Michael Pascoe

Michael Pascoe is one of Australia’s most respected and experienced finance and economics commentators with 35 years in newspaper, broadcast and on-line journalism.

Perhaps best known for his 18 years as the Nine Network’s Finance Editor, Michael now is Associate Editor of Alan Kohler’s EurekaReport.com.au, Contributing Editor for the Sydney Morning Herald and Age BusinessDay.com.au on-line business sections, contributes to Channel 7’s Sunrise and news programs, is a weekly finance columnist for Yahoo7 and is in demand an acclaimed conference speaker, MC and facilitator, bringing rare humour and plain language to the dismal science.

Michael was born and educated in Queensland, starting his career with The Courier-Mail before working in Hong Kong for three years. He joined the Australian Financial Review in Sydney upon returning to Australia and then virtually invented specialist finance journalism in commercial broadcasting – first with the Macquarie Radio network, then with Channel 9.

Michael has four sons, maintains a love of Rugby Union, a dislike of gardening and what he calls “an outlook of optimistic scepticism”.
