Reuben Mourad

Reuben Mourad is one of Australia’s most versatile young television personalities, currently seen on Australia's Network TEN nationally around the country.

Reuben’s natural charisma and gravitas have taken him to all corners of Australian broadcast media – from entertainment, news, sport and weather to live radio and events. Reuben’s media career was sparked by a love of music which led to a job behind the microphone with the Australian Radio Network in the Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide markets. He then completed his post graduate studies with the Australian Film, Television and Radio School and moved into the world of television.

A former national anchor and weather presenter on Foxtel and Austar, Reuben has covered a diverse range of stories. Whether the tragedy of the 2009 Victorian Bushfires, the Brisbane floods or the all-important weekend surf conditions, he's been across all things weather-related. He's featured as a guest and panelist on national TV shows around the country and has also hosted major live events for Foxtel, including the Foxtel Lap and the St Kilda Festival in Victoria.

But when he's not behind a news desk, Reuben has presented at some of the most exciting events on the world sporting stage – the Commonwealth Games, the FINA World Swimming Championships and the Socceroos’ World Cup Qualifier to name a few. He's currently the voice over and MC for the Hyundai A League's Sydney FC. His sporting knowledge has seen him commentate on everything from basketball, water polo, gymnastics and even wheelchair rugby.

Currently, Reuben presentes regularly on Network TEN, appearing weekday mornings on Breakfast, traveling around Australia and the world covering everything from the craziest world record attempts to the latest fashion trends, from interviewing Australia's greatest athletes to surfing in the South Pacific. On weekends, you can also catch Reuben presenting on Network TEN's National Weekend News at 5pm.

Reuben is also very proud to be an ambassador for the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children - an Australian charitable organisation that he's worked closely with now for many years.

Son of migrants to this country, Reuben is proud to be an Australia Day Ambassador, thankful for the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of Australians, whilst also congratulating those set to become part of this very lucky family.
