Kier Shorey has been presenting the Breakfast Show at ABC Far North since 2006. Breaky runs from 5 am every weekday and Kier delivers a fast paced, high energy program covering everything from music, local comedy, news and sport to movie reviews, the FNQuiz and great local stories.
Before Kier joined ABC Far North, he was a successful Sydney-based screen writer. His screen writing credits include the feature film Blurred (to earn Kier 1.2 cents please hire this film at your local DVD shop), and Stop, a short film which appeared at the Cannes Film Festival. He has also lent his writing talents to Neighbours, Ocean Girl and Pirate Island.
Kier has a long association with the theatre and has acted for various Cairns theatre companies including the Cairns Little Theatre and the Just Us Theatre Ensemble
Kier says that being Breaky presenter is the ideal job for him, being an exhilarating combination of one part writing, one part performance and one part buffoonery.
As well as his Breakfast slot, Kier, a mad – keen movie fan, presents a regular film review every Wednesday at 10.15 am and hosts the Art Show each Friday morning at 10.30 am.
