Amanda Keller Recalls Her Time On Simon Townsend's Wonder World
Can you believe that this week marks 40 years since Simon Townsend’s Wonder World first aired?
You might be surprised to learn that Amanda Keller started her career in the media as a researcher on the iconic Australian children’s television show that ran from 1979 to 1987.
Despite unsuccessfully applying for the role on the show when she was straight out of university, she was approached shortly after when a researcher resigned. When a show producer contacted her asking whether she was still interested, she jumped at the opportunity. That’s where the fun started!
It’s safe to say that Simon Townsend’s Wonder World is what catapulted Amanda Keller’s career in the media.
