KATE LANGBROEK

Kate Langbroek is one of Australia’s most influential media personalities. Her career has spanned top-rating radio shows, popular prime-time TV shows and acting as well as a host of writing credits.

Celebrated for her original style, wit and free spirit, she never treads the expected path and somehow manages to juggle a frenetic work career, busy social life and motherhood.

Naturally funny, fearless and not afraid to tell it like it is. She is constantly the source of fun and is a joyous, free spirit who sees the world from a unique perspective.

Kate helped change the Australian breakfast radio landscape with her unique and very personal conversational style for 12 years at Nova 100 Melbourne with Dave Hughes finishing up an amazing run at the end of 2013. After a ‘year off’ ( if that’s possible with 4 children ) Kate is back on our airwaves in 2015 with Hughesy in the National Drive slot on Australia’s number one network KIIS.

Kate Langbroek has proven to be one of the smartest, funniest women in media.

Well known for her 7 years on Channel Ten’s prime-time hit The Panel, more recent appearances include Have You Been Paying Attention?, The Today show, Studio 10, ABC’s The Book Club and Agony Series as well as co-hosting The Project.

 

Kate also shares her witty and insightful look at the world with audiences through her weekly column in News Ltd’s Sunday Style magazine. 

MICK MOLLOY

Mick Molloy is an actor, writer and producer, Mick combines the scruffy appeal of a laid back larrikin and the acid tongue of the world’s toughest critic. This combination has proved successful both in terms of Mick’s significant box office appeal as a writer/performer and in relation to the accolades he has received within the industry.

 

As an actor Mick is best known for iconic film Crackerjack which still sees him able to get a free beer in any bowls club in Australia.  His roles span drama as well as comedy across his extensive film and TV repertoire. Mick is also known on Australian television for his success as a member of The D-Generation and writer and performer for the legendary The Late Show on ABC TV; in which he directed many of his own segments.

 

He has made special guest appearances in Kath and Kim, been a regular guest panellist on The Panel (for the life of the program) and he wrote, produced and presented his own television shows twice on the Nine network entitled The Mick Molloy Show and The Nation. 

 

As a sports fan and AFL tragic Mick has also co-hosted numerous sports panel shows including Before the Game, Between the Lines and is currently part of Channel Seven’s Saturday night AFL coverage. Before co-hosting Melbourne's number one FM breakfast show Triple M's The Hot Breakfast, his program ToughLove was broadcast to a national audience via the Austereo network.

 

Prior to this, Mick hosted the national phenomenon that was the radio program Martin/Molloy. It aired on 54 stations throughout Australia and is still one of the most successful programs ever to be broadcast in Australia, revolutionising the importance of the drive time slot in Australian radio.

DYLAN LEWIS

Dylan Lewis is one of Australia’s most enduring and recognisable entertainers, with a career spanning two decades and encompassing television, radio, film and music. Dylan is heard on alarm clocks all over Adelaide as the co-host of Nova 919 Adelaide breakfast show ‘Lewis and Lowe’. He has previously hosted radio shows on Fox FM, Triple J and Nova 100 in Melbourne.

Over the past few years Dylan’s hard work and talent has been rewarded by winning 3 ACRA Awards so far in his radio career, ‘Best Newcomer’ 2007, ‘Best Music Personality’ 2009 and most recently ‘Best Music Presenter’ 2012.

Infamously known as the presenter of ‘Recovery’ on ABC, Dylan has hosted an array of television music and variety shows, including 10.30 Slot, Pepsi Live and Network Ten’s national Saturday morning show, ‘Video Hits’ with Fuzzy Agolley from 2010 to 2011.

A regular star on television, Dylan has also been popular guest panellist on shows such as ‘Spicks & Specks’, ‘Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation’, as well as regular field reporter and guest co-host on ‘The Circle’ and appearances on Network Ten’s ‘The Project’ doing the ‘Whip Around’.

When Dylan first shot to cult fame on ABC TV’s national Saturday morning live music show ‘Recovery’ in 1996, he catapulted the popularity of live music and interviewing to a new level. He hosted ‘Recovery’ for four years and his infectious persona brought a new element into Saturday morning television. Dylan’s warmth and individuality aided in attaining artists that would appear exclusively on ‘Recovery’ whilst visiting Australia.

Dylan has hosted many launches, corporate functions and awards events. The rare experience of hosting an abundance of television shows, including hundreds of hours of live TV, combined with his professionalism and elite talent allows him to deliver at the highest level.

He has a daughter named Rose and a son named Jethro. He collects Star Wars action figures, masks, musical instruments, art and camels.

TRACY BARTRAM

Tracy began performing stand-up comedy in the mid-1980's and is best-known by many until very recently as the host of Melbourne's number one rating FM breakfast program, "Tracy and Matt in the Morning" on Fox FM. Since her departure from FOX, Tracy is now focused on what she loves doing most and that's performing! 

Tracy has proved to be one of the most powerful voices in Australian radio, however, as a multi-talented performer, the natural progression for Tracy was to write and produce her own shows. This has revealed her diversity as a performer - singer, actor, and comedian - simply an all-round performer who continues to keep her audiences entertained and exploding with laughter!

With her band in tow she performs an eclectic collection of original, cover & jazz songs as only Tracy can, mixing humour with some real vocal dynamics. 

Tracy is also a campaigner for animal rights and children's rights - she is an ambassador for Australian's Against Child Abuse. She is also active in women's communities and conducts seminars for stressed out women from all walks of life.
