Volunteers

We have some amazing volunteers working with us here at 1079Life. Some of them you’ll know from on-air, others work behind the scenes. Here’s a short run-down on the people you’re most likely to hear, see, or talk to on the phones during the work week. Make sure you say hi if you see them in town!

Takeover Announcer

Daz is studying Media & Journalism, and is currently the Takeover’s longest running member, having joined since early 2018!

If you’ve heard Daz before, you probably know that he’s a big fan of KFC (especially the Original Tenders Box), and often shares all about his kentucky fried experiences on air!

When Daz isn’t on air talking about KFC or what’s trending on YouTube, he’s either binge-watching Survivor or live-streaming his own gaming content on Twitch!

Dom

Takeover Announcer

Dom currently works as a media transfer specialist. Dom loves Jesus, music, Port Adelaide Power (Carn the 🍐) and more. When Dom isn’t on-air, he can be found playing games, listening to music, making music (more often than not in his own head), or eating food (because he’s Italian). You can follow Dom on Instagram at @d0m0n0m0n0m  

Takeover and Amped Announcer

Hello there!

Oli studied Marketing at the University of South Australia and has been a long standing metal head since hearing the soothing tunes of Linkin Park on Toonami many years ago…… 

When not on air with Maz and the Team or hosting Amped on Monday nights, Oli preoccupies himself with movies and popular culture. Other times, he’s painting or sitting back and listening to an album…… over a glass of milk of course.

“I drink milk and I know things”
