about dave

Dave Wright is one of Australia’s leading music radio personality's and one of this country’s most heard voices, with a Radio audience in excess of 1 million people per week.

Dave is under contract with Australia’s premier radio broadcasting company – ARN (Australian Radio Network), and is heard in Sydney on MIX 106.5 and in Melbourne through MIX 101.1.

Dave started his radio life in 1991 on a community radio station in Liverpool, Sydney on 2GLF, and followed his dream threw high school. After completing his Higher School Certificate (HSC) at Moorebank High School, Dave then studied Commercial Broadcasting at the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) before starting at his first commercial radio station CLASSIC GOLD 10.71am in Kingaroy, Queensland.

After two and a half years, Dave moved to the Capital Radio Network and EAGLE FM – 2GN Goulburn for a brief time in 1998, before moving onto The HUNTERS POWER FM, based in the Hunter Valley town of Muswellbrook in NSW within the same year.

In 1999, Dave became the station voice of NEWFM in Newcastle, NSW and Power FM in Ballarat, Victoria.

In 2000, he left the GRANT BROADCASTERS and POWER FM Muswellbrook to work at 2SM and the FM Super Network based in Pyrmont, Sydney. It was Midnight to Dawn, but the audience spanned the east coast of Australia. Dave landed the morning shift on the final broadcast for Dance station WILD FM. He then moved to the Australian Traffic Network (ATN) where he was the airborne traffic reporter for 2GB and 2CH for six months, before being poached by MIX 106.5, the station that Dave still calls home today.

Dave began work at MIX 106.5 in September 2000 (the week the Olympic Games in Sydney commenced) and worked as the sidekick to David Rymer, Dave’s radio hero. The combination was an instant hit with the Sydney audience and achieved a 7.9% share in Sydney Breakfast radio - a result that was historic for Breakfast radio on MIX 106.5 and a record that is also yet to be broken. In October 2001, Dave moved to the prime Drive Time shift, where he remains today. Dave archieved his career goal when he took MIX 106.5 Drive shift to Number 1 in February, 2005 - another first for MIX.

As well as radio, Dave is a sought after public speaker. Having been guest speaker at many business functions, conferences and fund raising events, he has also become an outspoken advocate and motivational speaker on weight loss. Weight loss is a topic very close to Dave’s heart, having lost more than 65kgs through revolutionary Gastric Lapband Surgery. Dave has been committed to helping others by motivational talks and sessions, sharing his story and experience.

Dave is also a sought after Master of Ceremonies (MC) after hosting events such as the pre-broadcast show of the 2005 Carols in the Domain, the launch of ZEST and LIMEBAR at the City Tattersalls Club, through to the series launch of the 2005 e90 series BMW and the Landrover Discovery for the ALTO Group, to name just a few.

Live Shows and appearances are also regular in the life of Dave Wright. Weekly you can catch Dave at both Camden RSL and Bankstown Sports Club hosting the Dave Wright Karaoke Show, as well as at PJ Gallagher's in Drummoyne and Parramatta as the official host of the Australian $50,000 singing competition along side renowned Sydney vocal group, The Robertson Brothers.

Dave also successfully runs his own business – WRIGHTGUY MEDIA IMAGING Pty Ltd., which is a voice-over/media company that supplies creative production and talent to Commercial Radio and Television and other public and media outlets both Australian and Worldwide.

Away from the microphone Dave is a self confessed animal lover! He has two dogs; Bundy, a 6 year old Maltese, and Harry, a 7 month old Cavalier King Charles X Miniature Fox Terrier, a Cockatiel named Kermit (just like Dave he is way too talkative), and an array of tropical fish! Dave also has a love for European vehicles; his Black 2005 BMW 5 Series Sport is the current flavour of the week, plus a great little Audi A3 Turbo. Just between us, Dave is also a bit of a self confessed nerd, but we wont bore you with those details just yet!
