Radio star Amanda Keller collapses on air after sharing devastating news about her husband's health during Australia Day segment

Amanda Keller collapsed during her WSFM breakfast show “Jonesy and Amanda” on Friday.

The 61-year-old was in the middle of an Australian Day segment alongside co-host Brendan Jones when she shared a personal message about her husband Harley, who is battling Parkinson's disease.

The pair were discussing “great Australian songs that make you feel good” for their Australia Day Fight for Your Flashback segment when Amanda burst into tears.

After choosing “The Best Years of Our Lives,” a 1982 song by Australian singer Richard Clapton, as her feel-good tune, Amanda found herself completely out of breath.

“The older I get, the different I see this song,” she began.

“There is a text here [in the song] and I think of Harley going through health issues.

“It says, 'I wish time would stop 10 years ago.'”

She continued, “I'm slowly learning that life is constantly changing.”

“Don’t waste your time, but this is a lesson for all of us, whether your children leave home or your parents die. We all have our challenges, but hold on to each moment because it is so precious.”

As she introduced the segment, Amanda admitted she felt “ambivalent” about Australia Day, which she said celebrated the 236th anniversary of the “modern white settlement”.

“Wouldn't it be good to have a day where we go, 'Today is the day we all feel good'?”

She added that her “Flashback Aussie Song” segment was something she could support.

“I feel conflicted about Australia Day – but music connects us all,” she said.

This comes after Amanda revealed last October that her husband Harley Oliver has been suffering from Parkinson's disease for years.

She shared the news during an episode of her podcast Double A Chattery.

The WSFM breakfast host, who has been married to Oliver since 1989, explained that her husband was diagnosed about six years ago, but the couple has only now decided to discuss the disease publicly.

Parkinson's is an incurable brain disease characterized by uncontrollable movements, including tremors, stiffness, and problems with balance and coordination.

Unfortunately, the symptoms of Parkinson's disease worsen over time.
