Ian McNamara

Born in Sydney, Macca graduated from Sydney University with an economics degree, but left the city to become a jackaroo. His career then took a major turn when he joined Col Joye and the Joye Boys as a singer/guitarist. Ian still manages to perform occasionally and is also a songwriter and producer. Ian first joined the ABC in 1974, in the Industrial Relations department but moved to the Rural Department two years later as a Rural Reporter. He then spent twelve months in television, working on A BIG COUNTRY, and COUNTRYWIDE, before returning to Rural Radio in 1980 as a reporter and eventually, presenter of AUSTRALIA ALL OVER.
