Jo Stanley's Biography

Since being discovered performing stand-up in a dingy Collingwood pub over 15 years ago, the warm and vibrant Jo Stanley has risen to become a household name—and for good reason!

 

Born and raised in Melbourne, Jo Stanley rose to fame in 2003 as one half of The Matt & Jo Show, the hilarious and heartwarming breakfast radio duo on Fox FM. Together with funnyman Matt Tilley, Jo enjoyed 10 successful years of breakfast radio—at their peak, the duo was the most listened-to radio show in the country, with a whopping 6 years at number one. Famous for their banter and warm authenticity, The Matt & Jo Show brightened up weekday mornings with plenty of stories, jokes and celebrity interviews. Over their ten-year run, Matt & Jo interviewed a number of big name celebs, including Matt Damon, Hugh Jackman, Lady Gaga, Nicole Kidman and Beyoncé.

 

Eventually—perhaps feeling a little inspired by Queen Bey—Jo decided it was time to belt out some tunes herself. So, in 2007, she signed up for Channel Seven’s singing contest It Takes Two. Jo paired up with singer Anthony Callea, where the two battled it out against other Australian celebrities, and made it all the way to the show’s grand final. Jo and Anthony finished in an impressive second place, however Jo ultimately decided to stick to radio.

 

But in 2013, after a hugely successful decade on air, The Matt & Jo Show bid a fond farewell to their listeners, with their final breakfast show airing on November 29th, 2013. But of course, that wasn’t the end for Jo. Soon after The Matt & Jo Show, Jo returned to the microphone as co-host of Weekend Breakfast, broadcasting to 52 stations nationally, on Southern Cross Austereo’s Today Network. Two years later, in early 2016, she joined the breakfast team at GOLD 104.3, alongside Anthony ‘Lehmo’ Lehmann. Together, the pair hosted new morning radio show Jo & Lehmo for Breakfast. You can tune into Melbourne's number 1 FM breakfast radio show on weekdays from 6-9am on GOLD 104.3.

 

Aside from her vibrant career in radio, Jo has also appeared on several TV shows across various networks—including the ABC, Comedy Channel, Network Ten, Network Seven and the Nine Network. Over the years, Jo has graced our screens on shows like Channel Ten’s The Project, The Circle, Good News Week, The Panel and Australia’s Brainiest Quiz Show, as well as Channel 7’s SlideShow, Good as Gold, Thank God You’re Here, Sunday Brunch and Channel Nine’s Clever. Since December 2013, Jo can also be seen making regular appearances on Network Ten’s breakfast show, Studio 10.

 

In addition to her time in front of the cameras, Jo has also spent some time behind them. After working on a number of short films over the years, Jo eventually decided to establish her own production company, Headspace Enterprises. Headed up by director and producer Darren McFarlane—who coincidentally happens to be married to Jo— Headspace Entertainment has a number of projects under its belt, including Shotgun Wedding, a finalist in Tropfest in 2014.

 

Jo is also working on a sitcom, while producing her own online web series, On Location, and podcast, The Unknown Podcast, both of which can be found online at jostanley.com.

 

On top of this, Jo is also a sought-after keynote speaker, corporate coach and MC. Bringing with her a great sense of humour and an honest, open approach, Jo frequently speaks on topics such as personal brand, presentation skills, resilience and mindfulness. Plus, with years of industry experience and a wealth of knowledge, Jo also conducts interactive workshops for companies such as NAB, Westpac, Medibank, Kikki K, Southern Cross Austereo, and Melbourne University Business School. Similarly, she has also MC’d for many organisations including the AFL, Ella Bache, Fernwood Fitness, GAP and New Idea Magazine.

 

At present, Jo can be found writing her hilarious and heartwarming columns for Sunday Life Magazine and News.com.au. Jo’s warm and infectious personality shines through in her opinion articles on fashion, beauty, culture and parenthood, as well as the occasional celebrity interview. In fact, on top of her frequent newspaper columns, Jo has also recently written and published several books. Jo’s fiction series ‘Play Like A Girl’ is a celebration of Aussie girls kicking goals in the sport they love, written with Jo’s signature warmth, humour and authenticity.

 

At the same time, Jo is also currently an ambassador for the Ronald McDonald House, Smiling Mind, The Smith Family and The Big Issue, a patron for The Lighthouse Foundation and a supporter of the Salvation Army and the Sacred Heart Mission.

 

Jo’s talent, humour and warm personality make her a popular and much-loved Aussie star. And with her diverse skills and wealth of experience, we’re sure we’re only going to be seeing more of her.
