Influential, vibrant and dynamic – media personalities are all of those and much more. After all, who else do you think could strike a national conversation or influence a general opinion that the nation would follow? Call them entertainer or informers, media personalities take up a dominant place in our virtual world and take up the responsibility of making us aware of our real world. They are omnipresent and have made their worth count everywhere, right from television to newspapers, radio to internet, magazines to periodicals and so on. What’s more, media personalities are not limited to just television presenters. They could be journalists, actors, radio jockeys and video presenters. Just like every other country in the world, Australia too has a long list of media personalities who have garnered quite a name or their work and exerted influence over the lives of Australians. They are equally distributed between commercial, national and non-profit public broadcasters. Australian media personalities are known for their witty sense, acute knowledge and strong acumen for news. With this write-up, find out in details about the life and works of Australian media personalities.
