Deborah Knight

Charles Sturt University graduate and accomplished journalist, Deborah Knight began her career in media at the 2WG radio station in Wagga Wagga and has more than 15 years of experience in the industry. Radio was Deborah’s first love, and after several years spent fine-tuning her skills, and keen for a new challenge, she took up an offer from Mix 106.5 in Sydney.

From there Deborah accepted an excellent opportunity to join state broadcaster the ABC, where she further secured a reputation as a serious and noteworthy journalist within the industry. Her ability to swiftly grasp new subject matter was quickly noticed and the national broadcaster utilised her talents across a variety of roles from rural reporting to Triple J, followed by the prestigious AM and breakfast program on Radio National. From radio to television Deborah’s first role as a presenter/reporter was with the much-loved ABC TV show Landline.

Live Entertainment

Rat Rack

Robbie Howard, Alfredo Miller and Johnny Edwards perform as Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jnr and the King of Cool Dean Martin. The Rat Pack are back Down Under to inject their own brand of swing to Australian venues. These Kings of Swing are famously known for their swingin’ sounds and hilarious improvised comedy routines. Their six-piece swing group promises to deliver the sound, the comedy and the spontaneity that they made their own throughout the ’60s and ’70s.

Robbie embodies Frank at his musical best with his big band hits Come Fly With Me and New York New York; Alfredo recreates Sammy and his incredible singing talent with his rendition of Mr. Bo Jangles. Johnny channels Dean Martin at his relaxed best, crooning through Everybody Loves Somebody and That’s Amore.
