James Knight 

G'day. I was raised in Gunnedah, country NSW. I began my media career as a radio journalist in another bush town, Dubbo, in 1988. Since then I've been incredibly lucky to have worked in many far-flung places across the world. Time and again my experiences remind me that the people make the place;  this defines my work ethos. My colleagues and I feel privileged to meet people, listen to them, and be trusted by them to tell their stories responsibly.

Smiles, James
