A year of early starts as a breakfast newsreader at community radio in Perth soon drove Tanya Nolan to the ABC as a radio and television reporter.
Tanya has lived and worked in a variety of locations including Albany in the South of WA and Karratha in the North West. From king waves to category five cyclones, Tanya's career has been marked by covering natural disasters among other stories.
She was one of the first journalists on the ground in Exmouth in 1999 to witness the devastation a Category 5 cyclone can wreak on a town.
Aboriginal issues were central to her reporting round and involved many trips to remote communities to gather first hand accounts of how government policy affects the people it's targeted at. The offer of a job with Radio Current Affairs in Sydney was too good to pass up, and for the past eight years Tanya has reported, presented and produced for all three of the division’s flagship programs.
She is currently Executive Producer of The World Today on a part time basis.
