Richard Willingham of ABC Radio News has won the 2020 Quill for Radio News.
Willingham broke the story that led to the resignation of the Health Minister Jenny Mikakos. Reporting on a tight deadline, he quickly identified inconsistencies between her testimony to the hotel quarantine inquiry and what was on the public record. It was a story of immense importance to the state - the hotel quarantine bungle ultimately leading to one of the world’s longest COVID lockdowns.
