Jono Pryor


After winning his first radio job by working for free, Jono Pryor began accumulating local radio awards as a DJ on station The Rock (these days he is on The Edge). The son of an Air Force navigator, Pryor began hosting on television when youth channel C4 launched in 2003. It was there he debuted the comedic Jono's New Show, which won the 2008 Qantas Award for Best Entertainment Programme. In 2012 Pryor partnered with Pulp Sport presenter Ben Boyce; after three years, Jono and Ben moved to a primetime slot. In 2017 Pryor won headlines for on air comments in support of those suffering from mental illness.

It's quite easy to be cruel and nasty to make entertainment but it's a lot harder to be, you know, light-hearted and sort of clever about a situation. Life's too short to be bloody mean-spirited. Jono Pryor, in a Sunday News interview, 13 June 2010
