For more than 30 years Greg Cary was recognised as one of Queensland's most respected broadcasters. He hosted a variety of programs on 4BC and for a decade was a regular member of the Sunrise program on Channel 7 where his friendly and considered approach to all subject matter won a wide audience.
He has spoken with, and come to know, every Prime Minister since (and including) Gough Whitlam and has interviewed all of Australia’s great athletes over the last 30 years.
For the five years (2008-2013) before stepping out of the spotlight Greg hosted a current affairs program that was networked across Queensland and helped shape opinion on a variety of issues. He has championed many causes and, in an increasingly partisan media world, remains trusted by all sides.
In his radio career, Greg was the only person to have been a finalist in national awards for both sport and current affairs, whilst winning the best Program Director award (in 2006).
His media life began as a cadet journalist at the (now defunct) Sun newspaper in Sydney before moving into radio. He is well placed to talk about the evolving nature of media and the impact of that change on the wider community.
Greg is a voracious reader and book reviewer, loves sport and is a keen surfer and golfer (where his passion somewhat outweighs his skill).
His memoir “An Absence Of Certainty” - which addresses many issues in the world of politics and sport - has sold well in Australia and overseas, whilst a just completed novel will be published in the new year.
