Mieke Buchan is a chatterbox. She’s the first to admit it, but luckily, she’s also a pretty good listener.
This talking-listening combo turned into a 20 year (and counting) media career that has taken her, quite literally, all over the world (and made her passport very colourful).
A television presenter for American, Australian, European and Asian networks, she has now added ‘AM talkback radio host’ to the list of gigs that are apparently considered ‘work’, chatting it up on the Talking Lifestyle stations (previously 2UE & co). ‘Mieks’ is also an outrageously honest columnist and confidence-boosting media trainer.
In the Sports TV arena, Mieke has reported from the sidelines of 5 Super Bowls, the grandstands of tennis tournaments, the pits of Nascar, the greens of celebrity golf events (Justin Timberlake can PLAY!) and the tarmacs of the Red Bull Air Race World Series. Her programs have been seen on FOX Sports, Tennis Channel and ESPN in America. In Australia she’s co-hosted panel chat program Clubhouse on Seven Mate with Bill Woods, anchored the weekend edition of SBS’ World Sports and worked with soccer legends Les Murray and Johnny Warren on the the Korea-Japan World Cup, the World Game and On the Ball.
Mieke’s mantra is – jump off the cliff and build your wings on the way down (in this case, metaphorically.)
