Broadcaster John Stanley named Wollondilly Australia Day ambassador

Broadcaster John Stanley has been announced as the 2022 Australia Day Ambassador for Wollondilly.

Stanley is a journalist with the Macquarie Radio network, currently co-hosting the weekend edition on Saturday and Sunday afternoon as well as filling in for radio star Ray Hadley and other weekday shows across the year.

For 30 years Stanley has hosted prime time talk shows on radio 2UE, and prior to that he was the 2GB Macquarie chief political correspondent in Canberra.

He is a regular panellist on the ABC Sunday morning sport show Offsiders, and until recently was a member of journalism’s Walkley awards advisory board.

Born in Sydney and living in the inner west with his wife and son, he is a dedicated member of the St George Illawarra Dragons and has recently embraced the GWS Giants in the AFL.

“Council and the community would like to welcome Mr John Stanley as our Wollondilly Australia Day Ambassador for 2022,” says Wollondilly Mayor Matt Gould.

“I looking forward to hearing him speak on Australia Day in January as he shares his experiences and insights as a long term broadcaster.”

Wollondilly’s Australia Day celebrations are planned to go ahead in a more traditional format in January 2022.

The last two years bushfires and pandemic restrictions had a major impact on Australia Day.
