When Guy Mansell was eight, he and his family traded life in the UK for Tauranga's alluring sunny shores. Guy, then an aspiring Spanish wrestler, was surprised at how many kids he saw running around barefoot. Before long he had cemented a reputation for being a barefoot, energetic and charismatic goofball.

These characteristics shone through to a careers adviser, who pointed him in the direction of broadcasting. Shortly after he was studying broadcasting in Tauranga, before moving to Christchurch to finish his studies. He now holds a degree in Broadcast Communications, with a major in Radio.

From there Guy moved to Auckland and took up an internship at ZM. The station recognised him as a rising talent, and snapped him up as the resident host on the ZM Night Show. He has a love of on-camera work, and spent a period hosting the ZM20 on Juice TV.

In 2017, super talented Guy shifted to The Edge, where he had secured the coveted role co-hosting The Edge 30, weeknights from 7pm. He also performed live on camera for The Edge TV, counting down the county's hottest 30 songs. Currently he co-hosts The Edge Workdays from 10am - 3pm weekdays.

During his free time, Guy works on the hugely successful YouTube channel with his partner Megan Annear, a fellow resident on air at The Edge. In a very short time, their candid banter, couple antics and honesty amassed a lot of really engaged followers who tune in weekly to catch-up on their latest content. Viewers laugh out loud as they watch Guy and Meg play games, do challenges, and attempt to dress-up their unimpressed cat, Plum.

Guy is perfectly suited for television and radio, loving the spontaneity and high energy created by the fun team that surrounds him. He takes his special brand of cheekiness and enthusiasm wherever he goes, including his MC work, which has featured stints at the Tauranga Jazz Festival, NZME events, and pub quizzes.

Off air, Guy has a passion for golf, avoids spiders like the plague, and sponsors a local gym under the guise of a membership fee.

On the 28th of June this year I had the task of helping put on the biggest winter concert in the central North Island. Ohakune Mardi Gras this is an event that is truly like no other and has every aspect of event management possible with a crowd of 8000. This year one of our MC’s was Guy Mansel from the ZM night show. The crowd is unique and hyped and unpredictable which requires the MC to be exceptional in a live environment and be able to act quickly for the demands of the event. I can say that the task was achieved with distinction from Guy and I would be happy to recommend him for your next event. He brings a positive and hardworking attitude to the role, this along with his ability to be dynamic in a live environment will make him an asset to your next event.

NZME. were the premiere sponsor of ad:tech New Zealand, a major advertising and media conference event in November 2014. As part of this we had a seminar showcasing young talent at our business. From the radio area of the group, Guy was recommended to us as host for the session, leading a panel of 3 of his peers at NZME.. We were delighted with that recommendation. Guy was a fantastic host and provided the ideal MC skills required for the session. The energy he bought to the room was outstanding, bringing the room to life in what had the potential to have be a hard afternoon session as people neared the end of their day. This was supported by his knowledge of the subject, and the ease at which he involved the other panellists with the conversation and sought out interaction with the crowd.

We were lucky enough to have Guy MC one of the biggest winter events if the year – OMG2016! It was fair to say that it was a demanding MC gig where he was required to entertain thousands of people for up to 15minutes at a time between acts. But with his quick thinking, planning and ideas to get the crowd involved he absolutely nailed it. Guy without a doubt engaged the crowd (which is hard to do at a rowdy, night time event) and won them over. I would 100% recommend Guy for your next gig or event.

Guy along with his ZM Nights Co-host was the MC for the Auckland Job fest of which NZME was the official media partner. Guy was professional, engaging, enthusiastic and a great role model for the youth that were attending the job fest and was a credit to have as the NZME Careers brand. It was a pleasure to work with Guy as nothing was ever difficult and he took the day in his stride. I would have no hesitation in recommending Guy as your MC
Matt Jackson - Culture and Performance Lead - NZME
I've worked with Guy for over a year now and he's an awesome voice talent. He always gets the type of read required and takes direction really well. I have also found his voice very easy to mix, with no sibilance or impediments Guy has great energy and passion for voicing and always tries to get the perfect take.
