Alan Oakley is Editor, National Features, for News Ltd.
He is a former editor of The Sydney Morning Herald, Herald Sun, Sunday Telegraph, Sunday Age and Newcastle Herald. This makes him a serial editor.
He didn’t go to university, began his career in journalism aged 17 on the Leighton Buzzard Gazette in England and in 1985, he left the Daily Express in Manchester and came to Australia ostensibly “for a couple of years.” He stayed and took out citizenship the day the tall ships came into Sydney harbour to mark the bicentenary in 1988.
He has dual British-Australian nationality and therefore hasn’t lost an Ashes series in 21 years.
