Bruce Mellett

Breakfast Host & Regional Manager for ABC Radio, Riverland

Bruce has spent more than 30 years in the media, cutting his journalistic teeth in newspapers with a short stint in TV and then onto Radio.

Like many new arrivals to the Riverland, he anticipated spending a year or two when he arrived as the Regional Journalist with the ABC but instead that quickly turned into more than 20 years and still counting.

Bruce was appointed Regional Manager of ABC Riverland in 1993 and currently hosts the weekday Breakfast Program, having overcome the urge to destroy the alarm clock with its early morning cacophony.

He is heavily involved in a range of local community activities across the Riverland and Mallee and is also chairman of the Riverland Youth Mentoring Alliance; an umbrella organisation promoting mentoring across a range of areas in the Riverland region
