News Anchor and Journalist

Candice Wyatt is an integral part of Ten Eyewitness News in Melbourne having taken on roles as News Anchor and as senior reporter covering international and local news stories.

She was born in Melbourne but grew up on a farm outside Warrnambool and decided at age 12 that she wanted to be a journalist. Her passion never waned and after finishing school she completed a Bachelor of Arts (Journalism) at Deakin University. Two weeks after graduating she picked up her first full time job as a journalist and never looked back.

Since then Candice has worked in newspapers, radio and television and cut her teeth in Melbourne as a crime reporter for Ten Eyewitness News.

During her career she has covered the Beaconsfield Mine Disaster, the infamous murder of Jill Meagher, the disappearance of flight MH370, chased drug smugglers to both Indonesia and Malaysia and filled in as a co-host of Channel Ten’s “The Project”.

She was the first to broadcast Shapelle Corby’s release from jail in Bali to Australia and was live on air for an hour in the lead up to her being freed.

Following on from that, Candice was rewarded for her body of work by being promoted to co-anchor of the Ten Eyewitness News Melbourne bulletin, alongside Stephen Quartermain in November 2014… But that hasn’t stopped her thirst for being on the road and telling stories.

She recently spent one month in Brazil covering the Rio Olympics for Ten Eyewitness News, working crazy hours and loving every single second.

Back home Candice is an Ambassador for Cure Brain Cancer Australia… A foundation started by the country’s top Neurosurgeon, Charlie Teo. In 2013 Candice lost her mother Karyn to this insidious disease after an horrific 6 month battle… which instigated her desire to raise awareness and campaign for funding.

Candice’s mother had just trekked Kokoda twice and was about to begin training for her first marathon when she was diagnosed with brain cancer. She was just 56, and Candice has learned to live a life without her… While carrying her legacy.

Socialising with friends and family and exploring Melbourne’s food and wine culture are some of Candice’s favourite things… She’s a passionate Essendon fan, loves to travel, keep fit and is never one to sit still.

Those last day of work feels! It’s funny how you can train, fundraise and hustle your butt off for months.. and then the time for action comes around and you go “Oh yeah, that’s right.. I actually have to do this thing!” That’s how I feel right now. It’s all a bit surreal. I leave for Nepal on Friday night and donations are still open.. Link is in my bio! PS - thanks to our @atvliveeyeboyz for putting my strength to the test today.. but, I got this 👊🏼💪🏼🏔🏃🏼‍♀️ #Trek4BrainCancer #AnnapurnaCircuit #Nepal #Trekking #IveBeenInspired #CureBrainCancer #Ambassador #BrainCancer #Namaste #10NewsFirst #Melbourne 📸: @philipxclark ...

Let’s talk about anxiety 😔. I leave for my Nepal trek in 11 days and I’ve never been more terrified of anything in my life. Everything about this trip is sooooo far out of my comfort zone. But I’ve made my motivations clear many times.. and hundreds of amazing people and organisations have donated to my @curebraincancer fundraiser. That’s what it’s all about. But that doesn’t stop my mind from FREAKING OUT.. which is leading to high anxiety and insomnia. I’m being real about this because I’d like you to know that none of this is easy. Between work, training and fundraising.. I’m exhausted and this morning I felt like the world was caving in. Luckily I went to the coast for work and found a spot by the water to write my story in the sun, which helped immensely. And when I got back to Melbourne, I trained. I’m hoping tonight finally brings some sleep, but I’m also hoping this encourages you all to speak out if you’re ever feeling anxious. We’re only human. 🤍 • #anxiety #insomnia #sleeplessnights #mindset #trek4braincancer #annapurnacircuit #nepal #treknepal #nepal #trek #hike #lovemountains #mountainlife #instafit #altitudetraining #altitude #fundraising #braincancer #curebraincancer #brain #cancer #itsokaynottobeokay #stigmastopswithme ...
