Tiffany Cherry is a sports broadcasting pioneer who paved the way for Australian female media presenters in the world of sport.

Tiff has had a remarkable career, firstly as a professional athlete and a physiotherapist with Richmond in the AFL, before kicking off an enviable broadcasting career covering the NFL SuperBowl, the Olympics, NBA Finals, Wimbledon and more, as well as becoming a household name in AFL media.

Bear in mind, this was a time when there were few female sports broadcasters. Getting a sports media gig, and earning respect, required a huge amount of ambition and resilience.

But, when breaking new ground there are significant challenges, including sexism, relationships and mental health.

Tiff also talks about her unique pathway to becoming a single mum, and having to re-start her career pretty much from scratch, despite her experience and accomplishments.

She also shares strong views on the evolution of women in sport and why there’s still a long way to go.
