Libbi Gorr is a funny, bold and beautiful storyteller who has captured the imagination of Australia over many years with her unique and innovative brand of insight, authenticity and humour.
Her work has been seen as a guest reporter on ABC 7.30, ABC News Breakfast with a Remote Communities project, ABC International Women’s Day Specials as Creator, Producer and Host and of course across her Huge, ground breaking and award winning Elle McFeast Portfolio in the 1990’s on ABC TV, with a focus on sport, politics social issues and wellbeing – with every single program made with heart, humour and insight.
Libbi also is a devoted family person, with a partner and two children. For the last 10 years she was a devoted team member of the ABC Radio Melbourne and Victoria broadcast team with ABC Local Radio; for the last three years Lib presented the Saturday and Sunday morning programs across Melbourne and the State.
This was particularly challenging during Victoria’s intense COVID Lockdown experience, but Libbi’s natural empathy, creativity and determination to keep audiences buoyant pushed her skills to the limit and garnered huge audience support.
In December 2021, Libbi announced that she was relinquishing her position at ABC Radio Melbourne and Victoria to have ‘another crack’ and create the next chapter in her broad and self imagined career. Scary as it is, Libbi has emerged from Victoria’s incredibly challenging COVID 19 experience determined to reinvigorate her own creative, journalistic and professional passions and set her own boundaries for what she can achieve. It’s brave and bold to live your own story, but she’s walking the talk!
