Jeremy Coney

A former cricketer and New Zealand Cricket captain during this country’s most successful cricketing era, Jeremy’s continued passion for the game now has him in the commentary box as Radio New Zealand’s expert comments man.

In his own words, Jeremy graduated with a nebulous self-indulgent Bachelor of Arts in Maori, drama and education. He trained and subsequently taught for nine years before leaving as Head of Music to play cricket for his country!

His self-indulgence in the arts continues to this day, and he converted his BA into a MA (1st Class Hons.) in English literature.

Jeremy has had a number of television roles including team leader for the initial series of ‘A Question of Sport’ and front person for the travel programme ‘Holiday’.

Jeremy combines his excellent wit, creativity and love of poetry into his presentations.
