Recently I have received a few inquiries about the welfare of James Goodwin and Robbie McGregor, so I might as well address them.
James Goodwin is currently working for Macquarie National News (2GB & 2CH) as one of their Parliament House reporters, or to be accurate, their “Federal Parliament reporter”. James has his own profile page on the 2GB website and can occasionally be seen on television news bulletins holding a 2GB microphone at those members’ entrance media scrums. He can also be heard occasionally reading the weekend news for 2CC and 2CA. At this stage James doesn’t host one of 2GB’s prolific podcasts, although I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets one once the date of the federal election is announced, as he was hired by Macquaire mainly for the purpose of covering the federal election.
For the benefit of Ron who lives in Central Victoria and has seemingly been a fan of James since he worked for Southern Cross News (2UE, 3AW, 4BC, 6PR etc), James sounds much the same as he did back then. Unfortunately it’s not a quick process to find one of his reports on the 2GB webstream as I have no control over what they run in each bulletin, I’ll keep checking for audio periodically, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on that one.
Update 5:51pm February 6th, 2007: Despite James being 2GB’s Federal Parliament reporter, he has spent some time in Sydney as 2GB’s police reporter. This is something I was unaware of until today. End Update
Whilst I was monitoring the 2GB webstream yesterday I stumbled upon an ad voiced by someone else I keep getting asked about, ex-SBS voiceover man Robbie McGregor.
Robbie, these days, is providing voiceovers for just about anything. He can be hired through rmk Voice Productions (he has his own profile page there).
