Vanessa O’Hanlon to leave ABC News Breakfast

ABC News Breakfast weather presenter Vanessa O’Hanlon has announced her departure after 8 years with the breakfast programme.

She made the announcement today citing “mixed emotions.”

“I’m going to have some sleep-ins and turn the alarm clock off for the next few months and then move onto my next challenge,” she said.

“So it’s very exciting but I’m going to miss you guys.”

“Stop it! You’re making us all cry,” Michael Rowland replied.

On Friday ABC News Breakfast marks its 8th birthday.


  1. I’m absolutely gutted! Mornings will never be the same again.
    I just hope that the ABC find a role for her, and she isn’t poached by one of the commercial networks, she’s too good to be a giggling sidekick or fronting some tacky reality competition.
