Rosie has been one of Sydney Weekender’s friendly and familiar faces for the past few years and says of all the roles she has been lucky enough to have in the Aussie media, this one takes the cake!
Rosie’s extensive television and radio career has spanned the past ten years, starting with producing roles for Stan Zemanek and John Stanley at Radio 2UE then transitioning into television as Executive Producer for Terry Willesee at Sky News. Rosie has worked in the newsroom for both the Seven and Nine Networks and has presented on camera for most free to air and subscription networks across the country as the Perisher Snow Reporter, which she describes as “an incredibly challenging and rewarding experience!”
Rosie spent three years producing for the Today Show at the Nine Network and then presenting for “The Boatique” with Glenn Ridge before moving on to be the morning Anchor presenter on The Weather Channel for Three years on Foxtel and Austar. Rosie says “Australia’s weather is a passion that’s now in my blood”.
Rosie is a qualified Television Journalist and Broadcast Meteorologist and also holds a degree in International Politics, majoring in French, where she has spent some time mastering the language.
Today, apart from bringing the best of NSW to our living rooms on Sydney Weekender, Rosie is a regular on Mix 106.5’s “The 3 pm Pickup” and “Body & Soul”. She can also be spotted filling in for the weather on the Today Show and giving us our winning Lotto numbers. Rosie is also a gifted public speaker and gets a rush out of live emceeing roles from fashion parades to Chamber of Commerce functions and everything in between.
Rosie is married to the Today Show’s weatherman Steve Jacobs and together, with their daughter Isabella, they spend a great deal of their time travelling and experiencing the best that NSW and the world have to offer. In their spare time, they like to get back to their hometowns of Coffs Harbour and Wollongong to see family. When Rosie isn’t travelling, she loves Bikram Yoga and Salsa dancing as well as lazy picnics on Sydney’s eastern beaches.
