He is currently a news presenter with the Seven Network and is a regular contributor to the Sunrise and Morning Show programs.
Prior to this John was a senior anchor at Skynews Australia for fifteen years.
A widely respected newscaster, John 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.
John returned from the United States at the request of the “King Of Australian Television” Graham Kennedy, to co-host the top rating nightly Coast to Coast news program.
John went on to make documentaries for the Nine Network as well as hosting the Our World series on Sunday nights.
At that time he was 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 his old stomping ground at Nine for the irresistible chance to be an international roving reporter for the Midday Show.
John’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.
John started a media training business ten years ago and five years ago took up the role of Director of Interview and Presentation training at global strategic communications group, FTI.
