Who is he?
Caleb Bond is Australia’s youngest political commentator and a multiplatform media talent on TV, radio and in print.
At 17, he writes a weekly column for Sydney's The Daily Telegraph and The Advertiser in his hometown of Adelaide, and features in a weekly segment on Perth’s 6PR Drive with Adam Shand.
He also regularly appears on national radio and TV as a current affairs commentator.
Caleb is never short of an opinion. From politics to social issues he is in touch with the world and always has an insightful and oftentimes controversial view to share. He calls it as he sees it. See here for examples of his recent work.
As a radio regular, he has built an identity amongst listeners all over the country as a switched-on young man and an interesting beacon of sense. His commentary has earnt him the praise of some of Austrailia's most respected radio and print commentators, including Commercial Radio Hall of Fame recipient Jeremy Cordeaux and The Daily Telegraph's Miranda Devine.
With a background in theatre and public speaking, Caleb can engage and entertain audiences in a way that is unusual for someone of his age.
He has a history of backing up words with actions, representing groups that he believes deserve a voice. When the South Australian Labor government introduced laws that made major changes to the regulation of P-plate drivers, Caleb launched a petition voicing opposition, gathering in excess of 4,500 signatures.
As a young lad he appeared on TV show ‘Rove Live’ twice (here and here). This resulted in him recording a series of radio advertisements for Raine & Horne and Mobil.
