Jonny Marks

Community Production Manager

Jonny started working at Wellington Access Radio at the beginning of 2022 in the role of Technician and Music Programming, and became the Head Technician at the beginning of 24. Jonny’s work involves programming the station playlist, helping record and edit programmes, putting shows online for streaming, and sourcing new music (including the Friday Feature Album) to keep our playlist full of local greatness.

Jonny is also a board member of the Sound and Light Exploration Society, involved with Pyramid Club, and is an active musician – look him up and see if he has any gigs coming up!

Jonny has worked as a healthcare assistant and a teacher aide, and says that the best thing about working at Wellington Access Radio is ‘people’.

‘We live in a city full of community, people creating rich lives together, and alongside one another. Access Radio feels like a node, a confluence of stories, a place to gather together in advocacy and debate.’

Jonny also eats everything and loves flavour – and accepts any offers to try something new (his desk is at the station).

Brigid O'Flaherty

Community Outreach and Programming Lead

Brigid joined Wellington Access Radio in May 2022, and returned to the team in October 2023 after being on maternity leave.

Brigid’s role involves community networking and supporting new and existing programme-makers on their journey to become broadcasters. If you have an idea for a programme, she is the person to speak to!

Before working at Wellington Access Radio, Brigid worked as a designer and a pastry chef, even co-owning a Wellington café for ten years. Her life outside of work is currently focused on raising her one-year-old son, but in the past she has volunteered for the Special Olympics and Red Cross, helping with refugee resettlement.

Brigid loves music, enjoys a game of mini golf and is super passionate about cooking and baking…which is a great bonus to the rest of the Wellington Access Radio staff.
