Jonesy and Amanda to host My Generation in 2011

MCM Media has announced a new era in its much-loved radio show My Generation.  As predicted earlier this week on radioinfo, Brendan Jonesy Jones and Amanda Keller will be the show?s new hosts for 2011.

The pair, who will continue to host the WSFM Breakfast show, are only the fourth hosts in the show’s 12-year history. They take the reins from Jono Coleman who successfully steered the program to two Australian Commercial Radio Awards for Best Syndicated Program and celebrated the 600th show earlier this year.


My Generation is a two-hour syndicated show that reaches more than 450,000 people each week across 92 radio stations including the Australian Radio Network?s (ARN) Classic Hits metropolitan stations.

“Jonesy and Amanda are a sensational on-air team and I’m looking forward to working with them on one of our most enduring programs,” says MCM Media CEO Simon Joyce.


My Generation is a retrospective journey through the music, people and events of the 70s, 80s and 90s, every week focusing on one particular year. From news to movies, politics to fashion, all the seminal events and memories are covered, along with the most important ingredient of all – the music. It is a content-rich format that continues to resonate with the target market, transporting listeners to a time that they can relate to, a time that created the songs they still love.


Amanda Keller is no stranger to discussing everything about her generation thanks to her TV gig on the popular Network Ten show, Talkin’ Bout Your Generation.

She began her media career on Simon Townsend?s Wonder World and since then has worked behind and in front of the camera and microphone across some of the country?s most successful programs.

Jonesy is a multi-award-winning radio presenter. He is also a TV personality appearing on Joker Poker on Channel 10, has a regular spot on Mornings with Kerri-Anne, and hosts Off the Record on the World Movies channel.

“It?s great to be back with MCM Media. My Gen has always been one of my favourite radio shows and to be doing it with ‘the manda’ right across the country is like playing for Australia back in the days when we were good at cricket,” says Jonesy.


The show has a new time slot of 4pm-6pm on Saturday in all five major capital cities while regional station on-air times are yet to be confirmed.
