Steve Lewis's Biography
Award winning political journalist Steve Lewis has been reporting politics in Canberra since 1992. Steve Lewis is a senior adviser with Newgate Communications and regularly writes for media outlets including The New Daily and appears on Sky News as a political commentator.
Along with the ABC’s Chris Uhlmann, Lewis penned the best-selling political novel, The Marmalade Files. Their latest release, The Mandarin Code, was published on August 1 2014. Steve is also the editor of ‘Stand & Deliver’. ‘Stand & Deliver’ brings together the best speeches of the past fifty years, including many of the giants of recent Australian and international history such as Bill Gates, the Dalai Lama, Barry Humphries, Germaine Greer and prime ministers from Robert Menzies to Tony Abbott.
Steve Lewis brings unrivalled media and political experience to an event after more than two decades working for Australia’s leading newspapers. As a leading figure in the Canberra press gallery, Steve has built an extensive network across the political landscape and within the federal public service. Steve understands the nexus between politics and business and has reported on numerous major transactions involving some of Australia’s leading firms.
He has also developed close links with most of the nation’s leading industry groups and is Senior Vice President of the National Press Club.
Drawn to the national capital by his lust for politics and fondness for pointy-headed policy, Lewis worked for the Fin until 2002 when he moved to The Australian as chief political correspondent. In late 2007, he was hired by the News Limited group publications – the Daily Telegraph, Herald Sun, Advertiser and Courier Mail – to report across the political spectrum.
Steve Lewis is also a foundation member of the House Howlers – the Canberra Press Gallery’s own choir whose crude attempts at political satire have thus far failed to draw any legal writs. He also established Canberra’s night of nights, the Annual Press Gallery Mid Winter Ball.
