The three-time Walkley-winning journalist has been producing 7.30 for three years and has previously worked for The 7.30 Report, Lateline, Foreign Correspondent, ABC News and Four Corners itself.
ABC Head of Current Affairs Bruce Belsham said: “Sally has reinvigorated 7:30 into an agenda-setting must-watch and she has great experience in investigative television journalism.
“She will be a worthy inheritor of Sue’s outstanding tenure at Four Corners.”
“I am thrilled and honoured to be taking over the reins at Four Corners. It is an enormous privilege and challenge to become EP of Australia’s finest and longest standing public affairs program,” Neighbour added.
Her replacement on 7:30 will be announced in coming weeks.
