Alan Kohler quits Inside Business
Alan Kohler has decided to discontinue his ABC business show, ending in December after 12 years.
“It’s been tremendously rewarding presenting Inside Business for the past 12 years, working with some wonderful people at the ABC and interviewing Australia’s CEOs, some of them many times. But it’s time now to reduce my workload so I’m afraid it must end, although I’m keen to continue working with ABC,” he said.
Next year sports discussion program Offsiders, will go to air straight after Insiders at 10am.
ABC News Head of Current Affairs Bruce Belsham says the ABC remains committed to strong business coverage.
“We will continue to work with Alan on a range of business content,” he said. “ Through our wide range of in depth business reporting across all platforms and through programs like The Business and Business Today, we will continue to serve ABC audiences well with business news and analysis, and we will continue to explore new ways of delivering on this commitment.”
Kohler will continue with the ABC through his nightly market reports on the 7pm ABC News.
The last broadcast of Inside Business will air on Sunday, December 1.
