Q+A MARK FERGUSON
Yumi Stynes is a writer, broadcaster, TV presenter, food fanatic, fitness enthusiast and mother-of-four and has fun sharing her experiences and wry observations on food, family, art and love.
Yumi kick-started her career back in 2000 when she won the Channel [V] music reporter search and overnight became an Australian household name. During this time Yumi was also writer for various publications where she went on to join Network TEn's Logie winning morning show, The Circle, and in 2011 was part of the team who launched ARN's successful 3PM Pick-Up - A show that speaks directly to mums and makes that hectic school run period just a little more entertaining.
Ealier this year, Yumi published her first book "The Zero Fucks Cookbook" and is the host of a new ABC podcast called "Ladies, We need to Talk" which dives headlong into the tricky topics we often avoid.
Yumi combines a unique take on the world with a natural joyfulness. Her life experiences, from being a mother of four, to growing up half-Japanese in rural Australia, or being in a rock band; have all made her a versatile, intelligent and witty presenter.
Yumi can be heard right across the KIIS Network sharing her afternoons with co-hosts Monty Dimond and Bec Judd every Wednesday from 3-4pm

You'll be on those feet a lot, and working those shoes HEAPS. Long toenails are baaaad.
