From regional stations, including Bendigo and Geelong, all the way to the metro markets of Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide, Ferg has applied his amazing talents bringing success & experience to every radio show,  including – breakfast on Mix FM Sydney & Drive on Triple M Adelaide, to name just a few.

No matter what shift or time slot, whether paneling or on air, Ferg’s professional preparation and delivery is always a standout for the station and its clients.

With a voice like warm caramel that is very deep and very clear, Fergs voice over work for both radio and TV commercials, corporate videos and event intros has seen him chosen as the face and voice for national clients such as National Builders and the voice of  RM Williams.

You may also hear Fergs talents as he is the promo voice for TV channel - C31.  Throughout his radio career, he’s done countless on air crosses for clients.

As an accomplished MC, Ferg has hosted literally hundreds of events - court announcer for basketball games, black tie balls, charity events, auctions, awards nights, business functions or his much loved local cricket club awards night. 

Ferg easily assimilates with his audience and finds a level of comfort for them with his easy yet professional style.
