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.
