Ali Moore

Journalist & Host

Ali Moore brings almost twenty years of journalism experience to the ABC, where she began her career in 1987.

After completing a Bachelor of Arts at Melbourne University, Ali joined the ABC as a graduate cadet, covering the major rounds for news, including finance and politics, before shifting to radio current affairs, reporting for AM, PM and The World Today.

In 1992 she was appointed China Correspondent, based in Beijing. When she returned to Sydney three years later, Ali became the ABC's national Finance Correspondent.

In 1996 Ali moved to the Nine Network to work on the weekly business current affairs program, Business Sunday, first as a reporter, and then, for the past three and a half years, as host of the program.

Over the past decade Ali has interviewed the key decision makers in Australian business and covered the major corporate, economic and market issues in both Australia and around the world.

Her feature stories have focussed on issues as diverse as the uranium debate in Australia and the corporate risks of bird flu, to regular panel discussions of key investment issues. Around the region, Ali has reported from Hong Kong on the Asia financial crisis, Japan on bilateral trade, Thailand on Asia's biggest bankruptcy, and from Indonesia on the jailing of an Australian mining executive.

Now Ali's career has come full circle, returning to the national broadcaster where it all began. In her words, she's "come home" to present Lateline Business, an opportunity seemingly tailor made for her return to the ABC.
