Host of Summer Noelle
Noelle McCarthy came to broadcasting via a half-finished thesis on Dracula and a one-year working holiday visa. After arriving in New Zealand from Ireland in 2003, her first job was at Auckland student radio station 95bFM where she voiced ads for a local Irish bar, and read the news. Summer Noelle came along in 2007, and -with one honorable exception- when she went in search of a White Christmas in Ireland-she's been presenting it ever since. She is a regular columnist for the NZ Herald's Viva website, where she writes about style, and for Metro magazine where she is a book reviewer.
