Adrienne Francis has worked as a radio, television and digital journalist and presenter for ABC Canberra since 2010. During her more than 17 year career with the ABC she has primarily worked in TV and Radio News. She has presented the ABC’s flagship TV and Radio News bulletins in the ACT and Northern Territory and she also worked as a television current affairs reporter for 7.30 ACT, which was one of Canberra’s most popular TV programs.
Adrienne began her career with ABC Local Radio where she worked across outback northern Australia. She worked as a specialist rural journalist based out of Katherine and Kununurra, before becoming presenter of the Northern Territory Country Hour in Darwin.
She has reported for national television current affairs programs, including Landline and Australia Wide. She has also worked as a reporter for ABC Radio’s national current affairs unit, for the programs ‘AM’, The World Today, ‘PM’, and ‘Saturday AM’.
Adrienne spent her early years between Sydney and Jindabyne in the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales. She originally studied agricultural science at the University of Sydney before pursuing a media career.
Lish Fejer presents ABC Radio Canberra’s Breakfast program.
She loves an early start. Growing up in the bush she studied science at ANU.
She’s worked in the field of science communication as a presenter, speaker, writer and exhibition developer including co-hosting ABC TV’s eco-home-reno show Carbon Cops.
Lish rides a bike, does science experiments at parties (she met her husband when she fired a scone out of a potato cannon), spends her down time in the garden and kitchen and loves Canberra.
