Chris Masters PSM is one of Australia’s best-known and most influential investigative journalists.

His 1987 exposure of corruption in Queensland led to a public inquiry and reform. His 1983 report on corruption in Rugby league and in the NSW judiciary led to a Royal Commission and judicial reform. His fearless pursuit of the truth has seen him win five Walkleys for his journalism over five decades.

Masters spent extended periods embedded with Australian forces, including special forces, during Australia’s longest war in Afghanistan, and he is respected for the depth of his knowledge of the Australian Army.
