Lisa Millar is a renowned Australian presenter and reporter, appearing alongside Michael Rowland on ABC News Breakfast, three hours of live television every weekday.
She joined her co-host on the couch permanently in August of 2019, replacing Virginia Trioli.
Previously, Lisa was considered ABC’s top foreign correspondent for ABC News based in London and Washington DC.
Virginia, who hosted News Breakfast since it began in 2008, felicitated Lisa on her new joining.

Even today, she recalls the time growing up on a dairy farm with her family.
Lisa’s parents, Clarrie Millar and Dorothy, were looking forward to their 70th amazing anniversary; unfortunately, her father, Clarrie, who served in the federal parliament for sixteen years, died in 2017.
In 1974, Clarrie was elected to the federal parliament as the Country Party member for Wide Bay. However, he made sure that there be no special privileges granted to his daughter while she worked at the Gympie Times at that time.
Followed by her father’s death, a year later, even her mother passed away.

Lisa confessed how her parents had forever been her “greatest cheerleaders,” and the fact that she still can cry about them speaks it all- what family really means to her.
Lisa is not married, and she is the only Millar-sibling who doesn't have children.
Famously secluded when it comes to her personal life, Lisa, however, commented about her 50th birthday dinner with her four siblings, coming from them, her eleven nieces and nephews, and thirteen great-nieces and great-nephews.
Her eldest brother is 70, and her youngest sister is 48 as of the 14th of August 2019.
This being the most that she talked about her private affairs, her relationship status still remains buttoned-up.
For her rare skill to cover hard-edge news or some serious analysis on international politics and a quick switch to do some lighter stuff, she is paid a salary that she is yet to unfold.
Note: According to ziprecruiter.com, as of the 15th of December 2019, the average annual pay for an ABC News Reporter in the United States is estimated somewhere around $43k per year.
