Alan Jones's Biography

In 2002, Alan Jones joined 2GB as Breakfast announcer and in October 2008 renewed his commitment to the station until 2013.
In 2004, Alan received a Queen's Birthday Honour - an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) partly for his service to the media and sports' administration, but also helping many charities, including Youth off the Streets, the Children's Hospital, Starlight Foundation, the Sir Edward Dunlop Medical Research Foundation and the Heart Research Institute.
In 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1995, 1996 and 1997 Alan Jones was awarded by the radio industry, the prestigious award of Australian Radio Talk Personality of the Year.
In early 1993, Alan Jones received an Advance Australia Award for his services to the community.
Alan Jones is a graduate of Queensland and Oxford Universities, with majors in English and French language and literature, politics and education.
For three years, Alan was speech writer and senior adviser to the then Prime Minister, the Right Honourable Malcolm Fraser.
Alan was elected Australian Rugby Union Coach in 1984 and coached Australia, until early 1988, victories in 102 matches. He is the most successful Australian rugby coach in Australian history. His teams won 23 Tests out of 30, and four of those losses were by only a point.
In 1984, he coached Australia's national team, the Wallabies, to their now-famous Grand Slam with victories over England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland and a Barbarian side made up of the best players of those countries, plus France.
In 1986, Alan coached the Wallabies to Australia's now famous Bledisloe Cup victory in New Zealand, the first time such a victory had been achieved in 39 years. The Wallabies are only the second team in rugby history to win a series against New Zealand on their home ground.
On Australia Day in 1988, Alan Jones was appointed a Member of the General Division of the Order of Australia for services to Rugby Union Football.
