Leigh Hatcher

Broadcast Journalist


Leigh Hatcher is one of Australia’s most respected and experienced broadcast journalists. He has had a career of 40 plus years in radio and television. Leigh’s first and greatest love is radio, which explains his ‘passion for podcasts’.

Leigh has a deep and intimate knowledge of Australian politics – having worked in the Canberra press gallery between 1975-1977 and 1981-1983. He worked at the Seven Network in a range of capacities, including Canberra correspondent, Chief Olympic correspondent and European correspondent. He was also a senior presenter at Sky News for 13 years, as it led the whole emergence of ‘the 24-hour news cycle’.

For the last three years he has worked on ‘the other side’ of media as Director of Public Affairs, now senior consultant for HammondCare.

Leigh has authored three books – including the Australian best-seller I’m Not Crazy, I’m Just a Little Unwell.

Growth Coaching International is delighted to have Leigh producing and presenting this audio series.
