John Mangos is an Australian news presenter.

He is also a host on talk back radio station 2UE and a regular on Sunrise on the Seven Network. He has also made cameo appearances on the Australian comedy programs Pizza and Swift and Shift Couriers.

Mangos began his career as a journalist for National Nine News in 1978 at the GTV 9 newsroom in Melbourne. He was hired by legendary News Director John Sorrell who wanted to make Mangos the first Greek-Australian face on mainstream commercial television. During his 14 years with the Nine Network] he covered State and Federal Politics before becoming the United States correspondent. In 1989, he joined Graham Kennedy on his late night news and current affairs program Coast to Coast, replacing Ken Sutcliffe. [1]

Mangos has also been a news presenter for Eyewitness News on the Ten Network, an international reporter for The Midday Show and the host of his own daytime chat show At Home with John Mangos on the Seven Network for two years.

In 2008, he became a contestant on It Takes Two, a variety show that teams celebrities with professional singers, who each week compete against each other in a sing-off to impress a panel of judges and ultimately the viewing public in order to survive potential elimination.

In June 2011, John Mangos was dismissed after 15 years as a Senior presenter at Sky News Australia. Mangos was embroiled in controversy after saying of a Chinese lottery winner who wore a mask to remain anonymous: "I don't know why he bothered. I mean, I can tell you now — he's Chinese. He's got straight black hair and he's got squinty eyes and yellow skin."[2]

Mangos lives in Sydney, where he runs his own media consultancy, Megisti Media, which was named after the Greek island of his family's origin, Kastellorizo. He is also Director of Media for international financial corporate relations firm FD Third Person.

Mangos is noted in frequently donating his time to charity fundraisers. He is a past Patron of the Make a Wish Foundation, a former steering committee member of Jeans for Genes and a current Ambassador for the Day of Difference foundation.

Mangos is also a passionate supporter and an official ambassador for the Sydney Swans Football Club and has an active interest in the club. In 2007 he was honoured with a life membership for his services to the club.
