Christine Holmes

Client Liaison & Breakfast Show Host

Hi, I’m Christine but more commonly known as Crezza/Crez.

Like a lot of people, Covid-19 made me take a hard look at where I was at in life. During lockdown, after a phone call with my Dad, I realized life was too short to not be doing what I love.

My Dad was a busy man, but he always made time for what made him happy. What I love is music and community, and what better place that combines those two together than The MOST 100.4 FM!

Having trained at WITT for Radio Broadcasting and then spending many years in the hospitality industry telling myself that radio was merely a hobby, it was time to turn that passion into a career.

Once we were safely in Level 1 I went door knocking. 

I made a guest appearance on the Friday Free For All with Rich in June but didn’t appear to wow them with my enthusiasm and love for Pop Punk 😉 But I persevered and made my keenness for the station known. 

In September I took the position as Client Liaison, and when an opportunity came to take on the Breakfast Show Host role, I put my hat in the ring to be considered for the position.  

I am very grateful for The MOST for giving me this opportunity and welcoming me in the team.

I look forward to serving and engaging with this progrssive community.

Kia ora!

My name is Kerry, born and bred in Taranaki. I love this place and the people who live here. I can’t imagine living anywhere else.

I live with my wife and 5-year-old daughter and I also have three grown-up children in different parts of the country.

Whānau is everything to me.

I’m passionate about music. I like listening to it, playing it, writing it, recording and mixing it. For many years I made a living playing in cover bands, working for sound companies and running recording studios.

I’m still involved with live music. I have mixed Front of House sound for the Gables Stage at WOMAD NZ in Taranaki for the last 16 festivals, and will continue to do so.

I also play in a band with my 19-year-old son.

I’m so happy to be a crew member at The MOST – it’s a privilege to work with such passionate people who love music as much, if not more than I do.

This short extract from my job description tells you everything you need to know about The MOST FM and our vision, it says: “This position requires you to love music, Kiwi music, new music, indie music and all music.”

Hi, I’m Natalie!

I take care of all things administration at The MOST FM to ensure the smooth operation of Taranaki’s Community Radio Alternative.

I love the vibe and energy that more than 40 volunteers create for the common goal of music and friendship!

I trained as a chef in Wellington and co-owned two cafe’s with my husband Nick before moving up to Taranaki to open the Shoe Clinic and raise our two children, Charlotte & Patrick.

We absolutely love Taranaki, especially the great outdoors. Pukekura Park is such an awesome spot and we always look forward to concerts at The Bowl of Brooklands!

I have always enjoyed listening to music and going to concerts, however The MOST FM has definitely broadened my musical horizons – Thanks The MOST!

Brittany Baker - Marketing Support

Hey there! I’m Brittany and I’m the face behind some of The MOST’s digital content.

My role is to nurture the station’s online presence through effective social media engagement and communications.

I hail from a far-away land called the United States – you may have heard of it. I have been fortunate enough to find myself among this amazing Taranaki crew while I work remotely from the east coast of New Zealand.

I studied Broadcast Journalism in Colorado before making the leap to do more digital content creation and social media management, which allows me creative freedom and the ability to work with all sorts of people!

I am thrilled to be a part of The MOST’s team. Such talent, such community, such fun! Oh and while I have you here – be sure to like our Facebook page 😉
