Officially called Bukola, but most people call me Buky, Buki, Bukie or Bookie!! It all depends on preference really. Bukola means "add more to my wealth". A Nigerian-born Australian, a wife, and mother of two boys and one girl. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Language, a diploma and more certificate courses in broadcasting, computer studies and journalism, among others. Haven taken on various broadcast and management roles in commercial, National and Indigenous media in Nigeria and Western Australia, I started work as a TV journalist and have been focusing on radio for the past six years. I have lived most of these years in the beautiful Kimberley region and I am loving the experience and the people. What I love about my job is that it gives me an opportunity to meet people be creative and have fun while working. Did I tell you? I love singing!
Meet the amazing crew behind the scenes at Waringarri Radio!
I never forget the feeling when the first time came to Kununurra. That was surprised and I wondered by myself: “Is this Australia?...it’s not the picture in my mind”
I lived in one of the busiest city in Vietnam before coming to Australia, so Kununurra has the big differences with the place where I stayed for over 20 years.
But I love this place day by day, the small town with the peaceful landscapes, quiet traffic & really friendly community.
I have over 8 years working experiences in marketing & advertising industry, especially in video production & graphics design. I hope all my experiences can bring the voice of Waringarri Radio to be closer to our community.
Presenter - The Breaky Show
I was born and raised in Adelaide and moved to the Kimberley region around 1996. I ran the Kununurra Backpackers for about 12 before starting work as a presenter for the Breakfast Show here at Waringarri. I was in that role for about three years and returned to this position in October 2013.
I love everything about the Kimberley region - the country, freedom, wet season, people, the ancient history and the wildlife. During my spare time I love to play golf and I'm very much into my sport - especially cricket!
I enjoy listening to all genres of music - music is my life. I love everything from the 60's, 70's and 80's through to country and dance music. I believe that this is what makes Waringarri Radio such a great station to listen to - it has such a diverse playlist that appeals to all listeners. I love mixing it up here!
