ANGELA PIPPOS is an award-winning journalist, presenter, producer, documentary-maker and author. She’s best known for anchoring the sports segment on the ABC TV News for almost a decade and is currently a co-host of Saturday Grandstand on ABC Radio.
In 2017 Angela released her second book, BREAKING THE MOULD – Taking A Hammer To Sexism In Sport. Now on its third reprint, it provides a fascinating insight into the changing Australian sporting landscape, and challenges all of us to keep working towards gender equality in sport. It was selected by the Grattan Institute for the Prime Minister’s Summer Reading List and it made The Australia Institute’s Essential Reading List.
The television documentary she co-wrote, co-produced and presented about the rise of women in Australian Rules football, LEAGUE OF HER OWN, aired on the Seven Network in early 2017 and the follow-up documentary, HEROES, screened on the ABC later that year.
After more than 20 years as a sports journalist covering mostly men’s sport Angela says: “it feels great to finally be working on projects that reflect my values and who I am”.
