Jillian Whiting's Biography

A Queenslander through and through, Jillian was born in Mackay in the state’s north, before moving to Brisbane to attend high school.

 

Her childhood dream of becoming a writer and reporter was realised soon after graduating from the University of Queensland with a double degree in Journalism. In 1991 Jillian launched her TV career in Channel Seven’s Brisbane newsroom.

 

In 1996, Jillian made the move to Channel Nine, as a reporter and newsreader. She teamed with Bruce Paige in 2001 to present the state’s top rating 6pm news bulletin.

 

After starting a family, Jillian moved to take up hosting the long running Queensland public affairs show, “Extra” in 2006, as well as Nine’s Gold Coast news bulletin.

 

With 2 young daughters, Jillian made the biggest change in her career in 2009, returning to Channel Seven to take up the dream role as a presenter with the enormously successful travel show, “Queensland Weekender”.  She is now part of the team presenting on its high-rating sister show, “The Great South-East”.

 

The corporate suits, though, weren’t retired; and in 2010 and 2011 Jillian was called on to present Channel Seven’s Queensland bulletin and the national news on “Weekend Sunrise”. She is now part of the Queensland Sunrise team, reporting live from any breaking news location when required.

 

Jillian is a very poised and polished MC and facilitator, often requested to host  corporate events and conferences, fundraisers and networking functions including a long standing 9 year relationship with “Business Chicks”, a national networking group.

 

Her extensive experience and high profile has now led to a role as a director at Media Potential,   working with some of Australia’s leading brands and businesses in media and presentation training and communication workshops.

 

Surviving more than two decades in a notoriously unpredictable business is a source of pride for Jillian who continues to adapt to this dynamic industry.

 

There’s no question though when it comes to nominating a highlight, Jillian says her biggest success has been balancing a media career and young family. She’s married with 2 daughters, Harper and Josephine.
