Mike Puru is leaving The Edge!
I started at The Edge when there was no Internet or email and we played CDs in a studio in Hamilton, broadcasting to Waikato only, we have definitely come a long way.
I have had an incredible time at The Edge, growing as a broadcaster and growing as a human and it’s been a privilege being part of an outstanding team. The travel, the stars, the laughs and experiences, but more importantly the people…the people like you who listen, the people who take the time who say; “thanks for making me laugh each morning". Radio is incredibly powerful in the way it becomes part of people lives, we all share the ups and downs, the laughter and sadness, and that is quite a privilege when you get to do it for 20 years.
I will never forget everyone's support when I came out of the closet. You…the listeners, have helped me through some tough times and celebrated the good times, I feel like you are all part of my family so thanks for everything.
I particularly want to thank Jay-Jay and Dom for all their support over the years, they are an incredible force in radio and I have learnt so much from them.
No doubt you will see and hear the next exciting chapter.
