Neil Mitchell signs for another 3 years

Staff Writer

Neil Mitchell has signed a new multi-year contract with Fairfax Radio Network’s News Talk station 3AW.

Neil Mitchell said: “People ask me why I continue working stupid hours and getting up in the middle of the night to come to work. 

It is because I have one of the most satisfying jobs in journalism in this country. It is a privilege to have access to a microphone and it is an honour to work with an audience like ours.”


He joined 3AW in 1987, first as a weekend host and then as a fill in for Derryn Hinch. The last 20 or so years has seen Mitchell locked in a hotly contested battle with 774 ABC’s Jon Faine.  Survey 7 saw him claim another win.

Fairfax Radio Network National Content Director Clark Forbes said: "3AW without Neil would be like Melbourne without the trams, the footy or four seasons in one day. So it's great to have him for another three years."

Radio Today’s Nikole Gunn recently caught up with Neil. It’s a fantastic insight into what makes Neil Mitchell tick and more.
