Seven News Brisbane presenter Kay McGrath has announced her departure, ending a 40 year run in Australian television, the time is right to pursue other passions.
She told the Courier Mail, “It’s something I have thought about for a long time, it’s not a decision I’ve made lightly – it’s the end of a decade and it’s more than 40 years.
“There is a lot of change going on in the industry, there has been change in my life, I have had other opportunities come in since stepping off the Monday-to-Friday newsdesk and it just seems like the right time to transition into another challenge.
She will be replaced by Katrina Blowers, 43, a senior reporter and presenter who has been with the network for eight years.
McGrath’s final weekend news bulletin will be next month.
