In 1981, while a student at Chevalier College in Burradoo, NSW, Hartcher was national winner of the Sydney Morning Herald's Plain English Speaking competition and won a trip to England, where he won the international final the following year.

His career in journalism began the following year with a cadetship at the Sydney Morning Herald. In 1986, he took up his first overseas posting as the newspaper's Tokyo correspondent.

On his return to Australia in 1988, Hartcher was made chief political correspondent, a position he held until 1991, when he accepted a job with the Australian Financial Review as Tokyo correspondent.

Between 1995 and 2000 he was the Australian Financial Review's Asia-Pacific Editor. His 1996 investigative series uncovering the secret negotiation of a security treaty between Australia and Indonesia won the Australian journalism award, the Gold Walkley.  He then went to the US for three years, where he was the Washington DC correspondent. In 1998, he was the recipient of the Citibank Award for Excellence in Journalism. In 2004, Hartcher rejoined the Sydney Morning Herald in his current capacity. From Wikipedia.
