Celebrity available for hire, based in Victoria
Born and raised on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, Brodie Harper began her television career as a presenter on Victoria’s top rating travel and lifestyle program Postcards. You will also see Brodie commentating on top rating show 20 to 1. She is also currently enjoying her much coveted weather role on Channel Nine’s nightly news.
Since joining Channel Nine’s home-grown series in 2007, she has travelled to every corner of Victoria from Walhalla to the Great Ocean Road and beyond. Always keen for a challenge, Brodie sites an adrenaline pumping tear around Phillip Island race track as a highlight.
Brodie recently enjoyed her role as the 2008 Face of Mooney Valley Spring Racing where she hosted the major lunches and events throughout the week. Finding the perfect Spring Racing frock is never a problem as she is a favourite amongst designers and was recently chosen by Ralph Lauren to model the designer’s gown at gala launch in Melbourne. Brodie is a media favourite when she steps out, appearing most recently on the cover of News Ltd’s Home Magazine, appearing in magazines such as Madison and Vogue, regularly in the daily papers and featured in various fashion spreads.
Brodie’s stunning looks quickly got her noticed by one of Melbourne’s most prestigious modelling agencies when she was discovered at a local shopping centre with a friend at age 19.
From there her career took off locally and internationally with one of her favourite modelling assignments being a commercial shot in New Zealand which enabled her to explore that country’s spectacular outdoors. When approached by the producers of Postcards to try out for the local travel show, she jumped at the opportunity to spend time seeing and sampling Victoria.
While lucky to see so much of Victoria when filming Postcards, she is also a keen overseas traveller, having recently returned from remote Thailand where she visited her World Vision sponsor child. The moving experience enabled her to meet her sponsored child and the child’s family, see where they live, are schooled, and how the community thrives and maintains development through international aid.
Like most Australians, Brodie’s family has also been touched by cancer and she is a passionate supporter of Breast Cancer Australia and the work the organisation carries out.
In 2008, Brodie’s charitable side was witnessed by the nation when she donned a silver spandex suit for Nine’s new hit program Hole in the Wall which resulted in a peak audience of 1.7 million viewers watching her contort her body and be slammed by the wall all in the name of charity.
Away from TV, Brodie spends time with her husband Heath Meldrum, friends and family and indulges herself at Victoria’s beaches and wineries.
On the home-front, Brodie and Heath are what you’d call serial renovators. Having painstakingly finished restoring their first home last year, they have moved onto a bigger and more detailed project with their second home. A dab hand at woodwork in high school, Brodie isn’t one to shy away from hard labour when it comes to renovating, but says design and decorating are her secret love.
