National rural reporter.
Mike Foley is the climate and energy correspondent for The Ageand The Sydney Morning Herald.
Mike Foley has been recognised for his "outstanding contribution" at the National Rural Press Club's Excellence in Rural Journalism Awards in Canberra this week.
Mr Foley was honoured for his work as the national rural affairs writer for Australian's Community Media's agricultural mastheads.
A statement from the National Rural Press Club said:
"Michael has made an outstanding contribution almost every week on the biggest issues of the year; water, drought and the Murray Darling Basin plan.
"He consistently explains difficult and complex issues clearly and concisely, including breaking stories along the way. Neither farming or city audiences would be as well informed without his efforts."
