Chrissie Swan is one of Australia’s most loved personalities and probably one of the busiest working mums in the business! Her most recent radio show ran Monday to Friday setting her alarm for 4am for her breakfast radio show with Jane Hall on Melbourne’s Mix 101.1 and also The 3pm Pick-up, which was syndicated nation-wide across the MIX network. 2016 will see Chrissie joined by AFL star Jonathan Brown and comedian Sam Pang hosting Melbourne breakfast on station Nova100.
Chrissie has been on our screens in the reality TV shows Spelling Bee and I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and is now a regular co-host on The Project.
Many fans have followed Chrissie from her days as a runner-up on Network Ten’s Big Brother in 2003 and her stints on breakfast radio in Maroochydore and Melbourne alongside Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson and Dave O’ Neill on Vega 91.5FM.
This lead to Chrissie joining Network Ten’s new morning chat show, The Circle, alongside Yumi Stynes, Gorgi Coghlan and Denise Drysdale in 2010. The Circle was honoured with three Logie nominations in 2011 and Chrissie won Most Popular Female Presenter and she was also nominated for the highly prestigious Gold Logie.
In 2012 Chrissie hosted Can of Worms on Network Ten and again in 2013 when the show went live. For her work on Can of Worms she was nominated for another Logie in 2013 for Most Popular Female Presenter.
Chrissie has also entered into fashion design and has her own range of trendy and affordable plus-size women’s clothing available exclusively at BIG W.
A gifted writer who happily over-shares the amusing and sometimes challenging realities of day-to-day life for many working mums in Australia, Chrissie has been a regular columnist for Fairfax’s Sunday Life magazine and has written for News Limited’s Weekend magazine and Fairfax’s Good Weekend magazine.
Chrissie published her first book, Is It Just Me?: Confessions of an Over-Sharer, in October 2013 and is available in all good bookstores and online.
Chrissie is also an ambassador for CARE Australia who help women in poverty throughout the world.
In her personal life, Chrissie and her partner, Chris (affectionately known as The Chippie) are the proud parents to three young children, Leo, Kit and Peggy.
