New announcer BT, wearing a grey t-shirtWe always love to see our family grow, it’s an exciting time! And, from next week there’s a brand new voice on the air to keep you company every weekday afternoon from 12 – 3pm. Afternoons with BT will be a whole lot of fun, and you’re bound to learn a bit of music trivia along the way!

So, who is BT? You may actually remember him… he was one of our recent interns, who joined Dan on Brekky while Kirste was away. But, who is the man behind the mo?

Here’s everything you need to know:

What’s your full name? Brendan Daniel Taylor

Who’s in your family? My wife Megan, 4-year-old son Leif and 1 and a bit-year-old daughter Sullivan

What did you do before joining 98five? Before 98five I was a Pastor at Kingsley Church of Christ, I took on a bunch of roles over that time, starting in youth and finishing up as gathering and generations pastor.

Who’s your favourite music artist and why? I will go with Queen. There are probably half a dozen I could choose, but Queen’s Greatest Hits box set was the first album I bought with my own money, and they were really my gateway into wanting to listen to music chosen by me, not by mum and dad or the radio.

What’s the best concert you’ve been to? Bruce Springsteen. So good live. He played a massive set, the band was tight and Tom Morello jumped on guitar for the tour which was a very cool experience.

Who’s your favourite sports team? The Zimbabwe cricket team. I am not a huge franchise follower, I just enjoy watching people who are good at sport play sport.

What are you looking forward to the most with joining the on-air team? It seems like the carry on around the office will be a whole lot of fun. I really enjoy seeing what creative people can create together, so I think getting to be part of those conversations and brainstorming sessions will be great. Getting to see something from its creation right through to the execution of it on air.

Join BT on-air 12 to 3 weekdays from next Monday!
