Veteran Melbourne broadcaster Neil Mitchell has sold his family home of four decades in leafy Malvern East.

The long-time 3AW Mornings host and his wife Selina fetched $2.76 million for the home earlier this year, public records show.

Now their two children have left home, the couple downsized to a $2,462,500 contemporary townhouse and will also keep a holiday home where they hope to spend more time.

“We’ve had some good times here but we moved on,” Mitchell told Domain. “I didn’t feel emotional. It was just a life step.”
