Mikey Havoc is leaving Auckland's alternative radio station 95bFM again after reprising his role as its breakfast host for a two year stint.

The veteran broadcaster, also known for his TV shows with Jeremy Wells and hair metal band Push Push, returned to the morning slot in May 2017. He'd previously finished up at the station in 2010 after initially joining it in the late '90s.

"My love for this job is deep, eternal and well documented. Returning to bFM and being asked to host the breakfast show for the last two years was unexpected, utterly flattering and has been a very, very good time," says Mikey.

"I can now say I've clocked up over 25 years with this plucky, grunty little workhorse of a station and for that I couldn't be more proud. Making great radio is what I love doing and an exciting, thrilling future beckons - see you there! And don't panic. I'll still see you at gigs."

In between his roles at 95bFM, Mikey hosted a show on NZME's rock station Radio Hauraki. He also occasionally appears as a guest host on The Project.

Caitlin McIlhagga, the general manager of 95bFM, says Mikey is a "huge part" of the station's story and "we wish him all the best for the future, and thank him profusely for all he has brought to bFM".

Mikey's last show at 95bFM will take place on May 3.
