Paul Ramadge was appointed Editor-in-Chief of The Age and The Sunday Age in September 2008.
He has been a media man throughout his 30-year career, transitioning from a brief stint in a television newsroom to country and regional newspapers before joining The Age as Night Editor in 1996, in time for that year’s federal election. He is a former Editor-in-Chief of The Newcastle Herald and was one of Australia’s youngest daily newspaper editors when appointed to lead a country newspaper in 1983.
At The Age, Paul has held leadership roles in news and product development. He is a former Senior Deputy Editor, Saturday Editor and Executive Editor, and edited the paper’s award-winning coverage of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.
Paul is passionate about The Age, its role in Melbourne and the nation, and about the wonderfully diverse city of Melbourne.
