Caroline Jones’s career of firsts spanning decades

Bond University student reporter Kate Banville spoke to legend Caroline Jones – Women in Media patron, writer, and broadcaster with a 50-year association with the ABC. To name just two of her achievements, Jones was the first woman reporter on This Day Tonight (1968-72) and the first woman to anchor Four Corners (1972-81), concurrently with broadcasting on ABC Sydney morning radio.

As part of the Women in Media National Conference, Bond University journalism students participate in a pop-up newsroom. Hear this example of their fine work and be inspired by Jones – an official Living Treasure – who talks on a range of topics including her career, the modern news cycle, and “taking to Twitter”.
