Shelley Craft is one of Australia’s most-loved media personalities after leading a diverse range of programs on Australian television for over 20 years. A household name, Shelley is best known by families across the country for her presenting roles on The Block and Australia’s Funniest Home Videos on the Nine Network.
Shelley’s life on air began after she successfully auditioned for a spot on Channel 7’s morning variety program Saturday Disney back in 1996. It wasn’t long before production was brought to Sydney which allowed her the opportunity to work as a sports reporter for Channel 7 and cover a diverse range of international events from the World Cup Skiing, Olympic Games in Sydney to the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and Torino. She was also part of the commentary team for the Australian Open Tennis and 7’s Melbourne Cup coverage for multiple years.
Many other varied opportunities came Shelley’s way during her time at Channel 7 including co-hosting the Guinness World Records, presenting on popular travel program The Great Outdoors and hosting the iconic annual Carols in the Domain.
In 2008, it was time for something new and Shelley signed with the Nine Network hosting the iconic family favourite program, Australia’s Funniest Home Videos, for 7 years. During this time Shelley was asked to join Domestic Blitz, a home renovation program all about helping families that had endured hardship with a home makeover.
Since 2011, Shelley has been co-hosting Australia’s longest-running and most successful reality TV Show, The Block, offering the Block participants motivational support and advice in her role as mentor for 16 seasons now alongside Scott Cam as well as hosting the official The Block podcast.
Shelley’s experience and knowledge of the property market (which includes having real estate accreditation as a director of Byron Bay’s leading realty firm Pacifico Property with her husband), led Shelley to also co-host the Your Domain TV show in 2019.
Outside of The Block, Shelley hosts The Aging Project podcast which features candid, no-holds-barred interviews with the world’s leading and most inspiring minds in the field of aging well.
Shelley is also one of Australia’s most experienced and in-demand Master of Ceremonies and Event hosts.
