Chris Uhlmann flags retirement

“It’s time to give someone else a crack," says Nine's Chief Political Editor.

Nine’s Chief Political Editor Chris Uhlmann has signalled his intention to retire, likely at the end of 2022.

“My contract runs out at the end of this year,” he told The Australian.

“I am not at this point planning to go any longer than that. I’m 61, I will be 62 this year, and I’m approaching retirement.

“It’s time to give someone else a crack.”

Uhlmann joined Nine from the ABC in 2017, replacing legendary Laurie Oakes.

Since moving from ABC to Nine he has been more forthright with opinions on air and in print columns, sometimes drawing heated responses from social media.

Uhlmann is also co-author of The Marmalade Files and The Mandarin Code which was the basis for Foxtel drama, Secret City.
