TRAV

Travis Winks joined Wave FM in August 2011 following a stint in the USA hosting ESPN's International Sportscenter, he’s called the Illawarra home ever since.

Trav has embraced the Illawarra, hosting various community, charity and sporting events including the Shellharbour City Council Carols by Candlelight and Disability Trust Gala.

Trav has a passion for sports journalism and has won a number of radio and television awards.  He was recently a finalist as Best News Presenter for the Australian Commercial Radio Awards.

Trav began his radio career with Triple M in Brisbane whilst he was completing his Journalism degree at the University of Queensland. He took up a role as Sports Director for the Australian Radio Network in Sydney in 2002 before making the move into television with ESPN and relocating to Connecticut at the end of 2006.

Travis is married to Amanda and they have four children.

Today he presents the Wave FM Breakfast news and occasionally covers a sports reporter for Nine News Illawarra.

STRANEY

Our big man, Straney - The Anchor, The Producer, The "Loaf of Bread" hard on the outside, but soft in the middle.

This big unit drives the Wave FM Bus daily and just LOVES taking the rinse out of Jade. Straney has worked up and down the East Coast of Australian radio for 20 years.

His family is from the Illawarra with Grandparents from here and his father was born in the Illawarra too. Now a father of Four! Life gets hectic and the shenanigans of The Straneys will be heard daily

He's also a celebrant and recently renewed the vows of 100 couples in Wave's I Do Take 2.

JADE

Jade is one of the few women in the universe who can't multi-task!

Maybe that's why she's in radio, all she has to do is talk, something she has mastered non-stop since she popped out of the womb, so how hard can it be???? VERY! She has to get the words in the right order, try not to say inappropriate things when the mike is on & refrain from hitting herself in the head with her headphones when she puts them on.....all of which she fails at miserably!!

But we love her; She's a home-grown Illawarra girl with a positive outlook on life ? Is involved with the community, and as she readily spills the beans on her crazy existence.... .... from parenting mishaps (seriously who forgets to pick up their daughter from school not once but three times!?) .... to renovation disasters (her house has flooded on 4 occasions) ....and unco moments (spraying herself in the eyes with perfume, need I say more). She makes us feel better about the order of our own lives.

Jade supports Kidzwish, Cancer Council & Raise The Gong.
