Byron Cooke: ‘For One Show Only’

Byron Cooke from Fox FM’s Fifi, Fev and Byron breakfast show is trying his hand at the ‘talk’ format in the form of a one-off podcast.

On the aptly named For One Show Only, Cooke is joined by MTV’s Dr Drew Pinksy, viral sensation and new NZME radio host Bree Tomasel and American AFL star Mason Cox.

It also gets personal with Byron’s ex-wife Crissy Whalin and his 10-year-old son Zephyr, who both live in Los Angeles.

And it seems ‘talk’ has been an itch he’s wanted to scratch for a while.

“I grew up in Sydney and as a nerdy radio kid who dreamt of hosting a show one day, I’d listen to the likes of Laws, Jones and Zemanek,” Byron tells Radio Today.

“After 15 years or so anchoring big FM shows, I felt like spreading my wings and making a 30-minute sample of how I might do my own talk radio show someday.”
