Widely respected newscaster
John Mangos is working as a journalist in Australia for thirty-six years and has spent the last thirty-three working in television news.
Mangos is a news presenter with the Seven Network and is a regular contributor to the Sunrise and Morning Show programs.
Prior to this, he was a senior anchor at Skynews Australia for fifteen years.
He also spent fourteen years with National Nine News where he worked in the Federal Parliamentary Press Gallery and as the NSW State Political correspondent before he became the network’s United States bureau chief based in Los Angeles.
He returned from the United States after Graham Kennedy’s request, to co-host the top rating nightly Coast to Coast news program.
Mangos was also a guest host of Nine’s Today Show and the Midday Show.
He then moved to Network Ten to present Eyewitness News, but a year later was lured back to Nine for the irresistible chance to be an international roving reporter for the Midday Show.
Mango’s long and distinguished career was rewarded when the Seven Network offered him his own chat show, At Home With John Mangos, which aired nationally for two years.
John has also worked as the breakfast host on Sydney radio station 2KY, and as the afternoon host on 2UE.
Mangos lives in Sydney, where he runs his own media consultancy, Megisti Media, which was named after the Greek island of his family’s origin, Kastellorizo. He is also Director of Media for international financial corporate relations firm FTI.
Mangos frequently donates his time to charity fundraisers. He is a past patron of the Make A Wish Foundation, a former steering committee member of Jeans For Genes, a past board member of OceanWatch and the Sydney Olympic Football Club. He is a past patron of the Trish Cairns Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation at St.Vincent’s Hospital, and is the current patron for Friends In Giving which raises funds for the Sir David Martin Foundation.
He was recently honoured by Life Education with the Golden Harold Award for his thirty year contribution to children’s charities.
Mangos is an official ambassador for the Sydney Swans Football Club, and has been bestowed with a Life Membership.
Mangos has two sons, Kosta, born in December 2007 and Apollo, born 2010.
