Libbi Gorr is one of Australia’s most popular broadcasters working in both TV and radio. She burst into the national showbiz narrative with the satirical sports/political character that she created called “Elle McFeast” in her early twenties and has been a trailblazer with her original take on culture and social issues ever since.
With two books, four one woman shows, and engine room status on her diverse TV portfolio, Libbi’s work reflects the universal truths of contemporary Australia. Libbi is acknowledged in the Who's Who of Australian Women and has been the subject of Archibald Prize finalist portraits, in both painting and photography. Her television documentaries have sold around the world and been awarded by the New York Festival of Television.
Libbi’s first book The A-Z of Mummy Manners: An Etiquette Guide for Dealing With Other Children’s Mothers and Assorted Maternal Dilemmas (HarperCollins), combines good old-fashioned etiquette advice with brutal insight of the sisterhood and compelling maternal warmth. The Bedtime Poem for Edible Children (Harpercollins), illustrated by New York Times bestselling author, Bradley Trevor Greive, encapsulates bedtime fun and is a family favourite.
Libbi currently presents a health and wellbeing show for the chronically flawed and eternally optimistic on ABC Radio Melbourne. She also is a guest reporter for the ABC Flagship current affairs program 7.30, plus sometime columnist for The Melbourne Age and the Selector Wine magazine.
Libbi is working on an unfinished screenplay and two contemporary comedy drama series that are in development. She is a founding member of the AFLW Advisory Group for the Australian Football League female competition.
Libbi lives in Melbourne with her two children and long term partner.
