Heard on Perth’s new hit92.9 each afternoon, Ty offers a unique and creative touch to music radio. He brings a fresh energy and relatability to listeners in a city he lives and breathes.

He not only presses play on some of the world’s biggest artists, but chats to them as well. See his interviews with superstar producer Mark Ronson and legendary RnB group 112 here.

A different perspective never hurt anyone right? Ty brings a fresh angle and young vibe to any television opportunity.

Aged just 22 – Tyrone made his first TV appearance in 2013 live across Australia on Fox Sports as commentator of an international basketball series. Now 24, he has worked as a National Basketball League TV commentator for more than three years.

On the call when a modern day Australian NBL classic was played out at Perth Arena in February 2015 – Ty’s call of the final play can be seen below.

He has also worked with channel Nine as a presenter on their Today Nine News Perth morning program, broadcasting live from all over Perth. His crosses live from Whiteman Park and Rockingham can be seen below.


Ty is young, fresh, energetic, weird ‘in a good way’ (his words) and is no stranger to Perth’s MC circuit. He is a regular host for marquee Perth events including the City to Surf, Rottnest Channel Swim, has worked with Event Cinemas and alongside music labels Sony, Universal, and Warner.

Also a qualified journalist, Ty has worked in breaking news at News Ltd's Perth Now in 2014.

Formerly a foot doctor, Tyrone does not have a foot fettish, BUT did call feet his occupation before jumping into media. His Podiatry work cannot be seen here ;)
