Amelia Brace Wiki – Biography
Amelia Brace is a Channel Seven journalist who together with her cameraman, Tim Myers were caught up in a stampede as police violently cleared an anti-racism protest in Washington D.C. Shocking video broadcast live on Sunrise shows a police officer in riot gear bashing Myers with a shield before punching the camera.
Another officer then directs the pair, who was trapped against a wall, to move on, before appearing to smack Brace in the back with a baton. “We’ve just had to run about a block as police moved in, we’ve been fired at with rubber bullets, my cameraman has been hit,” she said. “We’ve also seen tear gas being used.”

She spent three and a half years she spent in the Federal Press Gallery in Canberra – a career goal she achieved before the age of 30 – that has had the most impact on her. “That was my dream job,” she tells My Weekly Preview on a recent visit home. “It was amazing. When I first got there I was like a kid in a candy store.
The offer to work in LA came out of the blue and while she was hesitant to leave Canberra, she realized it was an offer she couldn’t refuse and made the move in April 2017.
“My goal was always Canberra and I got there,” she says. “It’s weird now because I’ve done it and exceeded it. I don’t know where I’ll move after LA, but I’m happy to stay there for a few years.
Besides sinking her teeth into the tough stories, being based in LA also requires her to cover awards events, which this year has been marked by a major difference.
Brace graduated from the University of the Sunshine Coast with a journalism degree in 2008 and now lives in Los Angeles, working as a US correspondent for Channel Seven.

She competed in debating competitions at an elite level where she thrived at being able to think on her feet and developed her skills at speaking in front of a crowd.”

“The attack on our reporter and cameraman in Washington today is nothing short of wanton thuggery,” Mr McPherson said in a statement issued from Seven on Tuesday afternoon.
“They weren’t in anyone’s way just simply doing their job.
“To be belted with an armoured shield and then our reporter cop a truncheon in the back is abhorrent.
“The Prime Minister has informed us he’s been in touch with our embassy in Washington to have the matter urgently investigated. We are making our own complaints through the appropriate channels.”
