Macka Dixon

Sonshine 98five FM

Mackenzie is just starting out as a journalist/radio announcer, but has already found himself moving upwards through the ranks in the Perth media scene, using his infectious personality and ability to laugh at himself to charm the Perth community.

He helps the people of Perth ‘chill out’ on a Saturday afternoon on 98five Sonshine FM, where he uses the Nexgen radio automation software and Axia radio control panel to play a mix of the latest CHR & Christian hits plus some old school tunes.

He also let the people of Perth know what’s going on in the music world Thursday afternoons on Radio Fremantle 107.9fm hosting “The Hour of Power Radio Show,” which counted down the top 10 songs as decided by the public on the iTunes store.

He’s also kept the sporting focused up to date with everything sport, being the host of 91.3 SportFM’s program “The Drive” between March 2012 and February 2013.

Mackenzie has also previously worked for the Alcohol. Think Again Perth Heat, Western Australia’s high performance Baseball organisation, as the Media Relations Officer. Learning the other side of the media has allowed Mackenzie to gain a greater insight into the entire industry and expand his horizons, making him a more rounded journalist.

Mackenzie has also worked for the Fairfax Regional Media organisation, acting as a casual journalist, going from town to town, interacting with a vast amount of different cultures and immersing himself into the communities to write the best stories for papers like the Augusta-Margaret River Mail, Busselton-Dunsborough Mail and the Collie Mail too.

As you can already tell, Mackenzie is very much a keen sports enthusiast, supporting all of the WA based high performance sporting organisations, and also very interested in the music industry, having interviewed acts like Bob Evans,Birds of Tokyo and Ball Park Music.

Mackenzie is a delight to meet and listen to on the radio, he brings a natural vibrancy which transfers across any medium and he meets every task with enthusiasm and professionalism.
