Andrew Daddo

Andrew is a renowned author, television presenter and corporate speaker.

Andrew’s television career began at Network Ten while studying at Monash University in Melbourne, where he completed an Arts degree majoring in politics and history.  In 1987, Andrew moved to the ABC, to host its national music program called The Factory. He spent two years there until he was offered the role of Host on MTV, in New York.

In 1992, after returning to Australia, Andrew appeared as Professor Plum in Cluedo, and then as a ghost in Paul Jennings’ series Around the Twist.  Moving to Channel Seven in 1995, he hosted Australia’s Funniest People, World’s Greatest Commercials and the TV Week Logie Awards. He was one of the original presenters on the infamous, The Lonely Planet, and was nominated for best presenter in America’s Cable TV Awards.

In 1999, Andrew co-hosted Kidspeak; the Australian adaptation of the US show ‘Kids Say the Darndest Things’.  From there Andrew took up the position as co-anchor on Channel Seven’s news style program 11AM which continued until mid-2000.

Andrew has two Olympic coverages under his belt: Olympic Sunrise with Jo Griggs in Sydney, and Yum Cha at the Beijing games.

In 2002 Andrew began presenting on one of the top Australian travel shows, The Great Outdoors. Through The Great Outdoors, Andrew visited over 20 countries (over 70 trips), which he absolutely loved as he occasionally got to fish and play golf!

In June 2009, he, like everyone, barely recalls presenting the ill-fated This Afternoon, for the Nine Network – it lasted just two weeks.  However, he continued to work with Nine, voicing The Apprentice and multiple series of RBT.

In more recent times, he was the host of the Save Your Life Tonight series that aired on ABC, and in early 2015 entered the South African jungle for I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! Over the past 12 months Andrew has been a regular guest on Network Ten’s Studio 10 and is currently on our screens as the host of the four-part lifestyle series The Lucky Country, airing on the Seven Network.

In 2008 and up to May 2009, Andrew was the Presenter of the popular radio show Evenings on ABC 702 Sydney.

Apart from his career in television and radio, Andrew has written for a number of publications including Australian Golf Digest, Sun Herald, Fairfax and the Mamamia website to name a few.

Andrew has also written over 20 best-selling children’s books. Having received glowing reviews and acclaim from the media, booksellers, the Children’s Book Council and the Teacher Librarian Association; Andrew is a rather impressive, and extremely popular, author.

In 2010 he launched a four-part series about Skoz the Sleepwalking Dog and teamed up with Bruce Watley on a beautiful picture book called Monster.

Andrew lives on Sydney’s Northern Beaches with his wife Jacqui and their three children:  Felix, Bibi and Jasper.
