Phil Williams: ACT

Philip Williams career at the ABC spanned 40 years. He is probably best known for his international roles which have included Europe, London and Tokyo correspondent, as well as the ABC’s chief foreign correspondent from 2016 until his ‘retirement’ in 2021, though from time-to-time he continues to work for the ABC. However, Philip’s distinguished career also includes a range of other roles. For many years he travelled Australia reporting for Countrywide, he was a founding producer with Australian Story, and has reported for various ABC TV programs including as Canberra reporter for The 7:30 Report and presenter of the Canberra edition of Stateline. He has also worked as chief political correspondent for ABC’s national radio current affairs programs and as ABC’s diplomatic and defence correspondent.
