Libby Price


Libby Price has a journalism career spanning 30 years which began with writing articles for the horse magazine, “Hoofs and Horns”.

At 25, she put her passion for horses to one side, and focussed on her career as a broadcaster with the ABC, starting in the rural department and working across radio and television, including as senior reporter for the 7.30 Report and ABC TV News and regularly presenting weekend News and Stateline. 

Libby also worked for six years for Radio Current Affairs, including several years as Melbourne Bureau Chief, reporting for the flagship programs AM, PM and The World Today.

Libby then presented Radio National Drive, Statewide Regional mornings, and then returned to the Rural Department where she presented the Victorian Country Hour for a decade.

Libby’s secret passion has been writing, so she’s delighted to have taken on the role as editor of the Benalla Ensign in June 2014.
