Sandra Sully (born 18 February 1965) is an Australian news presenter and journalist and editor for Sydney's 10 News First since 2011, previously being the presenter of the news bulletin on Network Ten's Ten Late News with Sports Tonight until she presented the (then) final edition of the program.
Life and career
Sully attended Brisbane State High School.
Sully was the first Australian television journalist to cover news of the 11 September terrorist attacks. She was on air when the first attack occurred and, shortly afterwards, began presenting live breaking coverage.
She also hosted Cool Aid Australia's National Carbon Test.
In June 2013, Sully and a fellow Channel Ten journalist, Matt Doran, headed a new police crime program on Monday nights called Wanted, where she also does interviews with victims loved ones to appeal for the public to help solve the case by calling Crimestoppers.
As of 2018, Sully presents 10 News First Sydney. She has also hosted major network news events such as the federal budget, the royal wedding coverage from London and Oprah Winfrey’s big ‘O’ event at the Botanical Gardens.
Sully's career includes nearly two decades as the presenter and senior editor of Ten Late News with Sports Tonight alongside Brad McEwan, who presented Sports Tonight in the bulletin. Sully has subsequently covered the anniversary commemorations of both the Bali bombings and the September 11 attacks.
Sully’s documentary credits include: travelling to Timor in 2010 to produce Independent Future to report on how the then-new nation was coping post-liberation.
Sully presented Ten Eyewitness News Brisbane in the 1990s, where she originally started out, before presenting Ten's flagship Sydney 5 pm weeknight bulletin.

Sully married banking executive Symon Brewis-Weston on 10 September 2011, becoming stepmother to his adopted daughter.
