A great story about Ian Chappell:

South Australia were playing at the Gabba against Queensland once. As we were walking out onto the field, Chappelli brushed past one of our opening bowlers, Andrew Sincock, who was blow-drying his hair in front of the mirror near the dressing-room door. Chappelli sidled up to me and said:

“Mate, I want you to open the bowling. Come into the wind after Fang’s [Wayne Prior] first over.”


“No bastard who blow-dries his hair just as we are about to take the field is going to open the bowling in any team I lead.”

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
