With a history in sports presenting and a career that started as host of Otago University’s now-infamous Cow TV, Andrew Mulligan certainly has experience dealing with the unexpected – a useful skill that no doubt comes in handy as a broadcaster.
Familiar already to Prime and Sky Sport viewers most weeknights on The Crowd Goes Wild, sports obsessed Andrew is an expert at presenting, producing and reporting, and has previously appeared as a presenter and reporter at three Olympics and three Commonwealth Games for Sky Sport.
Andrew has worked for nearly two decades in radio broadcasting and is currently on The Morning Rumble breakfast show on The Rock.
Since 2010, Andrew has been the live presenter/in-game match enhancement for All Blacks test matches played in New Zealand and is the Sky Sport Commentator for the Breakers Basketball coverage. He is also the voice of Rebel Sport.
Andrew is in high demand as an MC for the humour he brings to any situation – but he is also an incredibly professional host who keeps an event moving in a fun and lively manner. His live TV and radio experience stand him in good stead for keeping conferences and awards nights running to the minute. He has MC'ed a wide variety of events from the Hawkes Bay Sports awards to the Halbergs and the Steinlager Rugby awards and everything in between.
Andrew lives in Auckland with his wife Emma and young sons Cooper and Miller.
VOICE STYLE: Retail. Brand. Deep. Warm.
We booked Andrew to host a faux gameshow setup we were filming as part of AIG's sponsorship of New Zealand Rugby. As the Producer I knew that Andrew's role was crucial to pulling off the piece we were making and he delivered in spades. Everyone in the crew commented to me about how great he was. Things like; "consummate pro", "pleasure to work with", "fast and accurate", "fun to be around"... the level of praise got a bit nauseating to be honest. Would highly recommend booking Andrew for anything really, he'd really lift your weekend BBQ.
Andrew Mulligan was entertaining and well prepared, he had really done his research and has a fantastic knowledge about sport. Halberg Trust would recommend him to MC or interview for any sporting event. The great thing is that he can offer humour when needed but also a very professional performance. We hope to use him again in the future.
It was a fantastic night, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! I have had amazing feedback around Andrew and how he held the crowd and kept everything running smoothly. He was great fun & very easy to work with. He kept things relaxed and easy for me to throw last minute tasks at him. He made me feel comfortable with what was going on and I literally just left him to it, which allowed me to enjoy the evening as well. His professionalism around the crowd and people he was interacting with was fantastic. He had clearly done a lot of preparation as promised and as we had hoped when booking him.
