Mario D'Orazio's Biography

Mario D’Orazio commenced his career as a qualified school teacher with B.A. and Dip.Ed teaching in country areas of Western Australia for two years.  He then made a career changing decision and moved into the newspaper/media industry where he spent almost ten years as a food and wine writer, political reporter, and also covered WAFL football for Daily News and Weekend News.

 

This was followed by a short stint in radio at ABC 720 as the presenter of the ABC’s flagship Morning current affairs program before he launched into what would become a colourful career in commercial television which included general presenting and production of various tourism programs.

 

As a TV producer Mario developed various medical and lifestyle programs including ‘Only Human’ which was years before its time and became the forerunner for many similar medical based programs currently featuring on TV today.

 

Mario’s career then took an unusual diversion when he took on the role of CEO of an internet company during which time he learned how hard it is to make the internet a paying proposition. Mario then returned to media and in particular current affairs television as the founding/Executive Producer of Today Tonight which he introduced to Perth 15 years ago. Since its inception Mario has guided the program to be a consistent ratings winner and one of the highest rating programs for Seven Perth.

 

During his time as Executive Producer of Today Tonight Mario was also a regular fill in presenter on Radio 6PR’s morning current affairs program on a regular basis over many years. In June 2011 Mario was appointed Managing Director of Channel Seven Perth and a member of the Telethon Trust board.  Mario has an excellent understanding of commercial television, politics and financial markets and is also a guest lecturer at several Perth universities.

 

Mario is also a much sought after speaker for corporate and government events.
