Nine Network Investigations Editor Kelvin Bissett believes there is a public right to know. And he especially wants to know what it is that the politicians and their bureaucrats desperately want to keep secret. Reportage based on spin and strategic leaks are for others - Kelvin’s desire is to reveal the truth and untold stories behind government decision making.
After a brief cadetship with Cumberland Newspapers, Kelvin joined the Daily Mirror in 1990 and after its closure, the Daily Telegraph. With the election of the Carr Government in 1995, Kelvin spent a marathon seven-year stint on the NSW Parliament press gallery covering transport, education, health and legal reform. He tried his hand at a number of senior production roles and Business Editor before being appointed in 2004 to pioneer the newspaper’s Freedom of Information investigation program. Kelvin joined the Nine Network’s news team in March 2009.
He lives on Sydney’s North Shore with his adored wife Didi and their children Jemima and Joseph.
