Eliza Blue began her career in journalism as a producer on the summer Breakfast program on the ABC’s Radio National in 2003.
Eliza then worked as producer on a number of programs on Sydney radio, while completing a Bachelor of Arts Degree at Sydney University, majoring in History and Politics. After that, while studying for a Masters in Political Science, she worked at the Sydney bureau of a Japanese news wire service, Kyodo News.
Joining the ABC in 2007, she was posted to Hobart. In February 2008, Eliza swapped the cold Tassie climate for a posting in Karratha in WA’s Pilbara region where she reported on the resources industry at ground level, visiting mine sites and travelling around a region that produces 40 per cent of Australia’s exports.
She then brought her first-hand knowledge of the resources industry to Perth to begin work as business reporter for ABC TV, Radio and online news.
