Discover the Murky underworld of Sydney at this exclusive EO Sydney Event.
Kate McClymont of the Sydney Morning Herald has been one of Australia’s top investigative
reporters since the early 1990s. Her speciality is uncovering corruption, cronyism and
nepotism in union, sporting and political circles.
She exposed the salary cap scandal at the Canterbury Bulldogs. Other revelations led to a
five-year jail term for former Labor MP Eddie Obeid. National ALP president Michael
Williamson was forced off the party’s national executive after McClymont’s investigation
into the Health Services Union’s East branch.
Colleagues admire her fearlessness in the face of threats to her safety and her ability to pry information from reluctant sources. She won eight Walkleys, the last being for Dyson Heydon in 2020.
