Portrait of Angela Pippos

Angela Pippos

Angela Pippos is a journalist, television presenter, radio personality, author and MC.

Angela left her native South Australia in 1997 to pursue a sports journalism career with the ABC in Melbourne. She’s best known for anchoring the sports segment on the ABC TV News for almost a decade.

Searching for a new challenge in 2007, Angela ventured where no woman has dared go – the testosterone-charged world of breakfast sports radio.

In 2017 Angela released her second book, Breaking The Mould – Taking A Hammer To Sexism In Sport, and she produced two documentaries about the rise of women in Australian Rules football, League of Her Own (Seven Network) and Heroes (ABC).

Angela’s first book, The Goddess Advantage – One Year in the Life of a Football Worshipper loosely follows her life during the 2005 AFL season. Angela has contributed to a number of publications including The Footy Almanac, It Happened on a Fishing Trip and From the Outer. Her sharp, thought-provoking columns appear in The New Daily.

Angela is a regular contributor to 774 ABC Melbourne, ABC Grandstand and 891 ABC Adelaide. She’s appeared on a number of sports programs including Network Ten’s Before the Game and The Back Page on Fox Sports.

Angela has an Honours degree in Politics from the University of Adelaide.
