Rachel Brown Career

Rachael began her career as an ABC cadet in Melbourne in 2002. She recalls the pivotal moment six years ago, when she was a 16-year-old work-experience student and was thrown out of the car with a tape recorder in the pouring rain, and told to find a Minister she’d never heard of. She finally located a crowd, determined the man in the midst was her target, and stood on tiptoe, soaked to the bone, heart beating, and certainly this was the life for her.

Rachael helped oversee the ABC’s Gippsland bureau in Sale, eastern Victoria, after learning the ropes during her cadetship. It was here that the girl from Essendon learned how to dig for stories, met colorful characters who would become lifelong friends, and learned the region’s important lessons: milk price hikes are a good thing, and you can’t get beers at the Lakes Entrance (sand) Bar, as her mentor noted on her farewell card.

Rachael oversaw the Victorian Courts for 18 months in Melbourne, covering major topics including as terrorist trials and Melbourne’s gangland war. She earned multiple legal reporting honors for her work, including the Walkley Award for Best Radio Current Affairs Report in 2008 for a breaking story about the Victorian Medical Practitioners Board’s incompetence. She’d discovered that a Victorian dermatologist had been accused of rape by the Board.

She gained the trust of the ladies who were later molested, and she kept the story a secret for a year to avoid jeopardizing their case. Rachael has been stationed in London since 2008, when she joined the flagship national Radio Current Affairs programs AM, PM, and The World Today. Since then, she’s worked for Insiders and, most recently, The 7:30 Report. In 2009, Rachael’s most difficult assignment was covering Victoria’s Black Saturday Bushfires and its devastation.
