    Andrew Geoghegan - Host of JDRF T1D Tune In

    Andrew Geoghegan - Host of JDRF T1D Tune In

    Host of the T1D Tune In podcast series, Andrew Geoghegan, talks about his connection to T1D. 

    Two-time Walkley Award winner Andrew Geoghegan is a journalist and experienced live television interviewer and host. 

    Andrew was the ABC's Africa correspondent for four and a half years, covering the continent's major stories such as the lawlessness of Somalia and the conflict in Darfur. He worked undercover in Zimbabwe on many occasions, despite being banned from reporting there. He exposed the failure of both the Mugabe Government and United Nations in preventing the cholera outbreak. The story won a Walkley Award and a UN Correspondents Association medal.

    Andrew's 2009 investigation of the international adoption business in Ethiopia was also recognised with a Walkley Award and led to a change in adoption practices. His work has also been acknowledged with UN Australia Media Peace awards.

    Andrew fell into broadcasting when he spent his spare time dabbling at the university radio station while completing an Urban Planning degree. His hobby led to a cadetship at the ABC in Perth.

    He's worked as a journalist in Europe and Asia covering some of the world's major news events and he hosted a daily finance program for Bloomberg Television. At the ABC, Andrew has reported for Lateline, Inside Business and 7.30. He was also the finance correspondent for ABC radio current affairs.
