Kimberley Busteed

Kimberley Busteed’s media career was launched at the tender age of 18 – after taking out the title of Miss Universe Australia in 2007. It wasn’t long until the country born and bred beauty swapped her tiara for treble hooks and sinkers – by accepting a television presenting role on Channel 7 lifestyle boating and outdoor program Creek to Coast. Two adrenalin-fuelled years later, TV bosses extended her onscreen presence to sister show Queensland Weekender and Kimberley spent the next 5 years travelling and exploring the Sunshine State as one of Queensland’s favourite television presenters and segment producers.

Upon her return to Australia, Kimberley accepted a role to host Channel 9 television show Maroon Zone, became the first ever female compere of the Royal Queensland Show (EKKA), hosted the on shore entertainment at the exclusive Hamilton Island Race Week, and welcomed her first child – a beautiful baby girl in October 2016. Kimberley also began a new career in radio – becoming 1/3 of Nova 106.9’s favourite Saturday morning program Thank God it’s Thaiday with Nova regular Katie Mattin and Brisbane Bronco’s legend Sam Thaiday.
