The Seven Network is delighted to announce that one of Australia’s most popular and talented television presenters, Chris Brown, will join the network in July.
The much-loved, award-winning presenter and author started his television career on Seven’s Harry’s Practice two decades ago before going on to star in and present some of Australia’s most successful programs.
Seven West Media Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, James Warburton, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Chris back to Seven. It’s been too long.
“Chris is one of the most popular and recognised people on Australian TV, bringing warmth, intelligence and a great sense of humour to everything he does. We can’t wait to have him on board and to announce the great new content he will star in.”
Growing up in the suburbs of Newcastle NSW with his dad Graeme as the local vet, it seemed logical that Chris would follow in his father’s footsteps. But Chris’ path has been a diverse and interesting one.
After graduating from Sydney University with first-class honours, Chris’ career took a strange turn when he was spotted by a talent scout telling animal stories over a few beers in a pub. He has been telling stories and helping animals on our screens ever since.
From Harry’s Practice to Burke’s Backyard and then Bondi Vet, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!, The Living Room, Vet Gone Wild and a regular panellist on The Project, animals and adventure have made Chris one of TV’s hardest-working hosts. Yet, he still finds time to do what he truly loves: working as a vet in the Bondi Junction Veterinary Hospital, surfing, playing some (terrible) guitar and spending time with his dog Buzz and cat Cricket.
Chris said: “I’m not entirely sure my old access pass works but once we get over that hurdle and I’m back from the jungle, I can’t wait to sink my teeth into some exciting new projects in the second half of the year and beyond with Seven.
Seven will announce details of Chris’ new projects for Channel 7 and 7plus later this year.
