Ryan Heffernan is a recognised Australian television producer, investigative journalist and writer. Ryan worked for News Limited before going behind the scenes as an investigative producer with the Seven Network’s Today Tonight and is now a freelance journalist.
Ryan has flown headlong into a cyclone in a light plane, sat with the families of Bali bombing victims and roamed Queensland’s Palm Island with locals, following a riot in response to an Aboriginal death in custody. He was almost run over in a car after he questioned a man who sold his baby for $10,000. But in the end it was Ryan’s one-year-old son who brought him completely undone, tasking him with the greatest challenge he may ever face. Single parenthood.
