Dan Bourchier

Dan Bourchier presents ABC Canberra’s 7pm News bulletin and is a regular on radio, tv, and major events coverage across the ABC.

Dan grew up in the outback Northern Territory mining town of Tennant Creek and began reporting for the local newspaper when he was 14, going on to work for the NT News. His younger years in Tennant Creek, together with his coastal Victorian Aboriginal heritage, have instilled in him a deep interest in the culture, history and social justice issues of Australia’s First Nation people.

From 2010 he was with National Indigenous Television (NITV) in Sydney and Canberra before moving to Darwin in 2012 to join Sky News as its NT bureau chief. In that role, he covered stories including the fourth inquest into the death of Azaria Chamberlain, US President Barack Obama’s visit to the Top End and the subsequent deployment of US Marines to the Territory. He was the first to announce the rolling of NT Chief Minister Terry Mills, breaking the news on-air while the Cabinet was still in discussion. Most recently he was Political Reporter and National Indigenous Affairs Correspondent for Sky News based in Canberra.
