Rod Bloomfield

Rod Bloomfield is the Nick Xenophon Team candidate for the seat of Calare. He is a local with strong family connections in the electorate.

Rod was born and raised in Molong, in the very heart of Calare.

After attending school at Molong and Orange, he went to radio school in Sydney and soon after went on to work in Tamworth and Parkes - mainly as an announcer, with sidelines in news and sports and sales. Orange came next, with 2GZ becoming his long term home.

There were some excursions along the way, including a couple of years co-owning and operating a small business. Here Rod learnt valuable lessons about the challenges involved in the small business sector. There were also sales roles in real estate, furniture and the media sectors - but radio has always been his first love.

For the past decade, Rod has been at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Bathurst. He is the supervisor and editor of the student radio newsrooms, which includes the nationally broadcast “National Radio News” service. He also indulges his love of the industry by maintaining a part time on air role, hosting a daily radio music show on a local station.

Rod wants to give Calare’s residents the best possible representation – and he wants the stories and the voices of locals to be heard on the federal parliamentary stage.

He wants to fight for the electorate so its people finally get good roads and rail, a 21st century broadband, and the security that comes with jobs and a thriving small business sector.

That’s why Rod Bloomfield is representing the Nick Xenophon Team in Calare – to represent you.
