Libby Middlebrook has been a journalist for 15 years.
She started out as a cadet reporter for a community newspaper in Hawke's Bay, and went on to study journalism at the Auckland University of Technology (then AIT).
Libby worked in newspapers for the first eight years of her career, largely at the New Zealand Herald, the Sunday Star-Times and the Waikato Times.
In 2005, she moved to TV3, and spent the next five years covering breaking news, court and crime.
This included an 18-month stint on Campbell Live as a current affairs reporter, before joining Fair Go in 2009.
Libby's always been one of Fair Go's biggest fans. She believes its success is down to its ability to advocate for everyday people, who often have nowhere else to turn.
Libby is married with two daughters.
