Senior Focus

Senior Focus is the voice of Auckland's senior community. In recognition of the diversity of seniors, the hosts bring senior leaders and experts to the show to explore a wide range of topics. If you’re over 50, tune to Senior Focus for comprehensive information on the policies and events that impact on seniors’ wellbeing.


  • Presenter: Anne-Marie Coury

    Anne-Marie is a 60-something advocate for seniors’ wellbeing, with a background in public sector policy, health and education. She sees radio as a favourite medium for seniors and with on-demand options, a great place to find a wealth of information. For fun and friendship, Anne-Marie enjoys cycling, singing, theatre, and travel. Relaxing with a good book, and writing poetry are other pastimes.

  • Presenter: Richard Barter

    Richard has a special interest in transport, how it effects seniors and the promotion of safety for cyclists, especially around trucks. As a cyclist himself Richard rides trails in the mountains and uses a bicycle as his main choice of transport.  He’s a jazz fan and plays bass at his church, grows vegetables and enjoys looking after his grandson.
