Radio 2UE 954 is delighted to announce the engagement of expert travel broadcaster Pamela Wright as presenter of Talking Travel at 3pm on Sundays starting 10th July 2016.
Pamela has substantial travel experience and has a long career in travel writing and broadcasting. Since winning an award for services to tourism on radio from the Minister for Tourism in the 1980s, she has continued to travel extensively both in Australia and overseas.
Talking Travel with Pamela Wright will incorporate destinations, travel stories, news of the week, luxury travel, tips, adventure, cruising, travel deals and listener talk back.
“This is a great opportunity to talk about all things related to travel and some of the many places I’ve been lucky enough to visit over the years. My first assignment was white water rafting in 1980 on the Sepik River in the New Guinea jungle. A recent trip was an incredible cruise in Alaska amongst glaciers, looking for and finding bears, whales and sea lions.”
Most amazing: A whirlwind trip around the world in twelve days – Sydney to Guangzhou, Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, Buenos Aires, Colonia Uruguay then Colombo back to Sydney.
Most ridiculous: Considering the distance, Baku in Azerbaijan for three days.
Most exciting: Impossible to say – Argentina, Italy, Africa, Jordan, Alaska, Australia, Ireland, Antarctica – I think the A’s have it.
Pamela is a Life Member and current committee member of the Australian Society of Travel Writers.
