Rachel Hancock | The Courier-Mail Deputy Editor

2017 SPEAKER

Described as one of News Corp’s brightest editors, Rachel Hancock rose through the ranks at Adelaide’s Sunday Mail and The Advertiser to become the first female Editor of one of Australia’s most successful tabloids, the NT News.

Her fierce leadership saw not only crocs and witty headlines splashed across the front pages, but also Walkley Award-winning investigative journalism and strong campaigns, including one which drove petrol prices down for Territorians.

After immersing herself in Territory life, Rachel moved to Brisbane last year to take up a role as the Deputy Editor of The Courier-Mail and Sunday Mail.

Rachel spends most of her spare time running after her two boys, aged 8 and 13.
