New reporter Alex Bathman


Alexandra (Alex) Bathman has recently joined the McPherson Media Group as a feature writer and Country News reporter.

Alex began her journalism career with the group at the Riverine Herald earlier this year after completing her Bachelor of Journalism at Monash University.

Alex grew up on a dairy farm at Tatura before moving to Melbourne for her studies.

During this time she had stories published with the Sydney Morning Herald online and The Age online.

She completed work placements at Channel Nine’s A Current Affair program and Today, with WIN News in Shepparton, the Business Spectator in Melbourne and was a casual video journalist for Southern Cross Ten’s Weeknights program.

Alex has also been a part of the Harvard-run World Model UN (WorldMUN) the largest student conference in the world. For WorldMUN, she travelled to Canada in 2012 and assisted her student delegation in winning the bid to host the event in Melbourne, 2013.

Although she loved living in Melbourne, Alex is happy to be back in the region with her family.

She is excited to write stories important to the Goulburn Valley and believes that everyone has a story.

She can be contacted by phoning 58203162.
