hosted by Ray Martin AM

Ray Martin began his media career as a cadet journalist with the ABC in August 1965. His early years were spent reporting from Sydney, Perth and Canberra before his first overseas assignments took him to India and Africa. In 1969, Ray was appointed the ABC’s North American Correspondent based in New York  and spent almost a decade reporting for the  ABC’s major news and current affairs programs,  both on television with “This Day Tonight” and “Four Corners” and radio. When the Nine Network launched its new flagship current affairs program “60 Minutes” on 14 February 1979, Ray joined George Negus and Ian Leslie as a founding reporter. Over the next six years, Ray visited over forty countries and interviewed everyone from Prince Charles to the rock band KISS. He won a handful of prestigious awards for his investigative work, including Reporter of the Year (twice) and Best Public Affairs Report (twice). In February 1985, Ray launched his own daily variety show, “Ray Martin at Midday”. Ray recorded over twelve thousand interviews, featuring almost every contemporary political and pop figure of the time. Ray moved in 1994 from “Midday” into the host’s seat on “A Current Affair”. In 1996, Ray was awarded his fifth Gold Logie Award (tying with top-honoured recipient Graham Kennedy), Australia’s most prestigious television award. He has also won three consecutive People’s Choice top awards, making his career one of the most successful in Australian TV’s forty-plus year history. In addition to his work in television and journalism, Ray been Chairman of the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation, Chairman of The Fred Hollows Foundation and has supported children’s services at Royal North Shore Hospital, and from 1991 through 2000 was a full-term member of the Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation. In 2012, Ray was awarded an Order of Australia for his charity work, especially with indigenous Australians, and for his contribution to journalism.
