Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Brig is currently co-host of ‘The Brig and Lehmo’ breakfast show on GOLD 104.3, from 6am to 9am each weekday. Since moving to Gold 104.3 at the beginning of 2012, Brig and Lehmo have steadily gained market share in each radio survey. They are Melbourne’s Number 1 station in the core demographic of 40-54 year olds and number two FM station overall.
After completing a Degree in Applied Science majoring in Physical Education, Brigitte joined Network Ten’s News team in 1986 and became one of Australia’s first female sports journalists. She covered daily sports news and was lucky enough to include her passion for and expertise in tennis and golf to cover all the major tournaments in these fields.
Brigitte’s role was quickly expanded and she covered general news for ‘Ten’s Eyewitness News’ as well as weather presenting. In 1992 she was lured to radio and took on the additional role as the morning news reader on Triple M’s breakfast show. Radio gave her a platform to shine and show more of her personality. Her wit, charm, intelligence, warmth and generosity couldn’t be contained and it wasn’t long before she was made a key member of the breakfast team.
But television was never off the agenda. Brigitte returned to Network Ten to host an information, chat and entertainment show, ‘Monday to Friday’, broadcast nationally each weekday. She also presented movie reviews on the Network’s ‘Video Hits’ music program.
Her career continued to build in radio with a switch from early morning radio to drive time. She joined Triple M’s drive show, ‘The Grill Team’ in 1997 working alongside Dermott Brereton and Eddie McGuire.
From Drive, Brigitte moved back to breakfast and enjoyed a great run on Triple M's 'The Cage' with Pete, JB, Fitzy and Parko. The show ran nationally to great ratings success. In 2008 Brigitte joined the breakfast team on ARN’s Mix FM with “Two Women and a Metro” alongside Tom Gleeson and George McEnroe. After a year the breakfast shift morphed and Tom and Brigitte continued as the breakfast duo. Brig and Lehmo kicked off a dynamic on-air partnership in 2010 on Mix before moving to Gold 104.3 where they continue to enjoy breakfast ratings success.
