Welcome to Steve Hart Media

Steve Hart’s first time behind the mic was way-back – when he worked as a mobile DJ in the UK. It was a short-lived career though, as he was quickly picked up to work as a resident jock at a Mecca Leisure nightclub. A string of residencies at top clubs across Essex, London, and Kent followed during the course of almost 15 years on the club circuit.

Overlapping this was 10 years volunteering at a Hospital Radio station, and that led to work at Radio Top Shop, where Steve honed his on-air skills. He went on to host breakfast at Basildon Radio.

A career in journalism followed. First reporting news for his local newspaper, he rose to chief sub editor, and then worked as a freelance stringer for national newspapers, TV & radio – including feature reporting shifts at BBC Essex and new reporting shifts at Essex Radio.

There was a stint in corporate communications and contract publishing before he moved from London to work in the newsroom of the New Zealand Herald in Auckland.

Steve recorded his first podcast in 2008, the radio bug bit again and he began hosting a syndicated radio show in 2011. First came the Steve Hart Radio Show of world news, an 80s dance music show came next, and now he hosts the globally syndicated Just Jazz show.

In 2012 he was asked to record his first professional voice over. Since then he has invested in his studio and recorded VOs for radio and TV commercials, training videos, documentaries, and produced dozens of DJ and station idents using industry-leading imaging elements.
