Born and raised in the small community of Poutu, at the age of 20, Leigh joined the police and moved to Auckland. After working in many roles, he retired from the police in 2009. From there, with his partner Lynley, they brought run down preschools in Auckland and turned them around.

Leigh’s love affair with the island started during COVID, when without visiting the island or a viewing, Leigh and Lynley put in an offer on Sunset Lodge. They have never looked back.

A lover of music, but cannot sing (except he knows he sounds good in the shower), Leigh plays 70’s and 80’s bangers on his show. He loves hosting, and his fans love listening, including his grandsons who tune in before bedtime.

Tune in to Leigh’s show on Monday at 6:00-9:00pm
