Philip Alpers

Presenter, Reporter

With his eccentric wardrobe and hard-hitting stories, Philip Alpers has been one of Fair Go's most memorable hosts. Not just a one trick pony, he presented dozens of documentaries and series during his time in television. Since backing off from reporting, Alpers has founded gun injury organisation GunPolicy.org, and is currently an associate professor at Sydney University's Medical School.

As if there weren't enough outrageous clothes on set, Philip Alpers joined… to stun Fair Go viewers with his white suits, glittering silk ties, and collection of fedoras and panamas. Phil was a larger-than-life character with a huge frame and memorable, Shakespearean bald head. Kevin Milne, in his 2010 autobiography The Life and Times of a Brown Paper Bag
