Chris Masters

Journalist and author


Chris Masters was one of Australia’s best-known, most successful, and most influential investigative journalists in the second half of the 20th century.   

His work changed Australia for the better. His 1987 exposure of corruption in Queensland led to a public inquiry and reform. His 1983 report on corruption in Rugby league and in the NSW judiciary led to a Royal Commission and judicial reform. In 1985, he exposed the French Government’s involvement in the sinking of the Greenpeace boat Rainbow Warrior.  

Over 25 years, he has been awarded five Walkleys and filed 100 investigative reports, mostly for Four Corners.
