RadioLIVE is proud to announce the launch of Rural Exchange (REX), a new cross-platform show that will provide modern, entertaining and informative content for the sector that is the backbone of New Zealand’s economy.
Airing Saturdays and Sundays from 5am-7am right here on RadioLIVE, Rural Exchange will provide a new voice for farmers and the show’s two hour, twice weekly format will allow in-depth examination of the latest innovations and technologies within the agribusiness sector.
Rural Exchange is hosted by Richard “Loey” Loe, Sarah Perriam and Hamish McKay.
Richard Loe is the legendary former All Blacks forward who wore the black jersey in three world cups. ‘Loey’ has a lifetime of work in rural circles and currently owns and operates a sheep and beef farm in the Waimakariri Gorge.
Sarah Perriam was born and raised on a sheep and beef farm in Central Otago and has spent the last half decade producing, presenting, directing and creating Rural TV content.
Hamish McKay may live and work in the city, but cut him and he’ll bleed rural. The former Newshub sports presenter has established himself as a successful real estate agent in Auckland but many may not be aware that he was a New Zealand Shearing Championships junior finalist, he still milks regularly on his sister’s farm in the Manawatu and he has an association with some of the country’s leading thoroughbred studs, including Waikato Stud.
Rural Exchange is produced in association with Carter's Tyres and owner Garry Carter is well aware of how important the farming community is to his company.
