Leigh Sales

Until 2011, Leigh Sales anchored the prestigious Lateline program, interviewing major figures including Hillary Clinton, Tony Blair and Henry Kissinger.

From 2001 to 2005, she was the ABC's Washington Correspondent, covering stories including the aftermath of September 11, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the 2004 Presidential election and Hurricane Katrina. From 2006 to 2008, Leigh was the ABC's National Security Correspondent, before joining Lateline.

In 2005, Leigh won a Walkley Award, Australia's highest journalism honour, for her coverage of Guantanamo Bay and the case of David Hicks. Her subsequent book, Detainee 002, was shortlisted for the 2008 Victorian Premier's Literary Prize and won the 2007 George Munster award for independent journalism.
