Andrew Clark has had a remarkable career as a journalist, editor, producer and presenter.
His love of classical music began as a child in Scotland when he learned trumpet, trombone and euphonium and completed grade eight music practice. He moved into languages at University to train as an interpreter. He speaks French, German and Spanish, which has proven extremely useful for classical music presentation.
After graduating he moved to Europe, working as an English teacher and radio newsreader. He went on to present a children’s television show in Lithuania, and filed stories for CNN’s World Report, before joining the BBC. In his thirties he became the youngest ever news editor on BBC World.
He helped to launch Al-Jazeera English in Asia and then moved to Australia 14 years ago, to work with public broadcaster SBS, where he rose to the position of Executive Producer of News.
After 25 years in news, Andrew left SBS in 2020, keen to focus his media talents on another passion, classical music. He then began presenting Breakfast and Drive on Australia’s oldest FM radio station 2MBS Fine Music Sydney. He had already been hosting specialty shows on the station for more than a decade as well as a short stint presenting for sister station 4MBS in Brisbane.
Andrew brings his passion for media, classical music and the love of experiencing different countries and cultures to presenting RNZ Concert Mornings Monday - Thursday each week.
