With a building management course at TAFE completed, Michael Wipfli decided to test out the entertainment industry. Now you can hear Wippa every afternoon on Nova’s national drive show. On completing a radio short cause Michael put together a demo which he sent around Australia before gaining work in sunny Port Augusta.
With the opportunity of casual work at Fox FM he returned to Melbourne, and become a regular on the Hamish and Andy Saturday morning show and working as a project manager for a building company during the week. Running amuck on the Hamish and Andy show, one of the high lights included flying to L.A to interview Paris Hilton.
Putting a demo together Michael then auditioned for a position in the B105 breakfast slot in Brisbane and the same position at 92.9 in Perth, in which he secured. Michael co- hosted the breakfast show, “Em, Wippa & Ollie” for 2 years. In 2009 Wippa returned to his home town of Melbourne to take a seat beside Ryan and Monty on Nova’s national drive show.
