Mel Greig


Mel Greig worked in the media industry in both radio and television for over 20 years. In 2012 Mel scored her dream job co-hosting the Hot 30 Countdown radio show, interviewing the world’s biggest stars. She appeared on television as a media personality for Channel 9’s Celebrity Apprentice, but also as a TV panellist offering expert opinion on Sunrise, Today Show and Studio 10. Recently she enjoyed a whole 30-secs of fame appearing on Dr Phil (Yes, THE DR Phil)! Although it was only 60 seconds, Mel intends to make T-Shirts to remember the occasion.  

In the past few years Mel has taken a step back from the spotlight and has transferred years of priceless experience into working as a PR and media manager. Not only can Mel create a PR campaign, but she can also front it as a spokesperson if required.  

Mel is passionate about a few causes close to her heart. Mel was a runaway teenager who went down a bad path at the age of 16, couch surfing and hanging out with the wrong crowds until a job in radio put her back on the right track. Mel advocates for vulnerable youth and recently became an accredited foster carer. 

Mel lost her mum to pancreatic cancer and advocates to help others know the warning signs and symptoms for one of our deadliest cancers. 

Mel is most proud of her work as an ambassador of over 10 years for Endometriosis Australia. Mel wasn’t diagnosed until she was 30 and is a stage 4 sufferer, it has caused many years of chronic pain and fertility problems for Mel, and she will remain childless aside from her fur baby Mia the Moodle. Mel will continue to use her voice to break down the stigma surrounding periods and endometriosis and hopes the next generation of women will have early diagnosis and with the right funding hopefully getting one step closer each year to finding a cure.
