Farewell to Faine: Lunch with the Unusually Retiring Broadcaster

For more than 23 years Jon Faine has ruled the ABC airwaves as host of the morning program on ABC Radio Melbourne. Tough, acerbic and forensic, he is loved by many loyal listeners and widely respected for his interviewing skills even among the less enamoured.

Now the veteran broadcaster is hanging up his headphones. But before he goes, he’s ready to share some of the highs and lows of his remarkable career – including the harrowing experiences of the Black Saturday bushfires and his starring role at an MPC event with John Cleese.

Join us for lunch and one last conversation hour with Jon Faine and fellow ABC broadcaster Mary Gearin – and the chance to have the last word in a lively Q&A session.
