Neil Mitchell

Monday - Friday / 8:30am - Midday

He is a member of the Melbourne Press Club’s Hall of Fame and one of the country’s leading journalists, having worked as a reporter and executive at The Age, an editor of The Herald, and at all three commercial television networks.

His sharp ear for the mood of his audience and his history of fighting for the battler have won him the highest journalistic awards and an AO.

But every weekday morning it’s a team effort.

The 3AW Mornings audience are Neil’s roving reporters, regularly calling in with breaking news and important tip-offs.

Sometimes they call to help interview the Prime Minister.
Sometimes they call for a laugh or a cry.
Sometimes they just want to let Neil know he’s wrong.

But it’s always about what Melbourne’s talking about.

Each week, Neil’s Most Valuable Player is awarded to the best caller or contributor to the program.

All weekly winners will go into Neil’s end-of-year draw, more here.
