Mike Munro began his career as a journalist in 1971 as a 17-year-old copy boy on The Australian and The Daily Mirror newspapers. After completing his cadetship he remained with the Mirror for seven years before joining Sydneys Channel 10 News in 1978. Eleven months later he returned to newspapers and was posted to New York by Rupert Murdoch to work in News Limiteds American bureau and The New York Post.
He went on to become a household name in Australian media as feature presenter in such programmes as Willesee, 60 Minutes, A Current Affair, This is Your Life and Missing Persons Unit.
Mike is perhaps is best known for his candid interviews with such stars as Madonna, Barbra Streisand, Bette Midler and Katharine Hepburn on '60 Minutes', for his ground-breaking and provocative reports for 'A Current Affair' and for the"honest raw emotion" of 'This Is Your Life.' This Is Your Life had not been out of the annual top 10 regular programs for all its six years and averaged a national weekly audience of more than two million viewers.
His autobiography, A Pasty-Faced Nothing, which documents his journey from a childhood of poverty, degradation and abuse to acclaim and popularity was released in 2003. Mike retells this story, entitled "The Power of Vision" to all manner of audience.
Mike is the consummate MC for that prestigious event, the inspirational speaker for your team or the celebrity presenter in your own 'This is Your Life'. Mike, in his warm and much loved style, is perfect to celebrate the achievement and qualities of that special individual.
