Emerging Planners Congress MC

Al Columbus is one of Nelson Radio’s longest-lasting personalities, starting his broadcasting career here in 1983.

He left 18 months later for a positon in Blenheim but returned to the region in 1988 to the legendary Fifeshire FM.  He continued working at Fifeshire House for 29 years, garnering several NZ Radio Award nominations and wins, before ending his fulltime work in radio to join Stonewood Homes as a New Home Consultant.

That’s quite a shift in careers but one he enjoys very much.

Al is also a Marriage Celebrant, Event MC and Voiceover Artist.
