Sarah Ferguson

Sarah Ferguson

Sarah Ferguson is a Gold Walkley winner who began her career working for UK newspapers. Moving to Paris, she became a fixer for quite pretentious British arts programs being made in France. An interlude in current affairs changed everything. The arts producers said she would hate journalism as the people involved with it ‘had no manners.’ It was a perfect match! After working for European broadcasters she moved to Washington DC and then Australia. Following stints at SBS and Channel 9, she later became a reporter for (and now the anchor of) ABC TV's Four Corners.

She has won three Walkleys, four Logies and many other awards.
