Mike Lane wears many hats. He’s the Content Director for Radio Hauraki, the head of the Alternative Commentary Collective, and a die-hard fan of the Black Caps.

As head of the ACC, we talk about the worst things said on air, what it’s like managing Matt Heath, Jeremy Wells, Leigh Hart and Jason Hoyte, what really happened when the ICC booted Lane’s commentary team from the Cricket World Cup and the complicated relationship with NZ Cricket.

Off the pitch we discuss growing up in Hamilton and playing high school cricket with Dan Vettori, battling and beating cancer, men’s mental health and the future of sports broadcasting in New Zealand.
