Allan Clarke

Investigative Journalist
Growing up in the small town of Bourke in western New South Wales, Muruwari man Allan Clarke became fascinated with the media at a very early age. Watching negative reports on his hometown and the local Aboriginal community through mainstream media, he found it hard to reconcile his perception of his community against the way it was being portrayed. Allan has worked in television and online for several media outlets, including, the ABC, SBS and BuzzFeed and is currently an investigative journalist with NITV and the host of NITV’s flagship news and current affairs program The Point. Prior to that, Allan shaped and moulded BuzzFeed Australia's national Indigenous affairs round, travelling the country and filing a range of
stories on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues. His reporting on the cold case death of Aboriginal teenager Mark Haines for BuzzFeed saw the case re-opened after 29 years. In 2015, Allan was nominated for a Walkley award for outstanding Indigenous affairs coverage. This year, Allan was named as one of the 50 most influential LGBT people in Australia by Cosmopolitan magazine. (Photo credit: Anna Medoza / BuzzFeed)
