Australia’s national Interest – Food security and the protection of the Australian regional way of life
Alan Jones is a graduate of Queensland and Oxford Universities and was speech writer and senior adviser to the then Prime Minister, Right Honourable Malcolm Fraser.
Alan was elected Australian Rugby Union Coach in 1984 and coached Australia, until early 1988, to 89 victories in 102 matches.
In 1984, he coached Australia’s national team, the Wallabies, to their now-famous Grand Slam with victories over England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland and a Barbarian side made up of the best players of those countries and France.
During this tour, one British newspaper described Alan Jones as “the most approachable and articulate Rugby person to visit Britain in the last 40 years”.
The London Times’ sports writer stated that Alan “has the most analytical brain I have encountered in charge of a national side”.
Alan is regarded by many as one of Australia’s most gifted public speakers.
In March 1985, Alan Jones was recruited to join Radio 2UE as their morning radio host and quickly established himself in the competitive world of Sydney radio.
Alan Jones has now joined the Macquarie Radio Network on Radio 2GB 873 in the 5.30am to 10am slot and returned Radio 2GB to the No.1radio station in the Sydney market and has, yet again, been recognised by his peers as the No.1 talk personality and current affairs personality in Australian radio.
In 2003, Alan Jones was awarded the inaugural Sir Roden Cutler Medal, commemorating the memory of the former distinguished soldier and New South Wales Governor, Sir Roden Cutler, for his services to charity.
In June 2005 Alan was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia (A.O.) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for service to the community as a supporter of and fundraiser for a wide range of not-for-profit organisations, to the media, and to sports administration.
Alan Jones is former Deputy Chairman of the Australian Sports Commission and Deputy Chairman of the New South Wales Institute of Sport.
Alan Jones appeared daily for 20 years until June 2007 making editorial comment on the Channel Nine Today Show.
