After an exciting start to his journalism career with Channel 7 in Sydney, Australia in 1996, Phillip Nyakpo worked for two decades as a Broadcast Journalist in various roles including as a reporter, current affairs talk show host and News Editor for Skyy Media which operates the first private Radio and TV station in Ghana’s Western Region.
He was Western Region’s correspondent for Joy FM in Accra, and also a Stringer for the BBC in London, where he reported on Ghana’s gradual transition from military rule to democracy in the late 1990s to early 2000s.
He has interviewed three African Heads of State, Diplomats and high level officials across three continents.
After a stint with the BBC World Service in England, Phillip moved to Australia in early 2007 and had a brief engagement with ABC TV in Perth as a Researcher and assistant Producer. He has called Australia home ever since and lives in Perth with his family.
