Renee Criddle:

Born and bred in the Blue Mountains, Renee traded the bush for the beach in '96 to pursue her passion for writing (and talking).

The Kiama High School girl bestowed with the "Could Talk Under Wet Cement" award graduated as a Dean's Scholar from the University of Wollongong with a BA in Communications/Journalism and English, which included a semester in the United States.

She then worked as a journalist for UOW's Media Unit, where she also wrote education pieces for the Illawarra Mercury and was accepted into the coveted Fairfax Media Editorial Traineeship program in Sydney.

A few years later she took the plunge into radio...and within months at i98FM had broken several major news stories.

Renee's goals include one day understanding the game of cricket and the physics of the chocolate brownie, conquering her fear of moths and perfecting her French to the point where she can present a complete news bulletin "en français."
