Jacqueline Maddock is an Australian multimedia journalist with a decade of experience in reporting, presenting and producing news.
Jacqueline is a big fan of new media and believes technology changes the way we tell stories, but not the art of storytelling.
Currently working with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) in Queensland, she grew up in Melbourne, and Wangaratta, in country Victoria, but has spent the majority of her professional life in Sydney.
A self confessed Sinophile, Jacqueline has lived in Beijing and worked for China Central Television, as host of Asian Business program ‘BizAsia'. While in Beijing, she freelanced for the Fox Business Network, providing live share market reports from Beijing to New York.
The majority of Jacqueline's experience has been focused on business, economics and finance. She spearheaded Network Ten’s coverage of the Global Financial Crisis in 2008 as its Business Editor, and wrote, produced and presented a daily financial news segment on the flagship evening bulletin.
Jacqueline also spent two years as a political correspondent from Australia's national parliament, in Canberra, for Network Ten. She started out in network news as a segment producer on the Australian version of Meet the Press, during the Howard government era. She has also spent time in the role of finance reporter for the Commonwealth Bank, providing share market commentary for both television and radio outlets.
Jacqueline plans to continue travelling the world and telling stories. She imagines herself retiring in New Orleans, to be constantly surrounded by soul music.
