Fee Range: B

Felicity Whelan challenged more than 6000 hopefuls to become the new weather presenter for national Nine's Weekend Today Show and she's a natural.

Her fresh faced and adventurous approach has thrilled Cameron Williams, Weekend Today Show host. 'Felicity has a great presence on camera, she's very outgoing, and she has a friendly nature. She's already proven herself by beating thousands of contenders in a pretty tough competition.'

Felicity is no stranger to radio either. Each week Felicity provides Triple M (Melbourne) listeners with a humorous weather update heading into the weekend. She also lends her voice to a diverse range of on air clients such as Just Car Insurance, Mitch Dowd, and the Victorian Government.

Since starting in November, Felicity has received a high level of national media coverage including feature articles in Woman's Day, Jetstar Magazine, TV Week and Take 5 Magazine cover (scheduled for April 2010), just to name a few.

Complimenting her television and radio roles, Felicity has MC'd several high profile Melbourne events including Blue Diamond Stakes Day - Fashions on the Field and Channel Nine's Australia Day celebrations at the Docklands, both 2010.

Away from the limelight, Felicity spends a lot of time outdoors and loves to travel. She worked as a volunteer elephant trainer in Laos in 2005. Felicity is also a supporter of the Orangutan Foundation and sponsors an orangutan called Yoris. In the future, Felicity would like to merge these passions in her presenting roles.
