Questions should be sent to Angela Pippos.
Everything Angela does she does with passion and flair earning her the nickname “pocket rocket”. Whether in front of the camera, a radio microphone or a live audience Angela is always entertaining.
The petite and lively Pippos left her native South Australia in 1997 to pursue a sports journalism career in Melbourne after completing an Honours degree in politics from the University of Adelaide. Her decision to come to Melbourne was the first of many twists in her career.
During her 14 years with the ABC Angela worked as a researcher on the 7.30 Report and reporter for the 7pm News but she’s best known for anchoring the sports segment on the ABC TV News in Victoria Monday to Friday and later on weekends. Angela takes great pride in her presentation and was crowned Victoria’s best and clearest TV sports presenter five times.
2007 was an eventful year for Angela. She was approached by the ALP to stand for the state seat of Williamstown vacated by former Premier Steve Bracks. Amid a storm of controversy she declined the offer.
Searching for a new challenge Angela walked away from the ABC in 2007 and went where no woman in Melbourne has dared go – the testosterone-charged world of breakfast sports radio. Angela was the first woman to co-host Sport 927’s breakfast program, a position she held for two years alongside 1990 Collingwood premiership player Michael Christian.
Angela has appeared on Network Ten’s Before the Game, TAC Cup Future Stars on the Nine Network and The Back Page on Fox Sports.
Angela is now enjoying the freedom and diversity of freelancing.
Angela is a sought-after MC and public speaker and divides her time between the corporate, sporting, community and education sectors. She works for Siemens facilitating events and is the host of the RACV Club’s Remarkable Women Series.
Angela writes sharp, witty, thought-provoking columns for The New Daily and you can hear her on 774 ABC Melbourne and 891 ABC Adelaide.
Angela’s first book, The Goddess Advantage – One Year in the Life of a Football Worshipper was shortlisted for the Colin Roderick Award for Australian Literature. It loosely follows her life during the 2005 AFL season. It’s as much about love, loyalty, stuffed tomatoes and Greek mythology as it is about Australian Rules football.
Angela has just released her second book – Breaking The Mould: Taking a Hammer to Sexism in Sport.
In February 2017, her documentary about the rise of women in football, League Of Her Own, screened nationally on the Seven Network.
In 2013 she produced her first feature film, The Day of the Broken.
Angela is a proud ambassador of the Adelaide Football Club.
The owl in Angela’s coat of arms is the symbol of Goddess Athena, her middle name. (Athena that is, not the goddess part which Angela says was surely an oversight by her parents.)

Demetra Giannakopoulos – Chair of the NAWIC Awards Committee
“Thank you Angela for helping make the Women in PR Charity Lunch such a huge success. Your sparkling repartee and wit (not to mention your wonderful shoes) was outstanding. You kept everyone in stitches – even the men in the audience. It was a pleasure to work with you and look forward to doing so again.”
Amanda Dale – ED, Public Relations Institute of Australia, Victoria
“Angela Pippos is not just hot but she’s also a bloody great MC, she researches, she adlibs and speaks clearly and usually has all the verbs and nouns in the right place – I think it must be her experience on the ABC. She is funny, has a great laugh and you’d use her every time if you could. She’s that good. Use her. I do.”
Stuart Gregor – Liquid Ideas
“As a prominent journalist, author and presenter well-known to the Melbourne audience, Angela was the perfect choice to take the role of MC at National Breast and Ovarian Cancer’s inaugural Pink Ribbon Lunch. Angela’s stewardship of the program, including keynote speakers Therese Rein and actor and author William McInnes, was conducted with warmth and professionalism.”
Jane Salisbury – NBOCC
“Angela was the MC for the Australian Sports Commission media call to launch the All Cultures website. Angela was perfect for this role given her Greek heritage as well as her passion and knowledge of sport. Angela was very well presented and made sure the event was conducted according to plan. The ASC will certainly use Angela again to MC an event.”
Melinda Turner – Australian Sports Commission
“Angela Pippos has been in my sporting consciousness since the days when she eloquently presented the sports news on ABCTV. In the last three years or so I have come to know Angela more than as just a screen presence, Crows fanatic and acclaimed author. My encounters with her have shown a quick wit and ready ability to come to grips with the intricacies and intrigues of any number of sport or sport related situations, events and incidents. Angela has an easy and engaging ability to make friends and influence people and I have no doubt has secured her spot in the sports world well beyond just the footy.”
Margot Foster – Lawyer, 1984 Olympic Bronze medallist, former board member, Australian Sports Commission
“Working with Angela was very enjoyable as she is extremely professional and easy to work with. She has a sharp, clever and witty sense of humour which endears her to audiences of all types. I have no hesitation in recommending Angela.”
Gerard Doherty – President, Shared Tables
“Angela Pippos served as Master of Ceremonies for an event conducted by the Cyprus Community of Melbourne and Victoria in honour of Winter Olympic Gold Medallist, Lydia Lassila. Angela showed herself to be the consummate professional prior, during and after the event. From detailed preparations to meet the expectations of the host, to well-honed public presentation skills to spontaneity in communicating with the wider audience, Angela exerted complete control from start to finish.”
