The Age

Ben Doherty has worked for The Age since March 2006, and has covered stories such as Cyclone Larry in North Queensland, the 10th anniversary of the Port Arthur Massacre and the Beaconsfield mine disaster. He has also spent time working at The Age’s federal parliamentary bureau in the Canberra press gallery and has covered the AWB oil-for-food inquiry and the inquest into the death of Private Jake Kovco in Iraq.

Born in Singapore, Ben came to journalism after abortive attempts at a professional Australian Rules football career (first with the Brisbane Lions, then Melbourne) and a life as a musician. He worked at the Bendigo Advertiser before moving to The Canberra Times and, finally, The Age.

In 2008, Ben won the MEAA's Young Journalist of the Year Award for Best Print Journalist. The judges said Ben's series of work Doherty's work "rivalled that of more senior journalists, demonstrating the very best qualities of the profession".

Bendigo Football League's most wanted
09 Aug, 2003 10:37 PM

GOLDEN Square centre half-forward Ben Doherty has been rated the number one player in the All Seasons Bendigo Football League.

Doherty was the clear winner of an exclusive Advertiser poll, which asked the BFL's nine senior coaches to name their standout opposition player for the 2003 season.

``Pound for pound I think he (Doherty) is the best going around at the moment,'' Foster said.
``He's a guy who stands 6'3'', can run better than most of the midfielders in the league and also takes a good grab.''

Doherty was a massive fan of the footy glove, often you would find him out in town with his glove on!
