James Coleman


James Coleman has done time as a DJ (from Channel Z to Radio Live), TV presenter and actor (including parodying himself on award-winning comedy series The Jaquie Brown Diaries). His presenting work includes TV3 breakfast show Sunrise, and souping up barbecues and letterboxes for popular science show Bigger, Better, Faster, Stronger. Coleman's extended radio CV includes three years doing drivetime at Channel Z — named New Aotearoa's Best Non-Breakfast Music Personality in 2001, he was twice nominated for the top local award for radio hosts. He has also done ScreenTalk interviews for NZ On Screen.

I loved Bigger, Better, Faster, Stronger. How we survived without being blinded, cut to ribbons or incinerated beggars belief. James Coleman on co-presenting 2011 TV series Bigger, Better, Faster, Stronger with Greg Page
