Jacinta Tynan is a news presenter with Sky News (previously ABC TV) author, columnist and, her favourite bit, mum to two little boys 19 months apart.
Jacinta is regarded as a commentator for her generation with her popular and candid columns about contemporary life, love and getting it right, including a widely debated piece on the joys of motherhood (Sunday Life) which every mother in Australia seemed to have an opinion on. She appears regularly on Sunrise, Weekend Sunrise and The Morning Show on the Seven Network and has been a guest on Kerri-Anne, Today, Insight (SBS), and Today Tonight’s special on Australia’s Most Influential Women. She was also brave enough to appear on The Chaser!
Jacinta’s first book, Good Man Hunting (Random House), a memoir about looking for love, earned her the accolade, “Australia’s answer to Carrie Bradshaw”. It led to her popular weekly column with the Sunday Telegraph. She now contributes regularly to Sunday Life Magazine including a recent stint as Guest Columnist. Her second book, ‘Some Girls Do: My Life as a Teenager‘ (Allen and Unwin) is an anthology of top female authors writing the true story of their adolescence. Royalties are donated to SISTER2Sister - a mentor program for disadvantaged teenage girls – for whom Jacinta is Patron.
