She’s one of Australia’s most renowned journalists and interviewers, but Leigh Sales has now swapped places and opened up about her own traumatic past in a deeply honest TV chat. You don’t get to sit around doing a lot of talking but little else. Until 2011, Leigh Sales anchored the prestigious Lateline program, interviewing major figures including Hillary Clinton, Tony Blair and Henry Kissinger. Leigh Sales’ interview with Paul McCartney, including that incredible backstage access, airs tonight on 7.30 on the ABC. Here’s what I know for sure: Leigh Sales is the most high profile political interviewer in the country right now. Yes, Leigh sales is bringing up issues like the labor party because you are unable to give an actual answer that isn’t political spin doctoring and neither journalists like her or the labor party will accept it anymore, we need to act now, not in 10 years plus. She’s always been a well respected and critically acclaimed journalist, but since returning from her second maternity leave earlier this year, she’s been on fire. But she makes clear it’s a work of journalism, not memoir. Host of 7.30 and one of Australia’s most respected political journalists, Leigh Sales, has split from her husband, Phil Willis.
