Katy Katopodis is one of a handful of editors who sets the country's news agenda.
As the group editor-in-chief for the Eyewitness News team, which runs across all Primedia-owned stations as well as their recently launched Eyewitness News website, she leads some of the best broadcast news journalists in the country, keeping abreast of every breaking news story both here and abroad and filling in the blanks for the rest of us.
Katapodis started her career at a Greek community radio station in Bedfordview and was snapped up by Primedia in 1996. Since then, she's interviewed everyone from Muammar Gaddafi to Bill Clinton and was the last journalist to interview ANC stalwart Walter Sisulu before he died.
But it was her clash with the Forum of Black Journalists (FBJ) that placed Katapodis in the news herself. In April last year the Human Rights Commission upheld her complaint against the FBJ for holding an Africans-only news briefing with ANC president Jacob Zuma. Chances are it's not going to be the last time Katapodis makes headlines. -- Tanya Pampalone
