Not just a pretty face, our new host Pat is more than meets the eye! He lives the double life of a thrill seeker and a media student at UNSW. From skiing steep slopes in winter to swimming with sharks in summer, he’ll take on anything to get his adrenalin rush! Pat has not only had six years of TV host experience on SBS, but is also a budding musician himself, who knows his stuff when it comes to music.
Pat lives in Oatley NSW, right near but certainly NOT in the Shire. He is a media student at University of New South Wales and loves everything to do with production, on-screen and off-screen. There are not many places where you will see Pat without his camera in his hand. In winter Pat likes to ski the slopes and in summer he swims with the sharks, and is always looking for challenging environments and places to get his sports adrenalin rush.
Pat was born with a passion to entertain. He has hosted a show on SBS (not the porno shows unfortunately) for about six years now. He picked up the saxophone when he was six and has not stopped playing it since. Pat also likes to give guitar and the drums a beating every now and then too. Pat’s music has taken him all around the world, from Cuba, an awesome place where he developed his love of rum, cigars and the Cubo-African beats to the many clubs in Europe and Asia.
As Pat says:
“I enjoy all types of music and appreciate the talents of all music makers. Dubstep, chillwave and jazz are at the top of my list. You’ll find me on the floor of nightclubs getting my rave on for Knife Party, Skrillex and Nero but also immersing myself in the delights of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in the Opera House.”
Penny Morgan’s passion is definitely performing, having studied acting at NIDA in 2007, an acting intensive at ATYP in 2009 and has studied performance in the United States at the LA Professional Actors Workshop.
She has been involved across many mediums including theatre, musical performances, and television and short films. She has modelled for commercial photo shoots for Cosmopolitan magazine and MX and has been involved in major television commercial campaigns for William Blue Hospitality College, Gloria Jeans Coffee, Nurofen and Bonds Underwear Australia.
Another passion of hers is burlesque dancing and has been seen performing cabaret shows at various venues in Sydney including The Hilton Hotel and Zeta Bar.
Mitch Feltscheer is a Sydney-based actor and presenter who graduated from Macquarie University with a Bachelor in Creative Arts (International Studies) with a major in Drama and Performance.
In just a few short months, Mitch has established himself in the entertainment business as a consummate all-rounder. His background in theatre and improvisation has imbued him with a quick wit and infectious energy unseen in other actors, and his willingness to ask the tough questions – “Would Gandhi have been a Directioner?” – lends his writing style an endearing, tongue-in-cheek quality.
Mitch graduated from Macquarie University with a Bachelor of Creative Arts (International Studies) majoring in Drama and Performance. In his formative years as a performer, he established himself as a stalwart of amateur theatre productions. Last year, he set his sights on television and to that end, entered the Channel [V] Presenter Search. After several intensive rounds of celebrity interviews, impromptu pieces and on-the-spot music reviews, Mitch finished in the top 20 from over 6000 applicants. On the back of that experience, he teamed up with his fellow Channel [V] alumnus Sam Taunton to create the witty, topical and self-deprecating podcast ‘Consolation Prize’, while also contributing to the North Shore’s 99.3 FM.
Now, Mitch joins us as a host on DJ central, bringing with him all his experience as a presenter, his natural confidence and effortless charm.
