Robert Gottliebsen

1941 -

Gottliebsen pioneered many aspects of business journalism in Australia. He was the first daily business columnist as Chanticleer in The Australian Financial Review and popularised regular business commentary on ABC TV news and on morning radio. He founded Australia’s first weekly business magazine, Business Review Weekly, as well as Personal Investment magazine. Then, at an age when most journalists are thinking of retirement, Gottliebsen became one of the three founding investors and commentators for Australia’s first successful online business news and commentary site, Business Spectator. In 1977, Gottliebsen was the second Graham Perkin Australian Journalist of the Year, having won a Walkley the year before.
