in Ade­laide and was even­tu­ally picked up by Nova, where he worked on break­fast ra­dio in Perth.

His big break came when he moved back to Mel­bourne and joined Nova’s na­tional drive show.

He has since moved to Syd­ney where, along­side Ryan “Fitzy” Fitzger­ald, he hosts morn­ing break­fast on Nova 96.9 in Syd­ney. Melburnians can hear the show week­days on Nova from 6pm to 7pm.

Wippa lives in Syd­ney’s east­ern sub­urbs with his wife, Lisa, and their two chil­dren, Teddy, 20 months, and 15-week-old Jack (pic­tured right).

If we sleep un­til 6am then that is con­sid­ered a sleepin. Then it is a huge ef­fort to get ev­ery­one or­gan­ised with their sippy cups and blan­kets just to do a lap of the park.
