Bevan Jones, aka Bevo is a television and radio presenter as well as a sports journalist in Adelaide.
Bevo is a current presenter on the SA Sports Show on Channel 44 and is the host, producer and creator of ‘Legends with Bevo’. He has also appeared on 9Life in a television show called ‘Find Me a Dream Home’.
Bevo also writes for the NBL and for the Messenger during the soccer season.
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’.
The concept behind ‘Chewing the Fat’ 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’.
