Today I had the privilege of being interviewed by Gary Carvolth about my new book “Follow Your Own Path“.
Gary Carvolth’s career in the media has spanned more than 50 years. After humble beginnings as one of the hosts of Channel 7’s Club Seventeen while still in his early teens, Gary established himself as a prominent figure on WA television during the 1960s when he hosted popular evening variety show “In Perth Tonight” before taking on a production role with the network.
Gary Carvolth is a two-time winner of the Logie for most popular male personality on WA television in 1963 and 1964.
Perhaps one of Gary’s best achievements was his role in establishing the first TVW Channel 7 Telethon in 1968, working alongside Australian TV legends Graham Kennedy, Johnny O’Keefe and Stuart Wagstaff.
Gary Carvolth was also responsible for securing a series of exclusive interviews for Channel 7 with boxing great Muhammad Ali ahead of his world championship fight in Kuala Lumpur in 1975.
Gary Carvolth then made the switch to radio and became known as the voice of sport through his long-running sports program, Sports Connection, on Radio 6PR. His “Afternoons” program, which he co-hosted with Jenny Seaton, dominated the airwaves during the 1990s and to this day he remains one of the most popular and respected voices on the wireless.
Gary Carvolth is also an accomplished MC and has hosted a number of events, including the welcome home parades for Olympic and Paralympic athletes after the Barcelona 1992 and Atlanta 1996 Games.
Gary Carvolth now runs 101 Business Radio with Michael Worthington.
