A two-time Walkley Award winner, Speers has been a popular choice to anchor ABC TV’s Sunday morning political discussion program.

The 48-year-old presenter has been at the forefront of political reporting in the last year, including hosting election debates in 2007, 2010 and in 2013. 

In 2020 Speers published ‘On Mutiny’ which dealt with how the Liberal Party sought to replace Malcolm Turnbull with Scott Morrison as Prime Minister.
