The Talent Coach: Craig Bruce

It took 1 hour and 4 minutes before the penny dropped for me.

I had just asked my last question to Hamish Blake on this week's new episode of Game Changers and was wrapping up the interview into a neat little bow when it finally dawned on me.

The reason that Hamish and Andy have been so successful on radio became clear to me in one simple exchange.

I was the content director at 2DayFM in 2005 when the show first started in breakfast and it was my first time working closely with the guys.
