Event description

Description

The Andrew Olle Media Lecture is an annual black-tie dinner that focuses on the role and future of the media.

The lecture is held in honour of one of the ABC’s iconic broadcasters, Andrew Olle. Following his death from a brain tumour in 1995, a fund was set up for brain cancer research. The money raised on the night goes directly to the Cure Brain Cancer Neuro-oncology Group at UNSW, which is now a world leader in personalised medicine for this type of cancer.

This year’s lecture will be delivered by multiple Walkley Award-winning sports journalist Caroline Wilson. Wilson was the chief football writer for The Age for 19 years and was the first woman to cover Australian Rules football on a full-time basis. She is a dual Walkley Award-winner for her coverage of the Essendon Football Club drugs scandal in 2013, and was named the Graham Perkin Australian Journalist of the Year in 2014.

“I'm tremendously honoured. Andrew was an inspirational pillar of Australian journalism and broadcasting and I so look forward to trying to do justice to his legacy at such an important event, and during what is clearly a pivotal period in media history," said Caroline Wilson.

As one of Australia’s most experienced journalists, Wilson’s lecture will cover the role of the media in holding institutions to account and her thoughts on unwinding male domination in the sports arena.
