About Myf Warhurst:
Myf Warhurst grew up in regional Victoria where, she recalls, she spent countless hours in pursuit of pop music and trash TV as a child.
At aged 17, Myf moved to Melbourne to study Music education at Melbourne University and later a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in fine art and art curatorial studies.
Myf has worked in and around the music/arts/entertainment industry almost since she arrived in Melbourne. She worked for some time as a journalist, providing arts and music stories for The Age and Inpress magazine, which meant going out every night to venues to watch bands or young hopefuls eager to see their names in print. Such was her success at InPress that in 1999, Myf was appointed Managing Editor.
Myf was introduced to radio as the showbiz reporter on Merrick and Rosso's Triple J Drive show in 1999. When Merrick and Rosso moved on to present the Breakfast show on NOVA radio in Sydney, Myf moved into a full time gig at the Js, hosting the Saturday night request show in 2000 before landing the afternoon shift in 2003.
At the same time, Myf was also a core member of the Melbourne Fly TV team (ABC TV's digital youth channel), producing and presenting five half hour music programs a week and conducting interviews with touring artists.
Myf has also hosted Triple J's weekday lunchtime shift and the breakfast show with Jay and the Doctor. In 2009 she hosted the breakfast show on 105.1 FM Triple M with Pete Hellier. Myf's biggest claim to fame came as team "captain" on the ABC's genial Wednesday night quiz show Spicks and Specks, the program of choice for about 1 million Australian viewers.
