Farewell to Faine

Download the flyer

Veteran broadcaster Jon Faine is hanging up his headphones. But before he goes, he’s ready to share some of the highs and lows of his remarkable career – including the harrowing experiences of the Black Saturday bushfires and his starring role at an MPC event with John Cleese.

Join us for lunch and one last conversation hour with Jon Faine and fellow ABC broadcaster Mary Gearin – and the chance to have the last word in a lively Q&A session.
