TV Presenter


Julia Zemiro


Julia Zemiro is one of Australia’s most recognisable television faces. As the host of the iconic music quiz show, RocKwiz (SBS, 2005 – 2016) she made her name as a charismatic ringmaster of live television. She took those skills into her co-hosting role of (Australia’s coverage of) the Eurovision Song Contest (2008 – 2016) where her agile presence made those original broadcasts some of the most memorable and gently irreverent in Australian television history.

From 2013 – 2022, Zemiro co-produced and hosted nine seasons of the hugely successful, Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery (ABC) proving she could also handle more serious, long-form interviews with ease. The series’ longevity firmly cemented her as one of Australia’s most likeable television talents.

A graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts, Zemiro returned to her thespian roots in 2020 when she starred in the Logie-award-winning ABC sitcom, Fisk. Over two high-rating seasons, Zemiro proved she is also a virtuoso comedic actress.

In 2019 and 2020 she brought her big vision producing skills to the Adelaide Cabaret Festival as Artistic Director, curating a diverse and dynamic program of international and local artists.

With a work ethic to match her talent, she has also been the captain’s pick for many highprofile international interviews and specials including, Louis Theroux, Bill Bryson, Stephen Fry, Michael Mosley, Peter Capaldi (Dr Who press tour) and Brian Cox (Stargazing Live).
