Jon Faine (ABC Local)
After seven years as a lawyer, Jon entered radio broadcasting in 1989 to produce and present Radio National’s Law Report. He then presented 3LO’s Morning and Afternoon programs, worked on ABC TV’s Investigators, First Edition and Wise UP and has been presenting the Morning program on 774 ABC Melbourne since 1997.
Known for his provocative and probing debate, quick wit and willingness to ask the stickiest of questions, Jon Faine delivers thought-provoking radio. Each weekday morning from 8.30am, be it politics, finance, health, law, arts or sport, Jon investigates the issues and stories affecting Melbourne with energy and vigour – all without taking life too seriously.
Faine is known for vigorous debate and fostering conversation on politics, law, arts or sport. Enjoying high ratings peaking in September 2002, he was found to be Victoria’s top talk-show host (AC Nielsen survey). In 2003 he received the ABC Local Radio ‘Broadcaster of the Year’ award. He has also worked on scripts for a number of TV and feature films. In 2005 he undertook study in mechanical engineering technology at NMIT to be able to machine parts for his hobby of working on old cars in his spare time.
Together with his son Jack (aged 19) he used his long service leave in 2008 to drive overland from Melbourne to London
