Loretta Ryan was a fresh-faced 17 year old when she started in radio in 1983. Landing a job in the schedules department, she also developed skills in production before being offered a cadetship in the newsroom.
With over 30 years’ experience in the media industry, Loretta Ryan has seen many changes and adapted accordingly.
Radio: After seven years with Radio Ten, Loretta moved to Triple M, where she presented news, worked as Acting News Director and also co-hosted the successful afternoon entertainment and sports program Blood, Sweat and Beers.
News Talk: Loretta was with Triple M for 16 years, before taking up the challenge of breakfast co-host at Radio 4BH. That was followed by a move to the exciting world of News-talk at Radio 4BC, where she co-hosted The Afternoon Shift and the The Breakfast Program.
TV: Loretta's passion for the media has seen her fulfill her dream of working in television. She was a journalist and presenter on Channel Nine’s former afternoon news and lifestyle program BRISBANE EXTRA. Her other television credits include hosting television entertainment program FMV TV, where she interviewed local and international celebrities. She also fronted a locally produced real estate and home improvement program.
Previously, Loretta featured as an extra on the television series Paradise Beach and appeared in television commercials. Due to her media profile, she regularly MCs for corporate and charity events. She is sought after for radio commercials and telephone on-hold messages.
The 'Women on Top' book launch was a great success in Loretta's capable hands: she was thoroughly versed on the purpose and running order of the event and brought her warm, articulate, frien ... keep readingdly and thoroughly professional hosting skills to the podium, keeping things moving and adding her personal touch when applicable. During the event we also raised money for Bravehearts, and Loretta's ability to enthuse the crowd to support that worthy charity enabled them to gather financial support and to spread the word about their cause. The evening was a great success, with much positive feedback over the following days; we attribute much of that to Loretta's professional and thorough approach to the role of MC at this fabulous book launch.
