Yumi Stynes's Biography

Best known for her co-hosting role on Network Ten’s “The Circle”, now breakfast radio disc jockey Yumi Stynes has had quite a ride.


Yumi’s career launched in 2000 when she won the Channel [V] music reporter search (alonside James Mathison). Literally overnight, Yumi went from making ham and cheese sandwiches in a Melbourne take away shop, to being snogged by Robbie Williams on live national television.

Noted for her meticulous research and great sense of humour, Yumi has interviewed actors, comedians, directors and musicians all over the world. She has written for various publications including Grazia, Frankie Magazine and Film Ink and has an active and engaged online presence where she enjoys entertaining people with her wry observations on food, family, art and love.

Yumi’s on-air style combines a unique take on the world – where her life experiences of single motherhood, growing up half-Japanese, being in a rock band and hitch hiking solo across the country makes her sympathetic to outsiders, rebels and artists – and a natural joyfulness that she wants to share. She has proven herself to be a versatile, intelligent and witty presenter who is respected by viewers, co-hosts and guests alike.

2010 saw Yumi join Network Ten as one of four co-hosts on the morning program “The Circle”. At the time she said “after years of doing live tv on Channel [V], I’m psyched to be back feeling that live energy again, five days a week! It’s something you can’t fake and a kind of magic excitement fairy dust gets sprinkled over whatever you’re doing.” The show was nominated and won a Logie for “Best Light Entertainment” in 2011. That same year, Yumi and Chrissie Swan launched “The 3pm Pick Up”, a weekday radio show on Mix FM (101.1) to considerable acclaim, and she was nominated for “Best Newcomer” at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards in 2012.

When “The Circle” was axed midway through it’s third year, Yumi used the opportunity to catch up on sleep, take her daughters to school every day and to marry her partner in a ceremony where the only media present was her Japanese mother’s iPhone.

In January 2013, Yumi returned to her beloved Sydney to co-host Sydney’s first all-female FM breakfast show on Mix106.5 with Sami Lukis. In addition, Yumi is a regular contributor to Sunday Life Magazine, Sunday Telegraph.
