RMIT University confirms its standing as a global leader in journalism with the addition of Australian journalist and author Helen Trinca.
Ms Trinca has worked as a journalist for over 35 years, with a portfolio boasting the likes of The West Australian, the ABC, The Sydney Morning Herald, and BOSS magazine through The Australian Financial Review.
She is now the managing editor of The Australian newspaper and is a highly-regarded author, having co-written two books Waterfront: The Battle That Changed Australia (2000), which is now a telemovie entitled Bastard Boys, and Better Than Sex: How a Whole Generation Got Hooked on Work (2004).
Dr Antonio Castillo, Program Manager for the Bachelor of Communication (Journalism), said the appointment is a great source of encouragement for the Journalism course at RMIT.
“It is indeed a great achievement to have such a high profile and influential news media professional in our program advisory committee,“ Dr Castillo said.
“Ms Trinca is not only a very well-known journalist, but also a wonderful writer whose intellect will enrich our program.“
Ms Trinca has also recently published the biography Madeleine, exploring the curious life of Sydney-born novelist and expatriate Madeleine St John.
Her appointment is for three years during which time Ms Trinca will deliver lectures, provide industry advice, share ideas on teaching, and guide the next generation of news professionals.
