Voice FM will be saying good-bye to one its most iconic presenters this month when Ian Andersen will retire his much loved ‘Catching Up’ program.

Ian, who has also served as the President of the stations board for a number of years, will be stepping down from the microphone in order to focus on other things and also to spend more time with his family.

“Ian has been a stalwart of the station for a number of years,” said General Manager Damien Johnson.

“He has seen the station survive some incredibly difficult times and his direction and willingness to make difficult decisions has been essential for Voice FM’s survival”.

As a show, Catching Up has featured some great guests ranging from musicians; sports personalities and politicians, and has had a strong local focus, highlighting Ian’s passion for the community.

“We hope that the strong local presence that Catching Up has developed will continue through our new breakfast show ‘The Double Shot’, which has received a lot of positive feedback”, Mr Johnson said.

“We know that Ian’s departure will be a time of mixed emotions and that many will miss his presence on air, he has been such a prominent figure for the station for quite some time now. “
