After three decades of working in the fiercely competitive world of Australian television, Journalist Ian Hyslop reflects on a news career that spanned the globe, reporting on major breaking stories that shaped a generation.

From a cadetship with the ABC in the 1970s to his time as a foreign correspondent in the United States and Asia, Hyslop interviewed celebrities, politicians and newsmakers about their time in the headlines.

‘Sloppy’ to his colleagues, Ian was Channel 7’s correspondent in Los Angeles in the 1980s, reporting on everything from the antics of Hollywood legends to the power plays of American politicians.Witness the world through Ian’s eyes as he finds himself at Cape Canaveral, grappling with the aftermath of the Challenger disaster, and aboard the ‘press plane’ during the 1988 Presidential campaign, where he somehow managed to keep up with George Bush and avoid a brush with death.

Feel the ground shake beneath your feet as Ian recounts his time in San Francisco covering one of America’s most powerful earthquakes, and a threat to his own mortality in Taipei during another quake that claimed 2000 lives. Not so Sloppy chronicles a career in journalism and business that started with a small boy’s pledge to his parents, “When I grow up I’m going to be a journalist!”
