Myf Warhurst grew up in regional Victoria before moving to the city to study Music and Fine Arts at the University of Melbourne. She worked for some time as a journalist, providing arts and music stories for The Age and Inpress magazine, before becoming Managing Editor of the Melbourne street paper in 1999.
Myf was first introduced to radio as the showbiz reporter on Merrick and Rosso's Triple J Drive show in 1999. When they moved on, Myf moved into a full time gig at the Js, hosting the Saturday night request show in 2000 before landing the afternoon shift in 2003.
On Triple J, Myf hosted the weekday lunchtime shift, where she got to do all the things she still loves best: playing CDs, talking about music, popular culture and current events and catching up with folks from various fields of the arts/entertainment industry. She then spent some time getting up super-early to do Triple J Breakfast with Jay and The Doctor.
Myf can be seen wrangling rock stars and other showbiz luminaries as a team captain on ABC TV's music/comedy quiz show, Spicks and Specks - check it out at 8.30pm on Wednesday nights. And lately, when she's not doing Spicks and Specks on tele, Myf's been hanging out with Adam and Alan on-stage in the runaway feelgood hit of the summer, the Spicks and Speck-tacular national tour.
But her next big adventure is joining her great mate Peter Helliar on the all-new Pete and Myf Triple M Melbourne Breakfast Show.

Firestarter Pty Ltd
- Myf was professional, well presented and held the audience really well. She gave reference to who she was and how she fit in with the theme of the event to help guests, including internationals who may not have know who she was, relate to her. She adjusted extremely well when we had an unexpected last minute change during the opening ceremony and was well received by the audience. We were completely happy with Myf and would definitely be interested in working with her again.
