Abby Coleman can be heard on HIT 105’s Brisbane Breakfast show ‘Stav, Abby & Matt with Osher’ every weekday from 6am-9am. In addition to her role on radio Abby regularly appears nationally on Network Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention . She’s also well known for her appearances on the Nine Network’s Weekend Today show presenting the weather.
After graduation she represented South Australia in Miss Australia in Darwin – Declaring Beauty pageants are exactly how you imagine them to be. In the year 2000 she was runner up in the first reality show to come to Australia – Channel Seven’s The Mole.
After completing radio and TV interviews for the reality show she was asked by Austereo to be a black thunder pilot and the on air gossip girl. At the same time she was writing and presenting the ABC TV’s National Children’s show Couch Potato.
A few years later she successfully auditioned for drama school in Sydney and relocated. After graduating from a three year degree at The Actors Centre Australia she went on to perform lead roles in many plays such as The Importance of Being Earnest, A Streetcar Named Desire and Macbeth as well as starring in commercials for Australian Central Credit Union, Jacobs Creek, Cannon and Greater Union and way too many short films to mention.
In 2007 she temporarily returned to Adelaide to complete her marketing degree at University but instead fell in love with a carpenter and decided to stay (he promised to make her a built-in wardrobe). In January 2009 she started working as the afternoon announcer at SAFM Adelaide as well as presenting the gossip segments, The Sunday Night Show and filling in for Amber Petty in the breakfast role during the show’s holidays.
Shortly after getting married in December 2010 Abby went to Sydney to fill in for the national show The Hot 30 for two months and then in August 2011 moved to Brisbane to take up her current role with the HIT 105 breakfast show.
