Paul Van Lieshout Hunt
Presenting: The Mag
I’m a community broadcaster with five years experience, having previously worked for The Wire and presented Morning Magazine / The Mag for 3 years at RTRFM on Wednesday and Thursdays.
I’m in my last year at Edith Cowan University studying a double-major in Broadcasting and Journalism, with hopes of becoming a political journalist when I graduate.
I’m also a master of ceremonies, and I regular voice commercials and volunteer for a variety of not-for-profit organisations and charities.
How did you become involved?
I pitched a new program idea to the programming committee when he saw the need for an LGBTI radio show in WA. The program was approved and went to air for the first time on February 1st 2010. Since then RTRFM has been a big part of my life.

- Leonard Cohen – Suzanne
- Stan Getz – The Girl From Ipanema
What is the best thing about being involved with the station?
A real sense of community and passion for local stories. I love being able to constantly learn something new through interviews and chats with people.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you in the RTRFM studio?
When former Chief Justice Michael Kirby told me I was pronouncing my last name wrong.
If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?
What do you do in real life?
I study full-time and work at The Moon Cafe.
