“It is with both sadness and excitement that I share some personal news. After almost 13 years, I have decided to take the step of leaving SBS in June to pursue other opportunities.
I am immensely proud of the way SBS has transformed in my time here, from a traditional TV and radio broadcaster in an analogue world, to an exciting and leading digital player providing a curated world of incredible content through streaming, podcasting and five highly distinctive channels.
Most of all I’ll miss my incredible colleagues, too many of them to individually name, who are so passionate about the SBS purpose and the role it plays in the Australian media. I leave knowing SBS is in terrific hands.
From bringing the world back home, to the world is an amazing place, to six billion stories and counting, and onwards, I know the future is bright.
I will share in the coming months what’s next, but for now I want to thank everyone who helped make my @SBS career so rich and rewarding.”
