Four Corners Adds to 2018 Firepower

ABC investigative flagship Four Corners will add four outstanding journalists to its team in 2018: reporters Louise Milligan, Sophie McNeill and Sean Nicholls, and producer Lesley Robinson.

Louise Milligan has broken a succession of major stories while a reporter on 7:30, including the allegations of sexual abuse against Cardinal George Pell. Her book ‘Cardinal’ recently won a Walkley Award and the Sir Owen Dixon NSW Law Reporter of the Year Award. She has reported two stories for Four Corners this year, ‘Inside the Greens’ and ‘After the Game’.

Sophie McNeill is one of Australia’s finest foreign correspondents and video journalists, and is currently based in Jerusalem as a Middle East Correspondent. Her outstanding journalism has earned her many accolades, including three Walkley Awards.

Sean Nicholls has earned a reputation as a top-class political reporter and investigative journalist during his career at Fairfax Media, where he rose through the ranks to become State Political Editor on The Sydney Morning Herald, a role he held from 2010.

Lesley Robinson is one of the ABC’s most experienced current affairs producers, honing her skills as a first-rate journalist and storyteller during 17 years at 7:30.

Four Corners Executive Producer Sally Neighbour said: “The addition of these outstanding journalists will further cement Four Corners’ position as the standard bearer of the finest investigative journalism.”

The newcomers join a team that includes reporters Sarah Ferguson, Caro Meldrum-Hanna, Michael Brissenden, Linton Besser, and Debbie Whitmont.
