Jo is a much-loved institution on Melbourne radio, having spent over a decade on the airways. Now, she’s joined Lehmo for breakfast to interview superstars, make celebrities out of listeners and cross the boundaries of sharing Too Much Information.
Jo is a comedian, writer, actor and presenter. She appears regularly on all networks of Australian television, where she always entertains with her honest and smart perspective. She writes for The Sunday Life Magazine and news.com.au, where she prides herself on her excellent grammar, even in SMS communication. As an actor, Jo dreams of playing Cruella Deville.
Jo loves Aussie Rules Footy, fashion, highlighting women’s issues, her husband Daz and her daughter Willow, sit-coms, parties and post-it notes. She has more plans than there is time in the day, which is why her house is never clean.
