More changes…this time at RN
ABC Radio National's Paul Comrie-Thompson is leaving to pursue other interests following the recent resignation of his co-host Michael Duffy.
Station Manager Michael Mason thanked Paul Comrie-Thompson for his service.
“I’d like to thank Paul for his contribution to the range of opinions which help to make RN a vital part of contemporary conversations. I wish him well in his future endeavours and would like to thank him for his dedication to the RN audience over the last six and a half years.”
Paul Comrie-Thompson said…
“After a wonderful six and a half years, it’s the right time to seek new opportunities. I’ve left on a high note, and as I said on air, “I wouldn’t have missed it for quids!”
The current lineup on Counterpoint will continue to be heard through August.
During September, a list of guest presenters will host the show. Then from October, Amanda Vanstone, the former politician, will guest host Counterpoint.
Mr. Mason said…
“We’re pleased that someone of Amanda Vanstone’s pedigree is joining the RN line-up in 2012. I’m confident she’ll make an exciting contribution to the range of voices on the network and provide engaging commentary which encourages debate.”
Amanda Vanstone confirmed her appointment…
“I can assure Radio National listeners they won’t be disappointed! I’m really looking forward to speaking my mind and ruffling a few feathers.”
