More about Jane Doyle:
Jane’s media career began in 1980 when she left the secure and relatively well paid job of schoolteacher to take up a newspaper cadetship on trivial money in a Far North Queensland country town. Clearly things had to get better!
In 1981 Jane moved to Port Pirie and was immediately employed part time on The Recorder newspaper. She also managed to convince ABC Radio to give her casual work as an announcer. Her love of electronic media was born.
Soon after, she enjoyed a two and a half year stint as TV Week’s Adelaide Bureau Chief.
The radio bug had bitten however, and in 1986 Jane resigned from yet another secure position to take a six week contract with ABC Radio in Adelaide. That first contract led to a permanent position and a role as the chief morning newsreader for ABC Radio as well as many other journalistic and announcing roles.
In 1987, Jane was seduced by television, firstly as a relief news presenter and in 1988, she was appointed as the Monday to Friday reader for ABC TV in Adelaide.
Jane left the ABC in 1989 to join Seven News and continued in that role while undertaking a wide range of other broadcast duties for Seven Adelaide. From 2005 until 2012, she worked as part of Adelaide’s number one breakfast radio team on 1395 5AA.
Jane has won numerous Clear Speech Awards as the Best Television News Reader, and in 2009 she was named Australia’s Best AM Newsreader at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards in Sydney.
In August 2012, she was appointed Chair of Carclew and is currently Patron of Flinders Foundation and an Ambassador for Impact 100 SA. Jane has also been a patron of Surf Life Saving South Australia Inc and co-patron of the Adelaide Girls Choir. She is a member of the Management Committee of ASERNIP-S, the Australian Safety and Efficacy Register of New Interventional Procedures – Surgical, a division of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.
