Re: what's the meaning of "resident" here?

Re: "Ian Wright, the Pilot Guides Globe Trekker anchor man and RESIDENT lunatic ..."

"Resident" here means "attached to and working regularly for Pilot Guides Globe Trekker"

"Anchor man" = "anchorman" = a person who presents and coordinates a live television or radio programme involving other contributors.

"Ian Wright, the Pilot Guides Globe Trekker anchor man and RESIDENT lunatic ..." = " Ian Wright is the person who presents and coordinates live television programmes and is the lunatic who is attached to and working regularly for 'Pilot Guides Globe Trekker' "
