Beverley O'Connor (born 14 November) is a Melbourne journalist and broadcaster.
O'Connor worked for both ABC radio and television. She specialised in economics and politics and was a presenter on 774 ABC Melbourne for 5 years before moving to the Seven Network in 2004. She was weeknight sports presenter on Seven News Melbourne until January 2005, when she was replaced by Sandy Roberts.
She was the entertainment presenter on the Seven Network's Melbourne Weekender in 2006 and she previously formed a part of the Vega 91.5 FM radio breakfast crew alongside Dave O'Neil, Shaun Micallef and Denise Scott. O'Connor used to read the news and traffic throughout the breakfast program until she resigned in mid-2007.
Away from broadcasting O'Connor was the first female director of the Melbourne Football Club, where she was on the board for nine years, and the first female to hold a vice-presidency role with an Australian Football League (AFL) club. She stood down from the board in 2008, the year in which there was a challenge led by Jim Stynes.
