Bruce Belsham, ABC’s Head of Current Affairs said, “Live presenting is a highwire art, requiring skill and bravery. Sarah’s style, always civil but tenacious and thoroughly across the brief has resulted in a string of agenda-setting interviews.
“Congratulations and thanks to Sarah for her terrific work. She will now move to her next project as interviewer and writer of a documentary series on the Rudd/Gillard years.”
From Monday Chris Uhlmann will host for four weeks before Leigh Sales returns from maternity leave on September 8th.
Uhlmann’s radio role at AM sees Michael Brissenden as presenter for five weeks.
