Star TV personality and champion of Indigenous people and culture.
It’s not often you meet a journalist who can cover a political campaign trail as comfortably as they can cover the showbiz beat. But that’s Brooke Boney’s core VP. In January 2019, Boney was announced as the Today Show’s new entertainment reporter in a network shake-up of its breakfast staple.
When it comes to her work, Brooke Boney masterfully balances her trademark relaxed outward glow with an inward fierceness that was borne from a childhood of disadvantage. Being thrown in the deep end – and thriving – has been a hallmark of her extraordinary career to date. Boney earned her big break on national youth radio station Triple J as the news presenter for Ben and Liam’s breakfast show. And it was also the platform where Nine Network management privately joined the throng of 18-24s to blind-audition Brooke Boney for one of the most highly-sought gigs in Australian television.
Boney’s passionate embrace of her Indigenous culture is uplifting. She’s igniting discussion around indigenous affairs and best of all, she’s doing it under the hopeful gaze of thousands of Indigenous youths across the country, who have someone to help them imagine themselves doing it too.
Brooke Boney has lent her skills as an MC, keynote speaker, and orator to some of the biggest brands and philanthropic causes in Australia.
