Kirsti Melville

Kirsti Melville is an award-winning documentary producer and the presenter of Earshot on ABC RN.

Based in the most remote capital city on earth – Perth - her love for radio is driven by an insatiable need to hear and share people’s stories, a strong sense of social justice and a desire to pick apart the complexities of human relationships. When she’s not busy recording people’s stories, you’ll find her curled up reading them.
