Hi! I'm
AC Wimmer.
I am a writer & journalist
who is passionate about the Truth.

Together with a small team and a world-wide network of collaborators and partners, I provide ongoing professional news coverage and journalistic analysis for media and other clients.
As founding editor-in-chief I head up CNA Deutsch, a news agency of the ACI / CNA group and service of EWTN - the Global Catholic Network.
My work as author and broadcaster has appeared in Crux, Catholic Herald, die Tagespost, SBS Radio, heute.de, Pro Sieben, Münchner Merkur, Antenne Bayern and many more.
My expertise as commentator has been drawn on by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Aid to the Church in Need, Domradio, katholisch.de and the Catholic News Service.
My long-held dream to strike out on my own terms with WIMMER.MEDIA became possible in 2015, after I was approached by a number of potential clients seeking my services in both English and German.
At that time, I was serving as editor-in-chief of the Münchner Kirchenzeitung - a newspaper that played an historic part in the Catholic resistance against the Nazis.
An Australian who grew up bilingually in his native Bavaria and in South Africa, I started in journalism with a cadetship at a Munich daily newspaper in 1992, followed by some crazy adventures in commercial TV in 1990s Europe, before spending well over a decade working for Australia's SBS, first as broadcaster-journalist and then in several senior executive roles in both Melbourne and Sydney.
Both troubled and intrigued by journalism's strangely tenuous relationship with truth, I completed degrees in Philosophy and Chinese Studies at the University of Melbourne, followed up by postgraduate work exploring the epistemology of journalism at Monash University, where I simultaneously developed and implemented editorial guidelines for journalistic content across 68 language programs at SBS: A job for which my role of Manager, Quality and Standards had been created.
Like I said, I am passionate about the Truth.
A former Honorary Research Fellow in Communications at the University of Melbourne, I have taught newsroom journalism to undergraduates at Monash, sat on the jury of the Catholic Media Award of the German Bishops' Conference and on the Board of Caritas in the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising.
My wife Sabine and I met while training to be divemasters at the Melbourne Uni Underwater Club. We married in 2001 and are blessed with four wonderful children.​​​​​​​
