Channel Nine’s Brisbane newsreader Bruce Paige who announced he would be retiring on July 10th will now make his exit tomorrow.
Friday’s 6pm bulletin will be his last, which follows the final edition of Extra.
“Having made the decision (to go) I’ve had a chance to say cheerio to all the friends up here and I think I want to get on with it,” he told The Courier-Mail.
Paige insists it was his decision to finish early and he is “looking at a few (future job) options with a friend” but would only confirm they were not to do with television. He ruled out a return to the ABC.
With newsreader Andrew Lofthouse joining Melissa Downes from Monday, the new look coincides with the launch of THIS afternoon.
