Ellen Fanning's Biography

Highly experienced and respected, Ellen Fanning is an award-winning current affairs journalist and an exceptional MC, moderator and facilitator.

 

At 24, Ellen Fanning broke new ground, becoming the first woman to host one of ABC Radio's national current affairs programs. Two years at the helm of PM were followed by several years anchoring AM on ABC Radio and serving as occasional host of ABC TV's 7.30 Report.

 

Ellen served as the ABC's Washington correspondent and has been a reporter for the Nine Network's 60 Minutes and Sunday programs. She was the last presenter of the Nine Network's prestigious Sunday program and a columnist on legendary The Bulletin magazine.

 

She has reported from locations as diverse as Transylvania and the North Pole, under the Indian Ocean aboard an Australian Navy submarine and 30,000 feet over Serbia from a US Airforce refuelling jet. She has interviewed every current and former Australian Prime Minister, and has met and interviewed world leaders from France, Britain, Ireland, Israel and the United States.

 

Ellen Fanning has had extensive experience moderating political, business and community events in Australia. As a facilitator her strength lies in her ability to clarify goals, define roles and reach agreed outcomes across both cultural and language barriers.

 

Ellen has hosted award ceremonies for government, business groups and industry organisations over many years, including the BRW / ANZ Private Business Awards 2009, Australian Council of Local Government - Commendation and Category Awards and Dinner, 2009; Australian Investor Relationship Awards 2008; and the Prime Minister John Howard's Employer of the Year Awards at the Great Hall, Parliament House.

 

An impeccable presenter, Ellen is able to ad-lib and improvise when necessary to keep events flowing and to ensure prize winners and other presenters feel comfortable when delivering their own speeches stage.

 

With a wealth of experience in communications, politics, social, cultural and business issues, Ellen's informative and stimulating presentations make her an ideal MC, moderator, facilitator and keynote speaker.
