Daria Carrothers – Breakfast Show Producer & Online Content Manager

Written by on January 22, 2021

With a bright and inquisitive nature, Daria is from the small, slow-paced town of Whangaparaoa on the northern outskirts of Auckland. With a passion for live music, she fell in love with the transaction of energy between the artist and audience which unfolds during shows. Daria is drawn to the people, community, and cultural history of music, to track by track understand the art through a zoomed out lens. Naturally, this lead her to pursue music journalism and took up studying at Auckland University of Technology and is currently working towards a Bachelor of Communications. 

Growing up on house classics Daria is all about music that makes you move and groove, with a focus on acid house and techno. During lockdown as a means to fight boredom, she joined the troves of other bedroom DJs. This drove her to seek out Base’s mentoring program where she learned the practical side of the radio industry and was offered an internship. 

Catch Daria on Base Breakfast 8:30-10 AM, Wednesday and Friday with Ian Beatmaster Wright.
