Volunteer Profile

Lloyd Davies

Announcer & Panel Op

Lloyd was born and raised in Dannevirke where the only two radio stations, 2ZA Palmerston North (Commercial) and 2YZ Napier (National), had clear reception in the 50’s and 60’s Nevertheless he was still inspired him to seek a broadcasting career one day. Over 50 years later it happened! Lloyd’s announcing and panel operating "career” began late in 2005 at Village Radio continuing until the beginning of 2010 when he resigned due to personal and professional commitments. He served on the Village Radio Trust from 2006 to 2009.

Lloyd rejoined Village Radio in January 2012.

The opportunity to initially become part of Village Radio was a dream come true. In his early 20’s Lloyd was accepted for the NZBC Broadcasting School and concurrently offered a position as a social worker. The latter was too good to turn down resulting in over 40 years working in social and health services delivery and management. Lloyd is a qualified mediator and a celebrant.

A widower, his main interests are, family (two daughters - one involved in television programme production at Channel 7 in Sydney, three granddaughters and one grandson, study, completed a Diploma in Law in 2014 and currently studying for a Bachelor of Social Sciences, playing and listening to music (he has fairly cosmopolitan tastes!), photography, cycling and travel.
