Sylvia Jeffreys

An established journalist and one of the most versatile members of the Nine Network’s top-rating news and current affairs team. Brand ambassador and highly sought after MC and corporate facilitator. 


Sylvia Jeffreys is an established journalist and presenter with the Nine Network, Australia and has cemented herself as one of the most versatile and respected members of the Network’s top-rating news and current affairs team.

A trained journalist, Queensland-born Sylvia launched her television career with Channel 9 in Brisbane, her reports, in particular, on the devastating 2010-2011 Queensland floods, which claimed more than 30 lives, and the highly-powerful and destructive tropical Cyclone Yasi in early 2011, winning high praise from the network.

Since transferring to the Nine Network’s Sydney headquarters in 2012, Sylvia has become one of the most familiar faces on news and current affairs programs.

From 2014 to 2018 she has been the national face of Nine News as the Today Show’s news anchor.  In this role she has covered international stories such as the Dreamworld Ride Tragedy and the Australia/Pacific tour of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.  She has also reported from the scenes of major bushfires and floods across several states and interviewed some of the world’s leading celebrities, including soccer legend David Beckham and tennis star Venus Williams.

In 2019, Sylvia is developing a new programme with the Nine Network, while also establishing her own podcast series with Nine’s premium women’s platform, Future Women.  She will also continue to file special reports across the news and current affairs departments.

Away from the Nine cameras, Sylvia is also a dedicated and passionate ambassador for national charity Youngcare which seeks to find appropriate housing for young adults with high care disabilities.


I have known Sylvia for nearly 5 years. Sylvia was the MC and host at our Melbourne Cup Day lunch at CHISWICK Restaurant in 2013. We have done many Melbourne Cup events at all of our restaurants over the years and Sylvia was without doubt the most impressive MC we have contracted. Sylvia is engaging, intelligent and captivating and as an MC strikes the perfect balance of professionalism and warmth. I would highly recommend her as an MC and I am confident she would be capable of hosting any type of event.

It was a pleasure working with Sylvia again at our AIA Vitality 4490 Summit. Sylvia led a fantastic Q&A with our keynote speaker Venus Williams and managed to set the perfect tone for the event. Conversational and informal, discussing topics that really resonated with our audience. We would highly recommend Sylvia for speaking events of this kind and look forward to working with her again in the future.
