Here’s two more weather girl presenters that did not get included in our Flashback #38 tribute. Briony Behets (pictured left with newsreader Bruce Mansfield) was a model before turning actress with roles in steamy soap operas Number 96 and The Box, and then later becoming a weather presenter at Melbourne ATV0‘s Eyewitness News in 1976. At the same time, Melbourne’s GTV9 announced their new weather presenter, Kerry Armstrong – fresh out of school and later to go onto an acting career in movies and television.

In over fifty years of Australian television, only one name has been an almost constant presence during that time – Bert Newton.
