Carol’s radio career has spanned 20 years around Australia working for both commercial broadcasters, and since 2001 the ABC. Carol is a Walkley Award-winning journalist, was the inaugural winner of the NSW Cancer Council award for Excellence in Reporting, and awarded the 2007 Premier’s Public Sector Awards medal. She is married to a research physicist, mother of two children, and has a keen interest in medical research, particularly pertaining to congenital heart disease.
Carol is a member of the Hunter Medical Research Institute Foundation. She also likes smelly cheeses, has a deep and abiding love for crunchy whitebait, has a very bad potty-mouth and thoroughly enjoys being over-connected. She considers her three hours on air at the ABC each day to be therapy. Of a sort. Carol does, however, believe in using her evil powers for good. View profile
