She has also worked in newspapers and commercial television, and spent two years working for China Central Television in Beijing. Her reporting has been recognized with three Melbourne Press Club Quill awards and the Ruby Hutchison Award for coverage of consumer issues, and has helped to bring change for consumers in telecommunications and banking.
Bainbridge has covered four Paralympic Games as a commentator and has a Master of Middle Eastern and Central Asian Studies.
