Angela Pippos

Author, Corporate, Inspirational Speaker, Journalist, Social Commentator, Speaking Out

Angela Pippos is a journalist, TV and radio presenter, columnist and author of The Goddess Advantage – One Year in the Life of a Football Worshipper. It’s as much about love, loyalty, stuffed tomatoes and Greek mythology as it is about Australian rules football.

Where were you born?

Adelaide, which explains my choice of football team and love of shiraz.

What other jobs have you had?

Film producer (Counterpunch Productions), sports journalist and presenter, 7.30 Report researcher, waitress and fishmonger (handling slimy creatures prepared me well for a career in sport).

What themes are recurring in your work?

Sport and society, with an emphasis on equality, diversity and humour.

What have been the highlights of your career?

Presenting sport on the ABC, becoming a published author, watching our film, The Day of the Broken on the big screen for the first time and meeting Ayrton Senna.

Where have your works been published?

The New Daily, The Sunday Age, Women’s Agenda, Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, AFL.com.au, The Geelong Times.

What are you passionate about?

Feminism, equality, writing, sport, food, film, politics and my beautiful boy.

Haven’t I seen you before?

I presented the sport segment on ABC TV News for almost a decade and have a habit of popping up on other shows. Most of the time invited.

Anything else you’d like to share with us?

I’ve cage-dived with Great Whites, trekked the Annapurna circuit in Nepal, have an honours degree in politics and in 2007 was approached by the ALP to stand for the safe state seat of Williamstown.
