Emma Griffiths

Emma Griffiths

From breaking news and political reporting to the latest in entertainment, Emma Griffiths loves the variety of presenting a fast paced Drive program. Taking up a post in Moscow for 4 years saw Emma reporting on the school siege in Beslan, the political upheavals of Ukraine’s “orange” revolution, travelling to the Arctic circle and of course, keeping a close eye on Vladimir Putin. Emma’s coverage in Beslan won her a highly commended nod in the 2005 Walkley Awards. The road from Moscow led to Sydney and Canberra for a long stint of political reporting, including a number of years reporting from the Parliament House bureau. Emma has moved back to her home town and now presents the ABC Brisbane Drive program.
