She joins an impressive list of Masters of Ceremonies, who in the past have included John Campbell, Caroline Robinson, Jackie Clarke and Michelle A’Court.
Ms Pickles has been a 3News Sport presenter, Reporter and Producer since 2002 and has covered many major events, including the Beijing and London Olympics, Melbourne, Delhi and Glasgow Commonwealth Games, 2007 Rugby World Cup (but we will try to forget that one!), America’s Cup, numerous Rowing World Championships, Ironman World Championship and the Warriors v Sea Eagles 2011 NRL Grand Final.

Married to Trevor Swan, who runs his own engineering business, she enjoys travelling and shares her husband’s love of American Muscle Cars. Her pride and joy is a 1959 El Camino which is currently under restoration. The restoration may continue until she wins lotto!
