Biographies

Liz Jackson is a multi-award winning journalist who came relatively late to the profession. After working as a lawyer, and then as a 'femocrat' in the New South Wales Public Service, at the age of thirty-three she turned her hand to journalism. In 2005 she became the first female host of ABC Television's program.

Liz Jackson grew up in Parkville, near the University of Melbourne. In the 1970s, after completing an arts degree, she travelled to London where she studied to be a barrister. On her return to Australia she worked for the New South Wales Government.

It was during this time that Liz Jackson moved into a home full of journalists, eventually shifing into journalism herself. 'My life as a public servant seemed a lot less interesting than theirs as journalists,' she said. 'No one seemed to want to know what I did that day.'

Jackson joined the ABC in 1987. After spending seven years in radio, at Radio National and 2JJJ, she joined Four Corners as a reporter. In 2005 she became host of . She is now (2008) back at
