Journalist, TV presenter and MC
Victoria Carthew is a highly respected journalist, TV presenter and corporate emcee with over 20 years of media experience. A popular presenter with Seven Network’s travel and lifestyle program, ‘Queensland Weekender‘, Victoria is also a regular guest on both Radio 4BC and ABC 612.
With the Seven Network for more than two decades, specialised as sports journalist and presenter across a variety of sports (from Olympics and Commonwealth Games to Rugby League or AFL – she was Australian TV’s first female boundary rider) and has also regularly been a voice on talkback radio, working for several years at Radio 4BC, and most recently heard on 612 ABC Brisbane.
Currently a presenter with the Seven Network’s popular travel and lifestyle program, ‘Queensland Weekender‘, she travels the state showcasing the best in tourism, food and wine, with a particular passion for Eco-tourism and the Outback. She also is the co-host of the QBD Book Club Reviews.
As an emcee Victoria is incredibly versatile, and is part of the stable at the Brisbane Broncos and Queensland Firebirds, as well as having a host of other regular sporting gigs. But she is equally at home facilitating or emceeing large scale charity and business events, government forums, gala balls, conferences, cooking demonstrations or outdoor festivals.
Victoria also has broad board experience having served as a director and committee chair on boards across the sport, education, NFP and business sector.
Working with Victoria over the past 8 years, there is no presenter/MC that I trust more in ‘steering the ship’ at Broncos events. Vic is effortless in delivery, in no small part attributed to the behind the scenes homework she puts in. She has an incredible knack for getting the best out of people she shares the stage with and her personability and warmth make audiences feel connected and at ease. Vic has hosted everything from intimate VIP dinners to gala dinners for 1500 and she is never short of fantastic.

I have had the pleasure of securing Victoria Carthew as MC for a number of engagements ranging from commercial and corporate to charity events. Victoria has the ability to engage the audience be that large or small! and that great gift to be able to ‘control’ the audience whilst letting them enjoy each other’s company, but making sure the speakers are heard and the messages get across. An example of that, Victoria has run a series for us of ‘panel interviews’ for ‘ Legends for Lifeline’ these have been a huge success and are now annual events. Working with Victoria is a pleasure as she is so helpful, organised and willing to make suggestions whilst regularly preparing prior to the event. I would recommend anybody looking for a Professional MC to speak with Victoria! happy to speak further.
