Meet John Kerrison

I’m John Kerrison, the producer and presenter of Out in Sydney.

For a decade I honed skills as a live broadcast journalist and news anchor. I reported on federal politics and courts for the Nine Network. I moved to Sky News, Australia where I became Sydney reporter and presented Business Night, Summer Money and Technology Behind Business.

From 2001 until 2005 I fronted the live Prime News bulletin in the central west. It was an important role for a passionate community that valued local news.

I reported for the ABC in Adelaide for three years, much of which was spent reporting for the current affairs program Stateline.

In 2009, I completed a Masters in Organisational Communication at Charles Sturt University in Bathurst.

I’m a professional speaker on the divergence between newsroom technologies and organisational communications. I spoke on social media and politics at the event hosted by The ABC at Ultimo in 2009. In 2013 I addressed the Walkley Foundation annual conference on ‘being a social media star’.

Out in Sydney is a passion project dedicated to LGBTQ radio which was approved by my current employer, the NSW public service. I currently manage Social Media at the agency level of the NSW Government. There is no likely or perceived conflict of interest related to Out in Sydney. The podcast now live on iTunes is not currently a revenue generating project.
