Growing up on a sheep farm in Ashburton, and now firmly planted in the deep South, Luke is well acquainted with mainland living.
He’s also a passionate driver for community. Luke won’t just bend over backwards to keep you in the know. He’ll sing a tune, run at night in the mud, fly you to school in a helicopter, even get his ears pierced!
To keep up with local happenings, giveaways, quirky yarns, and everything else at the heart of our community – tune in to Luke Howden Breakfast, 6am-10am weekdays.
