Queen’s Birthday Honours: Amanda Keller
As the Queen’s Birthday weekend continues across most of the country, WSFM’s Amanda Keller is amongst close to 600 Australians who have been recognised for their contribution to the community in this year’s Queen’s Birthday honours.
Amanda can add OA to her name, being awarded the Order of Australia Medal for service to the broadcast media, and to the community.
WSFM Content Director Charlie Fox said, “I have worked with Amanda Keller for 11 years at WSFM, and every day she brings a unique combination of intelligence, wit and poise to everything she turns her hand to. Amanda is a warm, friendly human being without a hint of ego, which is very rare for a media personality of her calibre, and it has been a pleasure to watch her continue to build on her already successful career in radio and television and tirelessly support her community through charity work.”
Off-Air Amanda volunteers her time and energy to support a number of charities. She has been a patron of The Sydney Kids Committee (2004- 2014), which raises funds for the Sydney Children’s Hospital; an ambassador for DonateLife (2011-2012); is an ambassador of Save Our Sons, a charity which aims to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). Amanda is also a supporter of Kidney Health Australia and makes herself available to help many other causes close to her heart.
Annually, WSFM and Jonesy & Amanda as a team support the GOLD Telethon with Channel 9 to help sick and injured kids treated at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick.
