TV presenter, Journalist and Magazine Columnist


Elise Elliott’s media career spans more than twenty-five years across the trifecta of television, radio and print. Elise’s experience has given her the journalistic edge to write, host and present across all media formats.

Current Work
A not-so-secret rev-head, Elise is one of Australia’s few women motoring journalists. Elise is co-host of the TV motoring show, Cool Cars with Dermott & Elise, currently airing on 7MATE. She was also a presenter on Network Ten’s motoring show WhichCar.

Elise was a motoring editor and contributor to ARE Media publications with monthly car columns in both Belle and House&Garden magazines.
Elise is a sought-after MC. She has hosted several automotive events, including the prestigious Australian Motoring Awards, the Porsche Taycan launch and the Ferrari Women’s Lunch. More recently at this year’s Grand Prix, she hosted the Ford Mach-E launch with Daniel Ricciardo, the Porsche Singer event and the Victorian Automotive Chamber of Commerce Supper.

Elise can be heard on the radio as a regular fill-in host on 3AW’s Afternoons and contributor to 3AW’s The Weekend Break.
Elise co-hosts the popular Nine Radio podcast The Elliott Exchange with her husband, 3AW Drive radio host Tom Elliott.

When not shackled to her computer you’ll find Elise behind the wheel of her beloved ‘68 Mustang… or out on the waves with her Mini Mal, indulging in her latest passion, surfing.

Previous Experience
Elise’s passion for journalism began in 1989 when she was elected editor of the Melbourne University newspaper Farrago. After finishing her Arts degree, Elise completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Journalism at RMIT.

In 1993 she was spirited off to Tasmania where she secured her first job in television working as a reporter and newsreader for TasTV, Hobart.

Elise's next move took her deep into the world of politics, moving to Canberra as a political correspondent in the Press Gallery for the Seven Network.

In 1998, Elise moved to Sydney and the realm of current affairs to work on Seven's Today Tonight. Here, Elise also hosted various programs including the late news and Sunrise. She also read the news for Sky News.

In 2003 Elise was recruited by the Nine Network to work for A Current Affair based in Melbourne where she stayed for twelve years. During this time she also presented Nine's evening news service Nightline.
