7News Freedom of Information Editor Alison Sandy

Alison Sandy began her career in the media after graduating with a degree in journalism from the Queensland University of Technology in 1998.

She lodged her first Freedom of Information application that same year while working at the Portland Observer in Victoria.

Alison is a fierce advocate of the media’s role in holding governments and its representatives to account. She has successfully fought and won several appeals for access to documents under FOI laws and uncovered details that have contributed to decisions to change legislation.

They include the introduction of GPS trackers on paedophiles and other dangerous sex offenders released in Queensland after the extent of breaches by those living in the community was revealed.

Her previous roles include Right to Information Editor at The Courier-Mail in Brisbane and Adelaide’s Sunday Mail political reporter.

Alison started at the Seven Network in May, 2014.
