Co-host of Morning Report
A presenter for more than 30 years, Geoff is known around the country as the voice of Morning Report. Generations of New Zealanders have woken up to hear his morning welcome "kia ora tatou".
Geoff joined the NZBC in Dunedin in 1970 after emigrating from Britain in 1965 and working in banking.
He joined the Report team in 1975 when the programme was introduced and, apart from three years reading news on the then commercial network, has been there ever since.
Geoff hosted Election Night specials in 1978, 1981, 1984, 1987 and 1990.
In recent years he has made trips to China, Korea, Vietnam, and the UK to make programmes. In 2002 he went to North Korea, the first New Zealand broadcaster to do so.
In 2005 Geoff was awarded an honorary doctorate in literature by Victoria University of Wellington.
Geoff was given a special award for outstanding contribution to radio in New Zealand at the 2007 New Zealand Radio Awards.
