The third daughter of a bubble-wrap addicted mother and a father who enjoys customising Econovans just for fun, Chrissie Swan first entered Australia's conscious in 2003 as Australia's first female runner-up in Network Ten's 'Big Brother'.
Taking up an opportunity to become a breakfast radio announcer on the Sunshine Coast, Chrissie relocated herself and her coffee machine up to Maroochydore and set her recurring alarm for 4am. Her work as a breakfast radio announcer saw her be nominated for 'Best Newcomer On-Air' at The Australian Commercial Radio Awards' in 2004, and won 'Best On-Air Team' in 2005.
Suffering from severe sookiness - she missed her mum!- Chrissie returned to Melbourne where she spent two years trying to get a word in with Dicko and Dave O'Neill on Vega 91.5's 'Dicko, Dave and Chrissie' breakfast radio show.
In 2010, Chrissie was chosen to join Network Ten's cheerful new morning talk show 'The Circle'. Chrissie very quickly won over a new legion of admirers with her warm, kind and delightful manner. Alongside her three new 'besties', Chrissie has sung with Meatloaf, danced like Beyonce, impersonated a panda, and thought that a roast chicken ought to be named 'Maurice'!
Her work on 'The Circle' saw Chrissie be honoured with three Logie nominations in 2011, including the Golden Logie. Out of the three nominations, she won 'Most Popular New Female Talent'.
A self-confessed pop trivia tragic - she once won $500 for singing every verse of 'The Love Boat' from memory - Chrissie lists good coffee, eBay, her man 'The Chippie', and her two-year old son Leo as her life's passions. She is loving life in the 'burbs and spend her weekends at Bunnings - just like everyone else!
After what seems to be like a lifetime on our TV screens (All Together Now, Country Practice, Neighbours etc etc), Jane has arrived in radio land and is loving every minute.
When she’s not ferrying her nine year old daughter between engagements she can be found in front of her computer trawling the internet for content, designing homewares for her very own label Salvation Jane Home and fuelling her online shopping addiction.
She cooks, she cleans, she laughs and she runs… and in the studio she dances like no ones watching!
