Amanda Keller receives her Order of Australia Medal

WS FM’s Amanda Keller was honoured with an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) on the Queen’s Birthday and this week she formally received the medal at a ceremony in Government House.

The award recognises Amanda’s service to broadcast media and the community.
Amanda was joined by her husband Harley Oliver and two sons Liam and Jack (pictured) to receive the medal from the NSW Governor.
Amanda said she was honoured to be presented with the OAM.

“It hasn’t gone to her head,” joked husband Harley, ”but on her phone now the Uber choices are ‘Carriage…Stage Coach …and Pumpkin.”

 Off air Amanda volunteers her time and energy to support a number of charities. She has been a patron of The Sydney Kids Committee (2004- 2014), a volunteer organisation which raises funds for the Sydney Children’s Hospital; an ambassador for DonateLife (2011-2012); is an ambassador of Save Our Sons, a charity which aims to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) a form of muscular dystrophy characterised by aggressive muscle degeneration, which affects mainly young boys from the age of five. Amanda is also a supporter of Kidney Health Australia and makes herself available to help many other causes close to her heart.
Annually, WSFM and Jonesy & Amanda as a team support the GOLD Telethon with Channel 9 to help sick and injured kids treated at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick.
