Indira Naidoo is one of Australia’s most popular broadcasters. She achieved national prominence as the host of the ABC’s Late Edition nightly news and as the anchor of SBS Television’s award-winning late night news service, World News Tonight. Naidoo developed a following for her less serious appearances on McFeast, Roy and HG’s Club Buggery, Good News Week, The Glasshouse, The Fat, and SBS TV’s Ashes cricket show Under the Grandstand.
She has worked as a media spokesperson and strategist for consumer advocacy group Choice and as a Geneva-based consultant with the United Nations’ trade development arm, the International Trade Centre.
Naidoo writes on food and sustainability issues for The Sydney Morning Herald and Gourmet Traveller magazine, and writes the Saucy Onion food blog. Her first book about urban food farming, The Edible Balcony, was published by Lantern Penguin in October 2011.View Profile
