Joel Crean


Journalist

Class of 2004

Inducted into the Frankston High School “Back to School” Hall of Fame 2013

After completing his VCE at Frankston High School in 2004, Joel studied a Bachelor of Arts (Journalism) at Monash University.  It was during his study he completed an internship at Southern Cross Ten.  This lead to a job offer to join the news team in Canberra.

After more than two years writing and presenting news in the nation’s capital, Joel was offered a new role as Host and Executive Producer of Weeknights, a new, locally produced, prime-time news program, which airs across north-east Victoria.

Joel is the sole presenter of Weeknights and oversees all aspects of the production on a daily basis. While other news rooms are winding back local content and production, Weeknights has established itself as a well-respected part of the regional media landscape.”
