The Australian celebrity turns 61 today.

Kochie, as his many fans and friends call him, was at work from early this morning on the Channel 7 's Sunrise which he has been with since 2003.

When not entertaining Australia on the morning variety show, Kochie continues his keen interest in financial matters, writing for various publications including Seniors News.

The Adelaide-born TV star trained as an accountant before joining The Australian as financial journalist.

Using his smart financial mind, Kochie also started Personal Investment and My Business magazines.

Kochie was nominated for a silver Logie in 2004 and 2005 for Best TV Presenter.

In 2007 the father of four was named Australian Father of the Year by the Australian Father's Day Council.

Away from the camera the 61-year-old is chairman of AFL club Port Adelaide Football Club.
