Fight For Planet A host nominated for an International Format Award


The highly anticipated International Format Awards, celebrating the best of the best in creative format ideas, announced the finalists last night - with one of the ABC’s funniest and favourite hosts shortlisted.

A finalist in the Best Host of a Format category, the ABC’s comedy and documentary star, Craig Reucassel has been nominated for his work fronting Fight for Planet A. Craig is a popular speaker, writer and comedian, best known and highly respected for his work on ABC’s TV program War on Waste and the satirical comedy series The Chaser. Calm, quick witted and balanced in his approach to complex issues, Craig’s deep knowledge and passion for climate change solutions makes him the perfect host.

Fight for Planet A takes a positive approach to reducing our carbon footprint and helping to protect our planet for future generations. Features shocking statistics, revealing stunts, and many pro-active tips and strategies for everyday Australians who want to be part of the solution in tackling climate change.

Exploring the ways in which we can all help reduce both our individual and collective carbon emissions, this empowering and motivating series focuses on three critical pillars: exploring where our energy comes from, the effects of transport and travel emissions, plus the carbon footprint of our food and what we eat.

Craig demonstrates the importance of informing and entertaining people whilst driving real-world awareness and change - at a time when people are searching for ways to get involved and make a difference.

Winners of The International Format Awards will be announced in a digital ceremony on April 13.
