Radio is pretty much in Jane Holmes’ blood. Her parents met when they both worked at 3KZ, where her dad, Lennie, was a popular performer on the variety-based “Oxford Show” and her Mum, Ray, was publicist and copywriter. Little wonder that our “Miss Jane” has spent the past thirty years working in the media (she swears she started when she was 3!).
Jane has hosted a range of programs on Melbourne radio at stations including 3XY, FOX FM, TTFM, GOLD FM and 3MP.
She’s travelled the world as a reporter for Dr Harry Cooper’s “Talk to the Animals” on Channel 7 and is also a successful voice artist. In fact, it’s probably Jane who gives you your messages if you have a Telstra mobile phone!
Jane’s a busy girl at the moment: she’s a contributor to Neil Mitchell’s programme on our sister station 3AW and now combines that role with her passion for breakfast radio, here on Magic 1278.
Jane couldn’t be happier about co-hosting with her old friend, Kevin John. “Kev and I have been friends for a quarter of a century”, she says. “We hosted brekky together on TTFM in the early 90s and now we’re back doing what we both love most: waking up with Melbourne, playing great music and just having fun.”
Join Kevin John and Jane Holmes for Breakfast, weekdays 5.30am – 9am on Magic 1278.
