About Jeff Sly
Jeff Sly has been a journalist for more than quarter of a century.
He spent the first part of his career working in radio in Adelaide, but regional television news has been his calling and his passion for most of his life.
The opportunity to write the story of Peter Learmonth’s remarkable journey came completely by chance.
Jeff’s daughter Rebecca approached Peter to tell part of his history for a school project, and that cemented the connection.
The collaboration took almost exactly 12 months of meetings, musings and anecdotes.
Jeff now runs his own media consultancy in Ballarat, called Slymedia.
