Stuart has been back working for Radio New Zealand since 2001, but started his broadcasting career with the New Zealand Broadcasting Corporation in 1976. Those were the days of regional postings for announcers, and Stuart worked variously at 2ZA Palmerston North, Radio Nelson, 3ZM Christchurch and then on The Tonite Show and Allniter in Wellington.
In 1982, Stuart moved to Perth where he became a television presenter and newsreader for the Channel 7 Network. He moved to the UK in 1984 and for the next two years worked as a "voice-over" presenter for commercial radio stations, television, advertising agencies and the BBC.
Between 1984 and 1990 Stuart had a major career change, becoming a director of a publicly listed Australian company and ran the pan-European marketing activities of the organisation. Returning to New Zealand, Stuart worked for Radio Pacific, and Fifeshire Radio in Nelson, before joining Telecom, and subsequently New Zealand Post in sales and marketing roles.
Stuart can be heard on the Radio New Zealand National every Saturday and Sunday morning. At other times he can be found fishing, gardening, thinking about politics, reading and/or travelling.
