Clancy Overell is the 4th, arguably 5th generation editor of The Betoota Advocate. Despite being from a prominent Outback publishing dynasty, Overell has also worked in the real world. Firstly, as a semi-professional rugby league player who captained the Betoota Dolphins RLFC to a 1976 grand final loss against the Cunnamulla Rams, but also as a roo-shooter, tent-boxer and opal fossicker.
Errol Parker is the editor-at-large of The Betoota Advocate, a small and independent regional newspaper from far west Queensland. Unlike most of the reporters in the Advocate’s newsroom, Parker has also been overseas to other countries. He has worked closely with the Murdoch family over the years, predominantly plying his trade in the red tops of London. Following the Leveson Inquiry, Parker quickly relocated to the Diamantina Shire on his brother’s passport.
