ABBEY RETURNS TO HER ROOTS
IS ABBY ColemanCol ( (pictured) set to return to her TV roots? Many fans of the popular Brisbane radio host may not know that Coleman got her break on the small screen.
Her career started when she was a child model on Wheel of Fortune.
“I forgive people for not knowing but I was the Wheel of Fortune kid when I was about seven years old,” she said.
“I also hosted Couch Potato back in the ’90s, then there was The Mole, and I was a weather girl on ABC for a little while.”
Now she is back on our screens presenting the morning weather on Channel 9 on the weekends, and last week she was a guest panellist on Channel 10’s Have You Been Paying Attention?
“I have always loved being on TV. Shamefully, I really enjoy the hair and make-up,” Coleman said.
“I am not sure if I would ever give up radio – I have a love for both.”
Coleman’s adorable son, Finny, may love listening to mum on the radio, but he doesn’t care for her TV gigs.
“Finny does listen to me on Hit – or, as he says, ‘Abby is on the radio’ – but when it comes to TV, he has other shows he would much rather watch,” she said.
