Wendy Squires is one of Australia’s top journalists and her story is truly inspirational. From a terrible start, being homeless in Year 12, she ended up getting a job as a copygirl at the Herald Sun. From there, and after two long years, she became a cadet and that is when her life took off! From spending years in New York working across most of the Australian magazines, she returned to Australia to start her stellar career with News Ltd and Channel 9.
She talks about the amazing women that were at the helm of the ACP magazine stable, like Lisa Wilkinson and Mia Freedman, at a time when magazines were hugely popular and there were exciting new titles being created all the time. Lachlan Murdoch asked Wendy to start Australian Style and then she went on to work on a variety of titles including Who Weekly and The Australian Woman’s weekly. Her story is so exciting, this is one episode you will not want to miss!
