12 thoughts on “Lara Hyams Age, Biography Wiki【 ABC News 】Spouse Partner, Height”

  1. Lara is a very funny, intelligent, witty, and caring person and is one of the best presenters at ABC. As a person who understands weather and politics, I can never fault her and it is always refreshing to watch her appearing in whatever role she is given, in particular in the present climate of bad journalism which is engulfing the ABC currently. Keep up the good work Lara.

  2. One of the most enjoyable people on ABC to share time with. Erudite, interesting, and personable at all times, and a complete natural for the profession.

  3. I have complained previously about her rushed delivery and noisy and deep intakes of air when she breathed after having spoken long sentences at a rapid pace. She appears to be managing this better. Tonight she said FIVE times “we will see.” She needs some tutoring in oral communication and delivery (this was doing the weather).

    Jack in Sydney.

  4. I came here to see how tall you are, Lara. When sitting with the other presenters, you appear at least half a head taller.

  5. To Lara,

    You are a great presenter and a down to earth hard worker! A real trier. The black dress she has on today’s PM news looks great on her. Keep up your great presenting. Very pleasant to watch and listen to.

  6. What secondary school did Lara attend? I’ll wager she was a member of the senior debating team, probably the captain! With her quick wit and crystal clear delivery, she would have been a dynamite debater.

  7. Another of my favourite female presenters at the ABC. I wish her and her partner well with the birth of their child not all that far away
