Close your eyes and picture the typical TV news journalist. What do they look like? For most networks in Australia, the archetype leans towards Anglo-Australians, with most interviewed experts being older males. This is a far cry from Australian society where close to half the population were born overseas, or have overseas-born parents. If we are to better represent the many viewpoints and experiences of people who call this country home, we need more diversity in our media.
