BEVAN JONES BIO
Bevan Jones, aka 'Bevo' is a television and radio presenter, MC, corporate event host and sports journalist in Adelaide.
Bevo is the host, producer and creator of ‘Legends with Bevo(previously Chewing the Fat)
He has also appeared on 9Life in a television show called ‘Find Me a Dream Home’.
Bevo also writes for the Messenger during the soccer season and has previously written for the A League, NBL and WBBL.
Bevo got his first break in September 2017 where he won a role as the Solo Breakfast Announcer and Producer of his own show on commercial radio in the Riverland.
For six months he got some of the biggest names in Australia on the show including: Jeff Horne, Lynne McGranger (Irene from Home and Away), Kerri-Anne Kennerley, Sam Mac, John Jarrett and Amanda Keller.
In March 2018 he was back in Adelaide and this meant a new exciting project for him called ‘Chewing the Fat, which was re-branded to Legends with Bevo in late 2019’.
The concept is that Bevo has a light hearted chat on-camera with past and present sports people, icons of the entertainment industry and those doing great things in the community!
Since that time Bevo has had some of the biggest names in sport and the entertainment industry*.
In late 2019, it was time for a re-brand and ‘Chewing the Fat’ has now become ‘Legends with Bevo’.

It was a huge thrill on Legends with Bevo to interview three-time Brisbane Lions premiership star and one of the greatest ever AFL players, Simon Black.
After a long hiatus, it was great to finally do an interview for Legends with Bevo in person and what a great guest to kick things off!
I really enjoyed catching up with Belle Brockhoff an Australian snowboarder, who is a four time world champion and has competed for Australia twice at the Winter Olympics.
I was very lucky to interview the lovely Lynne McGranger who has played the character of Irene Roberts on Home and Away for an amazing 27 years.
Strings is one of the best public speakers going around and a brilliant guest to kick off Legends with Bevo Live!
