Producer and Presenter Music 101
Alex Behan has a strong background in radio that began at high school in Christchurch when he built a low power station in his friend's garage.
Graduating from the New Zealand Broadcasting School in 1998 he interned at KCC FM in Whangarei before moving to Auckland to work for New Zealand on Air.
Promoting local acts in the early 2000s during a golden time in New Zealand music was a career highlight for Alex and led to further opportunities in music and media. He worked at both Channel Z and The Edge, presented music television for TV2 and C4 where he was able to interview a range of international musicians and hone presenting skills on a variety of formats.
Alex went travelling in 2004 and, despite having only what was in his backpack, managed to make a documentary in 2009 about the inner workings of the Mongolian capital Ulaan Baatar, and direct a music video fo`r Mongolian alt rock group Altan Urag.
Most recently he worked at Radio Hauraki where his highly regarded TUNEiversity helped open audiences up to new and interesting music.
Working at RNZ is the fulfilment of a lifelong ambition for Alex.
