About Ahron Young

Ahron Young has reported from some of the major stories of our time.

From the Asian Tsunami in 2004, to the London Bombings.

Ahron began his career in newspapers before moving into radio news and then eventually TV.

Having spent 13 years as the Melbourne Bureau Chief for Sky News, Ahron was also a founding anchor of RT in Moscow in 2005 and journalist for the Sky News Business Channel in 2008.

But as content shifts online, Ahron noticed a space for a great streaming news service – and thus Ticker was born.
