The annnouncement:

Publishers Australia is delighted to announce that media personality Andrew Daddo will MC at this year’s Magazine Week conference.

Confirming his appearance, Daddo said: “I’m really looking forward to being part of the conference. I love magazines, always have and always will. They’re such an integral part of our lives, it’s easy to forget how significant they are.

“It’s not just about the information they convey; they’re our companions and remain the most reliable form of entertainment, in print, in digital, wherever we are. It’s going to be a fun couple of days, I look forward to meeting Australia’s publishers.”

Andrew will have the task of corralling and moderating some of the biggest personalities in Australia’s publishing industry:

  • Matthew Stanton, CEO, ACP Magazines and Chairman, MPA
  • Nicole Sheffield, CEO, NewsLifeMedia
  • Geoff Hird, Publisher, Westwick-Farrow Media and Chairman, PA
  • Ash Hunter, CEO, Hunter5 Publishing
  • Chris Wirasinha of Pedestrian.tv

As well as being a household name for his years with ABC Radio, Beijing and Sydney Olympics presentations and a variety of popular TV shows, Andrew is a regular contributor to Australian Golf Digest and has written for Fly Fishing Annual, Essential Kids, The Hoopla and others. In addition, he says he has ‘enjoyed’ the deadline of a weekly column with the Sydney Morning Herald.

Andrew is also an accomplished author, having written over 20 best selling books for all ages – picture and chapter books, short story collections, young adult novels and adult non-fiction. Publishers will be pleased to learn that he is working hard on the next generation of magazine readers: he has spoken to hundreds of thousands of school children over the past decade, promoting the importance of literacy.
