The award-winning breakfast radio host has taken out two gongs at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards (ACRAs), including Best Entertainment Presenter. With regular appearances on The ProjectThe Morning Show,Studio TenBachelor UnpackedThe Loop and Celebrity Name Game, Tanya’s first book Am I Doing this Right? was a best seller, and she’s now in the process of writing her second book with Allen & Unwin. The RUOK? Day ambassador and Cosmo Woman Of The Year nominee has expanded her dynasty to take on a carb-themed make-up range. Seriously though, how good is bread?
