When John Logie Baird gave the world the first public demonstration of a working television system, little did he anticipate that the television would become the sensation that it is today! Surpassing radio and cinema, television today have become the prime source of entertainment for people around the globe. Audience cannot help but stay glued to the idiot box for a couple of hours a day, relaxing from their busy schedule and feeding their need for drama, comedy and entertainment. Television has also become a great job provider – from actors to backstage crew members, technicians to script writers, people with different talents can make their way into the world of television. One such group of people are the television presenters. Popularly known as host, television presenters act as the link between the show and the audience. They present shows, live or recorded, to seen and unseen audience. They are truly the face of television, who look bright, seem confident and have a wide knowledge about everything under the sun. Australian television has been blessed with a pool of extremely talented television presenters who have been at the top of their level. Right from Karl Stefanovic’s brilliance on the breakfast show ‘Today’ to Samatha Armytage’s program ‘Sunrise’, Melissa Doyle’s ‘Seven News Sydney’ to David Campbell’s ‘Carols by Candlelight’, there are many Australian television presenters who have earned a worldwide fame.
