Steve Bibb’s production credits include Great Southern Land and Two Men in China for the ABC, Hardliners and MegaTruckers for the A&E channels and true crime series Wanted for Network Ten.

He spent nearly a decade as a Nine Network producer and executive producer after working as a journo for Fairfax in Sydney, News Limited and News International in London.

He co-authored with Bronte Cullis the book Bronte’s Story, which recounted the Melbourne teenager's battle with anorexia nervosa, a spin-off of three documentaries he produced on her journey.

Bibb said, “To be offered the role of head of factual at the ABC is a rare honour - a privilege - and it is truly exciting to be a part of a first class creative team at the national broadcaster.”
