Fiona Parker has been a regular voice on ABC Radio for years, having been a presenter for ABC Central Victoria in Bendigo since 2010 and before that hosting Breakfast on ABC Western Victoria for five years.
At the beginning of her career, she specialised in arts and entertainment journalism in commercial and community radio (including Fox FM and 3RRR FM), as well as working as a producer at 774 ABC Melbourne and at ABC Goulburn Murray in Wodonga.
Fiona grew up in Melbourne after moving there from Lae, Papua New Guinea, when she was in primary school.
At one point, she was positive she would become an actor, but her love of live radio and the unpredictability of an acting career changed her course and she completed a BA in Journalism at RMIT University, majoring in politics.
Fiona's program broadcasts out of the ABC's Bendigo studios, covering Bendigo, Kyneton, Woodend and the Macedon Ranges, Castlemaine, Echuca Moama, Rochester, Maryborough … and everywhere in between.
