Tiffany Cherry is one of Australia’s most well known female sports broadcasters. Currently presenting on Foxtel and Sky News Australia, Tiffany has spent 17 years in the media, building up her credentials and developing her written communication skills, interviewing techniques and reporting abilities to the highest of standards.
Tiffany’s journalism career began in 1993 as a regular feature writer for Australian Runner Magazine. It was in 1997, when Tiffany landed her first role on television as a reporter for Channel Seven’s Talking Footy and during that time she also worked as a football reporter for 3AW; and subsequently over the next three years as a writer for The Age and Herald Sun in Melbourne; reporter for Channel Ten’s Sports Tonight and the Ten Nightly News in Sydney; Seven News in Melbourne and CNN World Report based out of Atlanta, Georgia.
In 2001 Tiffany was one of the first employed at Fox Footy and was with the channel for the next five years. She was the first female AFL boundary rider and worked around Australia for the Fox Footy coverage. Tiffany was also the News Presenter on White Line Fever with Clinton Grybus and produced and presented her own weekly segment on injuries in the game.
In 2004, Tiffany realised her passion for documentary making, producing an award-winning special on Aussie rules football in the USA and has thus far produced seven documentaries around the world.
In May 2007, Tiffany was chosen by the Nine Network to be the sports presenter on Mick Molloy’s new national show, The Nation. In addition, Tiffany produced and launched her own radio talkback show The Hen House on SEN1116, which she co-hosted with Olympic swimming champion Giaan Rooney and world champion netballer Eloise Southby-Halbish. Tiffany also joined the talkback sports station’s AFL broadcast team as boundary rider for their coveted Friday night games.
2008 saw Tiffany relocate to the USA and work with ESPN where she covered the NFL, NBA, Wimbledon, Australian Open, ESPY awards, the AFL and NRL Grand Finals, the Layne Beachley Surf Classic, Volvo Around the World Ocean race and the PGA tour. Tiffany has also reported on the Kentucky Derby, NHL, MLB, EPL, IPL and the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics – two of six Olympic Games she has both attended and reported from.
2010 was a significant year for Tiffany as she moved back to Melbourne and rejoined Foxtel as co-presenter with Steve Liebamnn for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games as well as hosting the New Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games. In 2011 Tiffany began hosting her own television sports show, Flash Footy for Fox Sports, a weekly half hour indigenous and multicultural AFL show featuring stars Michael O’Loughlin, David Wirrpanda, Andrew McLeod and Kevin Sheedy.
Tiffany’s passion for sport extends beyond that of most journalists. In her early days, Tiffany was ranked in the top eight in Australia in 400m hurdles, trained with Olympic gold medalist Cathy Freeman and also represented Australia at the 1999 World Triathlon Championships in Montreal. She is also a trained physiotherapist and masseuse, and was the physiotherapist for the Richmond Football Club for three years.
Whether as a sports broadcaster, MC, keynote speaker or panel member – in front of the corporate world, schools or sporting clubs – Tiffany is a natural, engaging master of ceremonies, speaker and presenter who can’t help but impress.
