Everything Angela does she does with passion and flair. 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 ABC TV 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 ABC TV News in Victoria for almost a decade.
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 is now enjoying the freedom and diversity of freelancing.
In 2017, Angela released her second book, BREAKING THE MOULD Taking a Hammer to Sexism in Sport. On its third reprint, BREAKING THE MOULD celebrates the rise of women in sport and was chosen for the Prime Minister’s Summer Reading List!
Angela is a highly sought-after MC and public speaker and divides her time between the corporate, sporting, community and education sectors. She’s a tireless campaigner for gender equality in sport and society, and in 2018 she was a joint winner of VicHealth’s inaugural award for outstanding reporting of women’s sport.
In 2017, her documentary about the history-making journey for women in Australian football, League Of Her Own, screened nationally on the Seven Network. Angela’s second documentary about the inaugural AFLW season, Heroes, aired on the ABC. Her third documentary is currently in development thanks to Screen Australia.
Last year Angela returned to the ABC as co-host of Saturday Grandstand on ABC Radio alongside Anthony “Lehmo” Lehmann.
Angela is a proud ambassador of the Adelaide Football Club.

“Superbly hosted by @angelapippos as usual.”
Peter Filopoulos – CEO Football Victoria
“Angela was a joint winner of VicHealth’s inaugural award for outstanding reporting of women’s sport in 2018 – testament to her many years as a sports journalist, presenter, author and documentary-maker and how influential this work has been in promoting gender equality in sport.”
“We have worked with Angela across many different events over the last few years. She is a fantastic MC, very easy to work with and always creates a professional and dynamic atmosphere on stage.”
“Ange has been a very popular and long standing host of our traditional ‘Women in Cricket’ Test Breakfast held on the second day of the Boxing Day Test match each year. Ange’s bubbly and professional presentation is always a feature of the breakfast and her interviews with guests are conducted in a very engaging and insightful manner while regularly laced with a good deal of humour. She also develops great rapport with the audience and our members always know they’re in for a good time with Ange controlling the lectern.”
