New presenter: Jason Dundas

Thursday, February 1, 2007

Jason Dundas joined the team of Australia’s Number One travel program, Getaway, in January 2007.

Dundas was born in Western Sydney and attended Jamison High School before commencing a graphic arts degree at the University of Western Sydney.

In 2002 he heard about a VJ search that MTV was running and decided to put his newly learnt television editing skills to use, compiling an audition tape that would catch the attention of MTV producers.


His confident and creative approach to the audition process paid off. After making it into the final five and sailing through a series of additional screen tests, Jason was offered the coveted VJ position.

During his time at MTV Dundas co-hosted the channel’s flagship daily show, Total Request Live (TRL) and more recently could be seen on Full Tank – MTV’s answer to Getaway.

The keen surfer and outdoors enthusiast is thrilled to be involved with Australia’s number one travel program. “I have been given an amazing opportunity and who wouldn’t want to work on Getaway? I have been a fan of the show for years and love the escape you get every week by watching – I can’t imagine how great it will be to actually experience some of the amazing locations around the world.”

Dundas lives on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and in his spare time enjoys dj’ing and surfing.
