Chris Bath read her final bulletin last night in Sydney, ending 20 years with Seven News.
There were tributes from sports presenter -and husband- Jim Wilson, Melissa Doyle and weather presenter Sarah Cumming.
“I want to thank everyone at Seven for a wonderful 20 years,” she said.
“And thank you to everyone at home for watching. I think we’ve got a tape to play you. I don’t know how my hair’s going to come off…”
She also penned an article in News Corp, recalling some personal highlights:
In 20 years at Seven, on so many different programs, there have been many moments like this. I reckon it’s built on trust. Trust in every crew member’s professionalism, and their trust in yours. For instance, when throwing your mouth into reverse:
Director in earpiece: “Live pics from the chopper coming in now.”
Bathie: “We have live pictures from the Seven News chopper above … Brisbane …(Earpiece: “Sorry lost it”) … coming in soon but first let’s …(Earpiece: KIM SKUBRIS SKUBRIS)
… go to Kim Skubris who’s near one of the worst flooded suburbs …” You get the idea.
Chris Bath presents her final Sunday Night tomorrow after Dancing with the Stars.
