Medal of the Order of Australia for service to the broadcast media industry
After more than six decades in the media industry, Philip Brady OAM is one of the country’s most experienced and familiar radio broadcasters. From Kennedy to Vizard, Newton to Hogan, Philip has collaborated with Australia’s most iconic personalities.
The dawn of Philip’s career came alongside that of Australian television transmission in the late 1950s. Like many enduring members of Australia’s media, he got his start providing voiceovers on Channel 9 and making appearances on Graham Kennedy’s In Melbourne Tonight. Philip’s most substantial work came from his nearly 30-year position as host of 3AW’s Nightline program. Today he continues to broadcast on 3AW with his weekly program Remember When every Sunday night.
Beyond broadcasting, Philip is an active community contributor. He is a long-time supporter of The Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria.

He is also one of the Australia Day Ambassador Program’s longest-serving members.
