Staff Q & A

Aaron Brown

  •  I wear many hats at Rhema! Most people would know me as an announcer (hosting Drive weekdays, The Artist Spotlight and ScreenTalk), but behind the scenes I’m also the Music Director overseeing our music and our playlists as well as Head of Production, overseeing our production department.
  • What is your favourite thing about working at Rhema? Definitely the moments connecting with our listeners. Sometimes sitting in a studio on our own can feel like talking to ourselves but the moments when we get feedback that someone is listening or you let us know how Rhema has made a difference in your day it makes all the hard work worth it. I also love the family culture within our team, it’s supportive and caring.
  • Who is your favourite person from the bible? (excluding Jesus) I think I’ve always identified strongly with David. He was a man after God’s own heart and yet he was also a flawed individual. He loved God passionately but that didn’t always stop him from making some pretty big blinders, but God’s redemption and forgiveness was a big part of his life. Also he was a pretty awesome songwriter 😛
  • What is your favourite movie/ TV show? Oooooh this is way too hard to just list one! For TV I love a smart comedy like Arrested Development or Scrubs, The Block is always a must watch for me. When it comes to movies, some all time faves include Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters and most Batman films. I’m a huge James Bond fan, I also love Marvel movies and Star Wars. I love Christopher Nolan films, particularly The Prestige.
  • When restrictions lift, where would you love to travel? I’d love to visit my brother in England or a relaxing holiday in Hawaii (although it wasn’t COVID stopping that… mostly finances :P). Realistically, when all this is over, the first place I will travel to will be to every one of my friends house for a huge hug to make up for all the ones I haven’t been able to give for a while now
