TEN Adelaide newsreader Belinda Heggen (pictured, right) has quit the network, effective immediately.
The Advertiser reports she has quit because there are no longer dual presenter roles available on evening news.
TEN recently affirmed that Heggen would continue to be part of the local team, but declined to detail her role going forward.
The network recently reduced its evening bulletins from 90 to 60 minutes around the country, but the Advertiser notes Heggen was on leave at this time and chose to exit after learning there was no second presenting role available.
Heggen made headlines last year with her on-air joke to a sports presenter Mark Aiston about the size of his manhood. She later said she was just getting in first, because it was usually Aiston dropping the gags on-air.
