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.
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”.
Angela is a regular contributor to 774 ABC Melbourne and 891 ABC Adelaide and her columns appear in The Age and The New Daily. She has an Honours degree in Politics from the University of Adelaide and a Journalism degree from the University of South Australia.
She is currently making a documentary film about the Women’s T20 World Cup called 'The Record'. It is planned for release in late 2020.
