About James Preston


James wakes you up every weekday morning with his quirky humour, funny stories and a selection of the hottest hits from 6-9!

"G'day guys! I'm James, although I also answer to Pretzel - a nickname I've had since year's a long story, maybe I'll tell you on air some time! I love cooking and cooking shows (Roger Mooking is my spirit animal), dogs, sports and commentating them (die hard Wests Tigers fan which naturally means come Spring I'm disappointed every year) and my family! I enjoy scaring myself by watching The Haunting of Hill House and often find myself in bizarre situations such as being fully clothed in a pool whilst on the phone due to being attacked by wasps!
I also love music and enjoy writing and performing my own rap songs, I've even had the pleasure of opening for Ja Rule! I've got a bunch of stories to tell and I'm slightly insane, so hopefully we can have a lot of fun together every morning!"

Originally from Sydney, James joined Eagle FM in August deciding to finally pursue his true passion in the form of radio! Previously he worked in corporate communications and journalism whilst also doing radio on the side - he has appeared on almost every network in some capacity whether as a host or a frequent contributor. He has also appeared on TV hosting on the TVS and ARCANA networks.

In 2017 he became the youngest community radio station manager in NSW and has twice been nominated for NSW Young Achiever of the Year (2017 & 2018) and was also part of SCA's Talent Bootcamp.
