journalist ♦ editor ♦ producer ♦ writer ♦ video maker
I’m Rohan Salmond, a journalist, editor, multimedia producer based in Sydney, NSW.
I specialise writing about the things that affect our society, politics and culture, including the formation of digital communities, LGBTI issues and religion. I’m currently producing ABC RN’s God Forbid. I have previously contributed work to Eureka Street, The Wire and Religion and Ethics Report.
You might remember me from my previous work as cross-platform editor of Journey magazine, the award-winning publication of the Uniting Church Queensland Synod. In the three years I was editor I set out to inspire, provoke and engage the magazine’s 30,000 readers with cutting-edge stories and striking covers to get people talking.
I got my start over ten years ago making digital video including the Week in 60 news digest series on YouTube. I also produced video editorials for Journey magazine. I’ve also moderated the Out Online panel at VidCon Australia.
Community radio has been important to my professional development. I worked as an audio engineer for Yolngu Radio in Darwin, NT. I was also a radio producer for Breakfast and The Wire on 2ser 107.3 in Sydney and volunteered for two years at Juice 107.3 on the Gold Coast, Queensland.
I have a Bachelor of Communications from Griffith University.
