Ella James's Biography

Ella James has notched up over 20 years in the Australian media, in radio, television and magazines. Backstage stories from behind the microphone and the camera offer fascinating insight to the world of the celebrity. Ella James peppers her delivery with fascinating quotes and thoughts from these interviews. In addition, as one of the most popular female voices in the strange world of 'voiceover', Ella delights audiences with her mimicry and live performance of her ads.


Ella left the radio newsrooms where she cut her teeth in the Australian media after realising that she didn’t need to take life so seriously. You can have fun and make sense surely? She set out on a journey to discover how to be happy and fulfilled in your work merely by changing your perspective. Her career since has seen her on channel nine in Time Out For Serious Fun with Katie Fischer, and as the money specialist and host on FCTV (Family Circle TV on the Ten Network). Ella James has broadcast to UN Peacekeepers for the Defence Department and done standup comedy for the International Comedy Festival at The Basement in Sydney

Always looking on the bright side of life saw Ella James being lured back to radio (2GB, ABC local radio across Australia then Sydney’s 2UE) to interview world experts on happiness and psychoneuroimmunology (the link between mind and body in health). On the way she has collected stories from her celebrity interviews with everyone from supermodels to politicians and beyond including Elle McPherson, Whoopi Goldberg, Dr Lee Berk, Dr Bob Cummins, Bob Hawke, Paul Keating, Magda Szubanski, Bert Newton, writer Elizabeth George (Inspector Linley) and Chrissie Amphlett.

We simply don’t talk about happiness enough! We do know that making others happy (our customers and families for example) reaps golden rewards! It’s the one crucial ingredient for life that we never plan for, aim for, and just hope we’re going to get. Everyone has a different happiness set point, but if you ask, people can’t give you a simple list of things that make them happy. It’s intangible.
