John Pierce began his radio career in 1967 as a panel operator at 2CH and then 2UW in Sydney working with people such as Max Rowley and John Laws. As an announcer John worked from 7BU in Tassie to 4CA in Cairns and a number of stations in between.

In 1976 he joined 4BK (now Hit105) John has also worked at 4BH, Lite & Easy 1008, 4BC and part of the original team at QFM (now River 94.9) at Ipswich as Music Director and Programme Manager. He's just spent the last 17 years at 4CRB Gold Coast giving him an invaluable insight into community radio.

John was also the DJ at Cloudland's Sixties Disco in the early 80s (the only way they could get rid of him was to tear the place down).
